An End-to-End eClinical Data Management Platform

Supporting Preclinical to Post-Market Studies

Prelude makes electronic case report forms (eCRFs) look and feel like paper, making the data collection process seamless. Our unique architecture enables users to design forms that fit their specific study needs rather than adjusting their processes to accommodate the limitations of their system.


Prelude’s electronic data capture (EDC) system is a web-based application designed for clinical trial data collection while maintaining regulatory compliance.


Prelude’s ePRO mobile app enables trial participants to input data directly into our EDC. Eliminate the need for an on-site visit and never miss another data point.

“One database for everything – regulatory, EDC, Invoicing, etc. Plus, it sends notifications of queries!”

“All EDCs are intimidating for a newbie, but Prelude EDC has one of the lowest learning curves of commercial EDC products.”

“The database overall is just lovely – innovative, convenient, and way more advanced and efficient than I am used to as a coordinator.”

Prelude Becomes an Extension of Your Team

Our Customer Success Managers (CSMs) provide support ranging from hands-on training to complete study build and maintenance. When you need help, reach out to your dedicated CSM – not a call center.
