Great experience with Smart-Trial EDC

Reviewed 2 years ago

We use Smart Trial for 3 different clinical studies, in 5 different clinical sites, during the last 2 years. It is a flexible and user friendly platform which helps us to manage and control the studies data with minimal efforts of the clinical team or from our side.

Pros

The SW is very easy to use and friendly to implement. We get very good support and high flexibility with payment. We can manage multiple small clinical pilots in a reasonable price and by self- deployment and adjustment to our needs.

Cons

There are several features that are not available yet. Monthly payment even when no patients are active. For us, better option may be to pay per patient recruited to the study. Minimal analysis tools

Vendor response

Thank you very much for this kind review. We are aware of the fact that there are always missing features and a system like SMART-TRIAL is never finished. In relation to that, it's important that you keep sharing feature requests with us, so we can make sure that they are taken into account for further product development. We greatly appreciate the cooperation with DosenTRX and look forward to continuing the cooperation.

Medical device clinical research projects (mainly retrospective studies)

Pros

It has an user-friendly interface, rather intuitive set-up, easy to create and save your processes, duplicate comands for future use.

Cons

I would suggest to improve the data export process (more possibilities in terms if data export formats)

Vendor response

Thank you for your review, we appreciate your direct and honest feedback. We are continuously updating the SMART-TRIAL platform and have recently included additional export options. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly, if you have specific export needs. We are happy to assist.

SMART-TRIAL for small scale clinical studies

Reviewed a year ago

I have been using SMART -TRIAL for relatively small clinical studies, both post market and first in human. I like the ease of set-up and the full control I have and I very much appreciate the SMART-TRIAL team on their positive attitude and the ongoing improvement of their product.

Pros

Easy to set-up and full control over amendments after initial release. Excellent customer support, the SMART-TRIAL team is always available, happy to help and eager to constantly improve their product in response to your feedback.

Cons

The ability to track data in a smart and convenient way. Although data export has been much improved it is still not satisfactory to my needs.

Definitely recommend

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

First of all I am satisfied with the ease of use of Smart-Trial from Data Manager perspective. Creating new studies is really simple, logical, intuitive and new features are systematically added allowing to build a study exactly the way I want. Building a new study is a pleasure. Once the study is up and running and patient data is collected, everything works as expected as well. Data managers and...

Cons

As I mentioned when writing about the advantages, there are a few minor details that could be improved, but they are rather tiny things that would be nice to have and they in no way diminish my evaluation of Smart-Trial. For example: - There should be a possibility to open more than 1 query per question, - The ability to export a list of queries to an excel file would be valuable. - Currently there...

Smart trial for advanced prostate cancer drug trial

Reviewed a year ago

We have been able to set up a clinical trial with different drugs in a fast way in several countries and have good data quality.

Pros

Easy to learn how to build our study and to train our sites on how to use it. We had very little time and not a lot of money when we had to find a system that would fit our demands and could be launched fast. We are still developing our study and there are some very nice features which have been released recently, that we will implement in a study amendment. Provided templates are very nice (SOP, training log etc)

Cons

It would be nice to have a graphical presentation of how for example specific lab values are changing over time, i.e. in our case how PSA values change over time.

Thank you for the fantastic review, we're very happy to hear about your experience with the SMART-TRIAL platform.

Easy to set up and customize

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

The product was very easy to set up, customize and get going . I could set up a study in a matter of days and be ready for data collection within a week. The Smart-Trial team was always available to answer any questions in a timely matter and assist when needed. Some features were missing in the beginning, however after talking to the product team they were able to listen to what features were important for us and implement them in one of their future hotfix releases. Overall, I would recommend this product to everyone.

Cons

One feature that would be very useful to implement is the ability to add rows as needed to a table so you do not have to have a predetermined number of rows which may often consist of blank rows.

Vendor response

Thank you for the kind review - we greatly appreciate your honest and uplifting review. The dynamic rows (add rows as needed) possibility has been available in SMART-TRIAL for some time. It should be possible to implement for your studies. We'll get in touch with your team to get this implemented for your studies asap.

Great product and awesome support for conducting a GCP trial

Reviewed 4 months ago

The overall experience was enjoyable, we were able to set up a GCP trial in almost a month. Smart-trial support team was responsive in that process and also when issues came up. For example changing questionnaire when the trial was already running or how to use certain features.

Pros

First of all the product is easy to use and also to set up, if you have the forms and process planned setting it up took no time. Smart-Trial then also gives you the possibility to integrate your own processes and products with it through their API, that is absolutely awesome and was very important for our trial. Finally, Smart-Trial's support team is very professional and responsive, never experienced this with other products.

Cons

We wanted to see continuous outcome measure from smart devices supported when we started the trial and ease of use to export those measurements. Now I actually see that it has already been implemented which is positive

Great tool for surveys

Reviewed 2 years ago

Excellent way to manage customer surveys and data from them.

Pros

SMART-TRIAL is easy to use and, in cases of doubt, the support is fantastic: both efficient and friendly. The data storage and adherence to standards is completely trustworthy. New functions are continually developed based on user input.

Cons

There are occasionally things that I would like to do in terms of setting up questionnaires and sending links to participants that are not possible, but functions are added regularly.

