Two gutsy, visionary entrepreneurs set their sights on solving the daily pains experienced by principal investigators and research coordinators everywhere when managing large life science research studies: poor participant recruitment, inefficient participant tracking systems, and lack of measurable engagement.
A combination of administrative headaches, time-consuming scheduling, and recruitment worries plagues every life science research effort. Researchers are faced with too-expensive, cumbersome software aimed at big companies with big pockets, causing research teams to fall back on a messy, make-do patchwork of spreadsheets, sticky notes, word processors, and calendars.
