Birth And Evolution Of Kapture - 'The Good Old Days'
The system was originally built and developed in conjunction with our sister company, Data Magik Ltd, and there are still has strong links because of the expertise in and knowledge of the very specialist area of clinical research development.
From the company's beginning in 1999 the Data Management and Statistical Services team had always developed and used it's own bespoke Clinical Data Management System (CDMS).
The CDMS provided tools for Data Entry staff to enter data from paper CRFs into SAS datasets and then functionality to process and manage those data.
Originally the system was locally based using only SAS/AF but then progressed with the advent of EDC to a internet based solution using MS Silverlight which was designed to separate the functions of design and application programming.
During this time the team developed from a pool of Data Management staff alone to one with Application Developers closely integrated into the membership.
We feel this is one of the reasons for our success. The Systems we develop are ones that the End users want and can use on a daily basis because they're so closely involved in all aspects of the development process .
Not Quite 'Out With The Old And In With The New' But Certainly 'Old School - New Tech'!
Our Data Magik colleagues are very much tethered to the 'Old school' methods but are always on the look out for new technologies that our Developers can integrate which will not only make their jobs easier but improve efficiency and maintain or even increase quality
New Kapture - 'The Digital Revolution'
Now in it's 7th version, as an 'all singing and dancing', browser based application using html5 that everyone can access and everyone loves to use.
Kapture now dramatically reduces time to Clinical Study Reporting thereby leading to shorter product submissions and thus saving money.
No wonder Kapture is set to become the 'tool of choice' when it comes to providing a complete Clinical Development solution for the Pharmaceutical industry worldwide.
