GOLD (Global On-line Data) announcement
On 1st March 2011 we will be officially launching the EAS GOLD system (Global On-Line Data) to our clients. This will provide a huge benefit to clients who will be given access to a file share area – this will allow regular checks on study progress. Our clients will also be notified when updated files are available.
Positive feedback has been received so far from clients who are pleased for a number of reasons; mainly that data will be available on-line in a file share area, and that they will always be notified when new data is available.
Over the next few weeks clients will be issued with secure links to access their file share area. This will allow access to data for both current studies and new studies beginning in Spring. A formal announcement will be issued on 1st March 2011.