Vendor response

Thank you for the kind review! We greatly appreciate the clear and honest feedback! We are very happy to hear about your support experience, as this is a cornerstone of SMART-TRIAL.

PMCF Data collection

Pros

Easiness of use. GDPR and Privacy data security, guaranteed following standards and regulations for clinical data collection. Makes the reporting work for collaborators very easy when collecting data. Structured approach following medical device regulations requirements (including AE/AES reporting, audit log and mre).

Cons

Creating forms requires switching back and forward between "edit" and "preview" to monitor the layout. Labelling of the data variables is not easy - the final label could be visualised - to see it, I need to simulate a data download into excel - this is laborious!! No cloud shared storage of forms used in the work group available. Acessing forms created by others needs to be invited to the related study - not comfortable to use, if standard forms with edited labels for variables should be consequently re-used across multible studies and multible colleagues.

A Smart Choice

Reviewed a year ago

Value for money, fantastic support and it has added a useful tool to traditional data collection methods, which will make analysis and dissemination of data much more straightforward.

Pros

The product support and flexibility of the offer. The system well supports our research aims and data collection requirements and will enhance our processes to make them more streamlined.

Cons

It is not perhaps quite as intuitive and simple to set up trial processes as I would expect, however, support is there.

Brilliant software

Reviewed a year ago

Fantastic piece of software which has made the data collection part of my study a seamless process. I would highly recommend. Customer service and support has been fantastic throughout.

Pros

As a chief investigator I've found SmartTrials to be incredibly efficient piece of software. It is intuitive to use for all research team members. The functionality on setting up a trial is very easy to navigate. Being able to remotely view data and troubleshoot when running a multi centre trial is invaluable.

Cons

I'm pleased to see they have added a randomisation function to the software. At the time of our set-up this wasn't available but is a huge bonus having all aspects of the trial under one system.

Good product, excellent service

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

The SMART-TRIAL software is easy to use and has more than enough customizing features to adjust everything to our needs. The service itself is also very good: we received on-site training, were assisted during the set-up of our study, and can at any time expect to receive swift replies to our questions. In addition, we have experienced that comments and tips are thankfully received, and in time also incorporated into the software when possible.

Cons

For our type of study, we have not encountered any major feature that is missing.

Vendor response

Thank you very much for your fantastic review, we're happy to hear about your experience with the SMART-TRIAL platform. We are especially happy to hear about your positive experience with our customer service, which is a key part of SMART-TRIAL.

The software was easy to learn, to set up, to use, and is was also easy to export the data.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

It is easy to use, even for beginners in science. The senior researcher can write clarifications in the form questions and can also make restrictions in the forms so that the data will be entered correctly. This reduces the risk of human error during data collection. It was also easy to follow the progress.

Cons

There were some compatibility problems in some of the web-browsers. I think that Mozilla Firefox worked best.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review! Very good to hear. Compatibility problems the specific issues this reviewer experienced were solved very quickly. SMART-TRIAL does conduct validation testing for each release in multiple browsers, which is designed to catch any issues.

My overall experience with SMART-TRIAL is very good. I can totally recommend it.

Ease of use and straightforwardness in setup and usage. eCRF setup is very easy to handle and doesn't need much assistance from the software owners. This is compared to other eCRF softwares a big plus. Customer service is quick and helpful. Great community and constant improvements.

Cons

Data Format after export can be improved

Easy to use and very cost-efficient

Reviewed 6 years ago

I was scouting for an EDC software online when I stumbled on to SMART-TRIAL, brilliant software that helped me a lot during my studies. They have some features that suited me as I was traveling a lot during my studies, f.e. being able to access it anywhere on my phone or my tablet. Since I wasn't alone working on my project the function of being able to collaborate the study between other students was great!

Pros

I liked most of their functionalities, especially since I'm not a computer genius I really needed something easy to use.

Cons

This is one of my first software to use, so I can't compare this software to any other.

It was a very intuitive system even for someone using data management for the first time.

Reviewed 4 years ago

It was a good introduction to using a data management system. The service from the company was also very helpful concerning set up, use, and validation of the system.

Pros

The format is large and easy to read and use. It was convenient having someone else set up the system for us instead of having to do it ourselves. Jon always replied to our emails and made changes to the set up very quickly.

Cons

It was slow (this might have already been improved). There were items that could not be customized for our specific use concerning decimal points.

User friendly interface to subjects. Time consuming to set up multiple languages

Reviewed 4 years ago

possibility to perform the studies

Pros

the flexibility and quick response from the support side. The openness for discussion different solutions

Cons

in setting up questionnaires, it was time consuming reviewing the different language options, to get an overview. that subjects need an email for completing the questionnaires.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review. We appreciate the feedback. It's true, that it can be very time consuming ensuring that translations for multiple langauges are in order. This is something that's difficult to change, but we know that there are still ways to improve this. And yes, for now we do require an email or mobile number to send out a questionnaire, as this is one of the few ways we can use to validate one's idendity and responses to the questions to ensure traceability.

Study Coordinator.

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Easy to use. I can not come up with any other suggestions. I do not know how it is integration with other apps working.

Cons

I think the system should ask for the vistit date when the study patient was at site, instead of the date you open the eCRF. How to set the time is not a good way. You should be able to write it down with numbers instead of the " stupid " clock.
