AxxiTRIALS Portal and CoSign Digital Signatures Enable Accelerated Site and Study Initiations

Litera, vanguard in risk and productivity management solutions, and ARX Inc., the global leader in digital signature solutions, are pleased to announce that the Litera AxxiTRIALS clinical trial site portal is now powered by version 6 of the CoSign digital signature system. The new features in this latest release of ARX further the AxxiTRIALS powerful and 21 CFR Part 11 compliant Esignature functionality.

Litera AxxiTRIALS, a secure portal solution that speeds trial operations processes from Feasibility to Close-Out, helps complete studies on time, on budget and with the quality of data required. In the AxxiTRIALS portal, trial teams (including sponsors, CROs, investigators and IRBs) work together on clinical trials collaborating on documents while avoiding the delays and costs typically associated with paper-based studies.

The CoSign digital signature engine enables AxxiTRIALS to completely eliminate the need to reintroduce paper each time a signature is required, and also eliminates courier fees and other paper-related costs. Now, with the latest release from ARX, users can expedite their site and study initiation and continue site activities at lower costs, while gaining significant cost savings considering the range of documents that require signatures and the number of sites that can be involved in a single study.

Susan Lewenz, Vice President and General Manager at Litéra AxxiTRIALS, notes: “We are big believers in reducing paper in the trials and CoSign has been a huge part of this. This new release furthers the power under the AxxiTRIALS “hood”. Our AxxiTRIALS clients are now able to collect 85% of the signatures they need in a period of 24-48 hours.”

“CoSign is a key tool for Pharma companies seeking to accelerate processes,” says Rodd Schlerf, FDA Markets Manager at ARX. “AxxiTRIALS is a great example of how collaborative cloud services can also benefit from integrating CoSign into their systems in order to provide their users with the ability to securely and compliantly sign documents.”
