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

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

Conduit streamlines data entry, submission validation, project review and auditability of any form and workflow in one package.

One system for all approvals

From human ethics to conflicts of interest, Conduit is used to strengthen goverance organisation wide.

Timely access for all stakeholders

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

Full auditability and version control

Form submissions are snapshotted and version controlled, facilitating point in time history and accountability.

Enhance professionalism and confidence

Modern user experience and design presents your organisation in a professional, robust manner.

Eliminate repetitive form data entry and review

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

Make timely management decisions and ensure compliance through effective automation and notifications

SOP's and procedures

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

Group/Portfolio based approvals

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

Credentialing and training

Techniques(skills) and competency assessment is stored against each member and automatically linked to applications

Strengthen governance and promote accountability without increasing admin burden

Electronic Sign off's

Certain approvals require project members to acknowledge approval conditions. The in-application signoff tools in Conduit ensure complete compliance with visibility and escalation notifications 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 researchers

  • 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 & IRBs

  • 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 electronic approvals
  • Manage conflicts of interest
  • Digital meeting agendas, minutes and official comments

For management

  • Reduce approval timelines without sacrificing oversight
  • Human, Animal, Integrity, COI in one system
  • Conduit will support organisational policies
  • Finally enable a deep search across project approvals
  • Audit capabilities to minimise risk and increase governance
  • Project version history 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.

  • Real-time visibility over skills and competencies
  • 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
