Southampton Clinical Trials Unit (SCTU) is one of eight clinical trials units core funded by Cancer Research UK and receives National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) CTU support funding. SCTU sits within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton, working in partnership with the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust and Southampton Experimental Cancer Medicines Centre, and undertakes non-commercial academic trials. An academic clinical trials unit such as SCTU is a registered organization (within the UKCRC CTU network), usually hosted by a university or NHS Trust, which works in partnership with chief investigators across the UK to develop and run noncommercial trials and ensure the quality of the conduct of these studies.

Previously, the Unit was using largely manual and paper-based processes to run its studies that required multiple touchpoints and logins. As the IT support provided by the University was not specialized in clinical trials software, the SCTU team decided to move to a Software as a Service (SaaS) model to help streamline their clinical trials on a unified platform.
