Very positive. It's a compliant, easy to use, intuitive system that is affordable.After a quick initial learning curve the system is easy to build out without having someone on staff that is an IT expert. Our clinical study managers are able to build out each study with little to no help from Castor. The database is easy to use by both clinical sites and sponsors. The company continues to improve the features of the system and provide webcasts to review the changes and answer user questions. The value can't be beat. As an early-stage start up company we are happy to have found a high-quality compliant system we can afford.

Castor has a good customers service who supports you when you encounter any difficulties and provides you with helpful tips/solutions. It is easy for a non-experienced database builder to create your own database using Castor. The database is easy to use for data-entry, monitoring and creating reports or surveys. You can add a lot of users and adjust the rights for each of the users. As an admin you have a clear overview on the progress of the study in all participating sites and you get a message every time a patient is included in the trial.

The ability to build our own research forms and surveys, quickly and in GDPR compliant way is a massive help for us as it has drastically reduced the cost of this and also the time it takes to get the forms built. It means we can do research faster and cheaper and with compliance headaches handled. The support from Castor has been amazing. They are very quick to respond (even to stupid questions!) and gave us huge support before we signed up. We literally have found tons of uses for Castor. The ability to build your own forms quickly and knowing the data is stored in a GDPR Compliant way is a HUGE help for us. Also the validation options in the fields are really good / ensure high level of data quality. And Also, The SPSS export function is really a great help too!

CASTOR incorporates everything that I wanted from an electronic data capture program, and is so easy to use that everyone can work with it. CASTOR for me is the answer to electronic data capture. It is easy to use, you have full control, it is safe and data from several sources can be incorporated. Can be used by the investigator, monitor as well as the participant for answering the questionnaires. I also like the fact that the software keeps being developed and better features are added regulary. Communication is excellent.

What I like about Castor is that I can create a user-friendly database that will also create a user-friendly output, i.e. that I can already prepare the data as much as possible to make data analysis easier.

It is very intuitive to use. It's very easy to design a CRF. Customer support is always available to help with queries, if there are any. I honestly did not have any trouble at all running my study on Castor. I would recommend it to everyone and I strongly believe collaborative research is the way to go forward.

Review Source: Capterra

Great interface, dummy-proof, adheres to GCP-requirements without being disturbing to users. Hardly any bugs noted, but if there, they will be fixed within a few hours. Ability to make accounts for different users with different restrictions (fantastic!). Recommendations: - Options to build eCRFS could be extended somewhat, e.g. medication module - Other randomisation algorithms - Option to adjust the planned dates for surveys (future survey invites) that have already been saved.

One of the best online data entry packages

Reviewed 2016-04-26
Review Source: Capterra

Pros: Secure website, easy to use and error proof. Every answer is stored so when the internet fails, you don't lose information. Multi user, adaptable. Error checking but also flexible. So if you want to enter some strange data and you have a good reason, it is still possible. Still works great with large data. Cons. Data entry is a bit slow and data entry with the keyboard is on my wish-list. Now all data must be entered with mouse clicks and for multiple choice that can be a burden.

We used Castor EDC for a clinical trial at the Department of Cardiology of the VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam. Building the case report form was quick and easy due to the intuitive system. Data entry was subsequently performed by several cardiologists, research fellows and research nurses . Using the export function we were able to analyze the data directly, enabling us to speed up the process of drafting and publishing manuscripts. Customer service was outstanding; questions were answered instantaneously, requests were addressed adequately and minor issues were solved within minutes. In conclusion, Castor EDC offers great value for money and more. We highly recommend it's use.

National survey on fertility preservation: done in one afternoon

Without any prior knowledge or course (just the oneline manual) I was able to make a suitable draft for a national survey. The software is very intuitive and complete, and the resulting forms are clear and consise. The participants of the survey were able to fill it out, with hardly any intrtoduction needed. It is easy to design different user roles, to ensure that participants can only see their own data and not the data entered by the other participants.

I used the Castor EDC to create an eCRF for two large multicenter trials (24 centers and 260 subjects). I was amazed how easy it was. The eCRF works extremely well and we have received many compliments from our Belgium sites about the easy lay-out and user-friendliness. The costumer service is excellent and I get response within a few hours ( no matter how stupid my question is). The Castor team update and improve their system all the time. We are very satified with this software.

The Castor software is easy to use, webbased and has an excellent user interface. We use the software for a research with substantial amount of data. In general it works very good, only sometimes we have to wait for the server and you have to renew the page. I recommend the software for research purposes. Research will be easier to monitor and to avoid loss of data.....

eCRF creation and updates

Reviewed 2015-08-24
Review Source: Capterra

You don't need extensive IT/programming skills in order to create your desired eCRF. This might make the eCRF less flexible, but I believe you still have all the tools you need. Furthermore: if you think Castor doesn't have what you need, their Customer Service is great. They will reply to your question/remark almost always the same day and help you with (figuring out) a solution. Or implement your request in an update :)
