By Editorial Team on May 22, 2024


Loyal, a dedicated team focused on improving the health and longevity of dogs worldwide, was seeking an Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system to collect data on their clinical study phase drugs intended to help dogs live longer and stay healthier as they age. In their quest to find the right EDC solution, Loyal sought recommendations from industry peers and experts who led them to Prelude, the leading EDC in animal health with tools tailored to their animal health studies.  


Upon selecting Prelude EDC as their data management solution, Loyal found a comprehensive platform that met their data collection requirements. These requirements included scalability, subject and site level data management, separate databases (one for testing and training and another for live data), and central monitoring. Prelude EDC’s customizable and scalable nature allowed Loyal to tailor the platform to their unique study protocols and even add their unique brand personality to the study database. This flexibility enabled them to efficiently capture and manage data related to canine drug development projects. Additionally, Prelude EDC’s intuitive interface and dedicated support facilitated quick adoption by Loyal’s team, ensuring seamless integration into their research workflows. As a result, Loyal effectively leveraged Prelude EDC to streamline their data collection processes and achieve their research objectives with precision.
