The Prelude Story

Founded in 2003, our founders created Prelude from the ground up as a new type of electronic data capture (EDC) system – that is, with the end-user in mind while still being able to withstand the most extreme scrutiny for data, accuracy, and speed.


Over the last 20+ years, we’ve grown from a small team to a hard-working group of software engineers, customer success managers, information technologists, and professionals in sales, marketing, and finance.

Prelude’s CEO, Tommy Jackson, understands the benefit of bringing valuable, life-saving products to market more quickly. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your clinical trial management system or explore new options, Prelude’s dedicated team will provide answers, solutions, and assistance to help you meet your goals.
