Feasibilities can be tricky. Our Feasibility Team completes the feasibility questionnaire with you by incorporating your sites‘ strengths thus resulting in more study awards.

Contract Negotiation

SIGAL SMS takes over the contract and budget negotiations with the sponsor/CRO. This has a positive impact on the start-up, saving time and costs for all parties involved.

Recruitment Strategy

A recruitment strategy for the study or for each individual site is developed by our Recruitment Specialist. This is revised throughout the trial as needed.

A Project Manager is appointed to each project at SIGAL SMS. They act as the single point of contact for sponsors/CROs and sites to ensure a timely start-up, which can often be a source of headache.

Project Management

The Project Manager helps in the proactive identification and resolution of operational issues, and enables the smooth running of the clinical trial. Monthly calls with the sponsor/CRO help ensure that any issues arising from the sponsor/CRO or the site are communicated immadiately.

Billing with the sponsor/CRO takes place centrally at SIGAL SMS. Invoicing for the individual visits, for example, is not required by the site.
