Quintiles goes mobile with its technology platform

Pharmaceutical services giant Quintiles is going mobile with its Infosario technology platform.

The Infosario One Mobile App was developed because customers need “information at their fingertips in order to keep connected, in order to make decisions, to intervene at the right point in time,” Margaret Keegan, senior vice president of data sciences and strategy at Quintiles, said in a video released by the company.

Durham-based Quintiles, the world’s largest contract research organization, helps pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies conduct clinical trials of experimental drugs and analyze the results. Customers can use the app to access data about the start up of investigational sites, patient recruitment and project milestones.

The app also can be “personalized” so that users can quickly access the data they’re most interested in.

Keegan touted the app as “easy to use.”

Quintiles announced Tuesday that the Infosario One Mobile App is now available for free and can be downloaded at the Apple App Store for use with the Apple iPhone, iPad and IPod touch.

An Android version of the app also is planned, but the company didn’t specify a release date.

Quintiles has more than 33,000 employees worldwide, including roughly 2,500 in the Triangle.
