CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --NextDocs, the global leader
in compliance solutions for the life sciences industry, today demonstrated how
its newly launched Trial Exchange solution combined with Windows 8 addresses
the critical needs of life sciences companies in securely and efficiently
managing clinical trials in today's highly global and mobile operating

Trial Exchange, the newest product available on the NextDocs platform,
provides an easy-to-use interface for investigators and site staff to access
and contribute essential documents for clinical trials. The documents and
workflows can then be managed within the NextDocs eTMF solution. NextDocs
Trial Exchange can be accessed through the web browser or through a native
Windows 8 app.

In an online demonstration, Microsoft and NextDocs showed how the combination
of Trial Exchange and Windows 8 addresses the need for greater mobility,
security, compliance and collaboration in clinical trial management.

"We live in an ever more global, mobile and connected world that can pose many
business challenges – but also presents opportunities. The native Windows 8
app for Trial Exchange allows life sciences professionals to readily access
and contribute documents from any device anywhere in the world. It makes
clinical trial document management solutions easy-to-use without sacrificing
compliance, security or mobility," said Matt Walz, Chief Technology Officer at

The proliferation of mobile devices and tablets presents new compliance and
security challenges for life sciences companies. Switching back and forth
between unintegrated devices also tends to lower productivity and increase
costs. These problems can magnify when companies start to bring external
partners into the clinical trial process.

Trial Exchange and Windows 8 can solve these issues. The solutions allow
trial site staff to contribute documents to an established eTMF work stream,
receive and complete tasks generated by the sponsor, view document statuses,
and retrieve documents on demand – all within the industry standard SharePoint
environment. Unlike many existing clinical portals, Trial Exchange plugs
directly into the eTMF without additional routing, thus ensuring sponsor/CRO
quality and document management processes in clinical site documents.

The Microsoft and NextDocs demonstration is available via a webinar at The two companies will also demonstrate the solution live
at the ShareFEST conference in Philadelphia in April 2013. To register for
