Workflow efficiency and reliability for researchers, administrators and your committees!

Research approvals involve large, cumbersome static forms often submitted via email or paper. This leads to significant inefficiency, increased overheads and many other pain-points across the organisation.

Conduit streamlines data entry, submission validation, project review and auditability of any form.

One system for all approvals

From human ethics to the defence trade controls act, Conduit is used to strengthen goverance organisation wide.

Timely access for all stakeholders

Intuitive, self service tools empower all stakeholders to access up to date project information in real-time.

Full auditability and version control

Form submissions are snappshoted and version controlled, faciliating point in time history and accountability.

No more paper

Web based accessibility for contemporary and distributed working environments.

Eliminate repetitive form data entry

Conduit exists to reduce administration burden and review times for research. Reuse submission information through organisation, portfolio and project group level information hierarchies.

Immediate response

Immediately respond and notify project members to changes of organisation level approvals through dynamically linked information

SOP's and procedures

Digitally record SOP's and procedures in a single, well versioned platform

Group/Portfolio based approvals

Obtain a project group (portfolio) approvals that are applicable to across projects (Hazardous chemicals, OGTR, risk assessments)

Credentialling

Techniques(skills) and corresponding competency assessment is stored against each member

Strengthen governance and promote accountability without increasing admin burden

Project Sign off's

Certain approvals require project members to acknowledge approval conditions. The in-application signoff tools in Conduit ensure complete visibility over member signoff status.

Point in time versioning

If ever there is a need for investigation, users can go back to any point in time to see what the state of a form was and what the conditions of it's approval were.

High priority notifications

Critical notifications arising from incidents like SAE's on a clinical trial can notified via SMS (for example) according to your policies.

Process driven and highly interoperable

For project members

  • Avoid road blocks and approval delays
  • Reduce complexity and increase visibility across your entire portfolio
  • Eliminate form data re-entry
  • Clearly articulated forms and validation reduces submission knockbacks
  • Track the status and feedback of project submissions online

For committees

  • Dramatically reduce review time with tracked changes view
  • Configurable submission declarations
  • Version control and point in time form history
  • Real-time informal comments enables virtual meetings
  • Streamline review process and approval letters
  • Digital meeting agendas, minutes and official comments

For management

  • Reduce approval timelines without sacrificing oversight
  • Conduit will support organisational policies
  • Finally enable a deep search across project approvals
  • Audit capabilities to minimise risk and increase goverance
  • Project version snapshotting to support disputes
  • Control organisation wide SOPs and approvals
  • Complete visibility over project startup time/approval KPIs
Seamless integration

Dynamic, automated integration with peripheral systems directly promotes efficiency and dramatically improves quality of submissions

Robust and reliable

whole of organisation data integrity and searchability are finally achievable

Consistent and correct

Integrations with third party systems and intuitive form validation reduces manual data entry and opportunity for error

Configurable notifications

Configurable in-app, email or SMS notifications and escalation pathways for key events and processes

Form skip logic

Form UI is modern, mobile friendly and behaves intuitively. Form skip logic drives efficiency and reduces complication.

Track skills and assess competencies organisation wide

Users skills, training and competencies are tracked against their profile. Examples are fire training, GCP training, drivers license or sophisticated animal surgery techniques. Techniques required for a project or procedure can be set by administrators and validated across approvals.

  • Realtime visibilty over skills and comptencies
  • Assign mandatory skills to SOP's and procedures
  • Configure competency levels for each technique
  • Techniques are assigned to user profiles and assessed
  • Expiry dates and notifications alert on expiry
  • API sync with leading HR or learning management systems
