November 14, 2007 / Research Triangle Park, NC — Clinipace, a clinical research software company based in the Research Triangle Park, has been named a finalist for the 2007 NCTA 21 Awards.

Clinipace, recent recipient of the 2007 Triangle Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” award, has been receiving a good deal of accolades this year due to its progressive approach to the clinical research software market.

Clinipace is making headway in the market by providing a more efficient, single-platform, clinical workflow engine that eliminates unnecessary infrastructure, such as other clinical systems and in some cases, service providers. Clinipace’s innovative workflow approach not only enables its clients to address the very specific needs of their research project, but it enables Clinipace to run a more efficient operation — savings that Clinipace passes on to their customers.

Clinipace believes this efficiency has opened up new markets that have been underserved in the past.

Jeff Williams, CEO of Clinipace, explains: “Our platform and our team is robust enough to support a large Phase III randomized controlled trial conducted by an industry client, but our model also enables us to support even an individual academic investigator with a small NIH grant. We are providing enterprise level products and services to even the smallest customers at a price they can live with.”

“The NCTA’s annual awards are among the most esteemed honors in the state and it is a great compliment to have our hard work recognized. We are delighted to be selected as one of the most innovative and successful technology companies in 2007,” comments Jeff Williams, CEO of Clinipace.

The NCTA 21 Awards are recognized as North Carolina’s largest and most prestigious awards devoted to promoting and celebrating innovation and high-tech excellence in North Carolina. This annual showcase honors 21 companies and individuals who represent the best and brightest in technology and business and have demonstrated outstanding leadership and innovation. The awards are grouped in five categories: Technology Industry Awards, Stage of Development Awards, Functional Awards, Leadership Awards and Excellence Awards. Each year, NCTA also presents an Outstanding Achievement Award to an individual who has demonstrated a career-long commitment to the advancement of the technology industry in North Carolina.

Winners will be recognized at the annual awards gala on the evening of Thursday, Nov. 15 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Cary, N.C. The theme for this year’s event is “A Blockbuster Year” and will be attended by more than 400 executives and leaders from across the state.
