Leading Industry Analyst Firm Names IntraLinks as "Cool Vendor" in Life

NEW YORK, April 21 /CNW/ - IntraLinks, the leading provider of critical information exchange solutions, today announced that it has been named to Gartner's "Cool Vendors in Life Sciences, 2010" report. IntraLinks is an innovator in Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions that address the time- and accuracy-sensitive document sharing, communication and collaboration needs of the life sciences industry. Companies included in Gartner's Cool Vendors reports offer technologies that are considered innovative, impactful and intriguing.

In the Gartner report, authored by analysts Steven Lefebure and Dale Hagemeyer, it states that "despite some pockets of relative technological sophistication, life science companies still have some pockets of manual processes relating to information flows. By automating these with technology, they can increase operating results, efficiency and regulatory compliance at the same time".

IntraLinks' secure document sharing, cloud-based platform provides the ideal solution to life science companies that still use manual processes because it covers the needs of the industry as related to site recruitment, study start-up, safety document distribution and clinical alliance management. IntraLinks' platform helps pharmaceutical clinical and safety teams achieve greater efficiencies, improve regulatory compliance and reduce risk.

"It's an honor to be named by Gartner in the life sciences cool vendor report and it's also gratifying to see that IntraLinks meets the industry needs outlined by the analysts," said Alison Shurell, VP, product marketing, IntraLinks. "Pharmaceutical companies are actively looking for alternative solutions to the inefficient, unsecure paper-based methods often used to exchange documents and communicate with investigators during clinical trials.

By moving processes online with IntraLinks, clients not only automate workflow and improve efficiency, they add a layer of unmatched security and control to the process. We believe that Gartner's recognition is further affirmation of our ongoing commitment to the life sciences industry, which is illustrated by the top 10 global pharmaceutical companies, top 10 global clinical research organizations (CROs) and top 10 biotechs in the world all using IntraLinks."
