Trial Design


Using powerful mathematical models, the Supply App quantifies the impact of strategic decisions on supply chain costs. This data helps you make optimal decisions about protocol, kit design, country selection, and other factors, while keeping site and patient centricity.

Use the Supply App to model the impact of accelerated timelines on the supply chain, avoid bottlenecks, and find the most effective solutions.

Trial Plan


The Supply App gives you all the tools you need to create a clear strategy and action plan. Using advanced analytics, the Supply App helps you make optimal decisions that minimize waste, costs, and risks.

Outcomes at this stage include:

  • Optimized packaging and sourcing campaigns
  • Optimized depot resupply strategy
  • Optimized IRT configuration
  • Reliable forecasts for inventories, shipments, patient demand, and more

Trial Monitoring


The Supply App doesn’t just help plan for unexpected circumstances before the trial — it helps you monitor and respond to them as they arise.

While the trial is ongoing, the Supply App uses machine learning to re-evaluate assumptions about recruitment, demand, drop-out, titrations, weight, and other factors, and to continuously optimize the supply chain strategy based on real-time data.

Meanwhile, monitoring dashboards provide complete visibility into the day-to-day progress of the trial and quickly identify where attention is needed.
