Using PharmaProSource® results in considerable cost savings because we give you the flexibility to choose only the services you need. Our flexibility and agility are unmatched by large CROs. You may opt for turnkey biostatistics and programming solutions in some cases, while in other situations, you may need ad-hoc computer systems validation for a system upgrade while your staff is busy working on another project.  It’s your call.

When you need SAS® programmers, you save even more when your team is augmented using our off-site resources who have their own copy of SAS for program development.  Using this model, your in-house staff directly manages your projects while using our contract resources for the routine programming.  We use your SOPs, specifications, naming conventions and programming style guidelines to develop SAS programs on our PCs with our version of SAS (9.1.3 or 9.2) in our offices. Your in-house team only needs to execute the final production programs.

You may have a full complement of SAS programmers, but need a managing statistician or a senior SAS programmer to keep a project on track. Or you may need an experienced IT professional to perform due diligence on an emerging technology. PharmaProSourceprovides these resources.

When you work with PharmaProSource, you select the services you need based on your project requirements. PharmaProSource draws on a broad resource base that is structured specifically to provide value without adding expensive layers of management. Our low overhead means significantly lower rates for you—in many cases you save up to 50% when compared to conventional CRO rates.
