March 20, 2012, Research Triangle Park, N.C. – Copernicus Group IRB (CGIRB), a leading independent institutional review board, today announced the release of CGIRB Connexus® 2.0.
Connexus, CGIRB’s award-winning e-document management system, is utilized by sponsors, CROs and sites to manage every phase of the IRB review process. Connexus 2.0 is a complete upgrade to the system’s look and feel, offering a cleaner, faster and more intuitive experience, while still giving users the ability to track submissions, access an electronic file cabinet of all IRB documents and receive instant notification when a submission is complete.
“When it was originally released, Connexus created a major shift in the IRB industry,” said Jennifer Sodrel, CGIRB’s Director, Information Management. “Being a company focused on quality and innovation, we constantly look for ways to improve and enhance our systems. Our goal with the 2.0 release was to make Connexus an even more valuable tool for our clients.
“With Connexus 2.0, we’ve updated the look of the user interface, as well as reworking elements to make it simpler to use and more intuitive. We took care to make sure users of the original Connexus will be able to transition to the new version very easily.”
New features in Connexus 2.0 include:
