This new brand strategy brings an enhanced visual identity to market as well as sharpened product positioning, a new web site, messaging and corporate collateral.
As part of its new branding commitment ERT has introduced a new platform of products and services in the clinical trials arena to its customers worldwide. This consists of four sub-brands for ERT’s products and services: Cardiac Safety Solutions; EDC Solutions; ePRO Solutions and ERT Clinical Research Consulting Group. Cardiac Safety, EDC and ePRO Solutions are founded upon the company’s innovative technology platform – EXPERT™.
EXPERT™ is a robust, secure and validated clinical-research workflow-processing system that powers centralized electronic data collection, data management and information exchange. All of ERT’s solutions are supported by cross-functional teams operating within its SOP-driven, Project Assurance methodology that delivers exceptional performance metrics and customer satisfaction.
