Achieving Scalability and Reducing Costs with an FSP Model

  • Tuesday, June 23, 2020

The reasons to adopt an FSP model have never been more apparent than they are today. The benefits have been proven: enhanced productivity, operational ease-of-use, reduction of risk, simplified financial management, accelerated timelines and more. In addition to these measurable metrics, the FSP model creates a culture of trust, emphasizing open communication, transparency, proactive responsibility, and leadership. It also enables collaboration beyond a traditional outsourcing model, as skilled, embedded staff are heavily invested in successful outcomes.

For more than a decade, Synteract has been providing functional support services to clients across the United States and Europe. Our FSP model offers experienced, dedicated staff with leading industry expertise to deliver clinical studies according to a plan. Join Theo Erasmus, Vice President of Biometrics FSP, and Alex Brink, Executive Director of Biometrics, for our upcoming webinar, Achieving Scalability and Reducing Costs with an FSP Model, on June 23, 2020.

Discover why organizations from small bio-techs to global pharmas have used the FSP model to achieve creative, customized solutions that drive their success.
