Our Story

SureCTMS Plan Automation

Founded by experts in clinical research operations, we knew all too well the pain points of running clinical trials: Manual processes, spreadsheets, the stacks of documents, the rows of file cabinets, and the never ending mail and email deliveries, coupled with disconnected legacy applications.  We knew there had to be a better way to work faster, easier and smarter, with better results. 

Leveraging years of experience in clinical trials, we set out to develop SterlingBio, which was initially based in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

Word of mouth marketing helped us to gain momentum.  We’ve always focused on responsiveness, quality and close relationships with our clients. Fast forwarding to today, and between SterlingBio CRO projects and our Clinical Applications and Platform, we’ve supported over 600 clinical trials globally.

With headquarters in Reno, Nevada USA, and sales offices in North America, and out technology solution centers in Europe, we serve customers globally in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and clinical research.

 With a heritage built on listening to customers, innovating and delivering amazing software products and solutions, we are continuously evolving and enhancing our offerings to be the best value and user experience available. 

Whether you’re a sponsor, a medical research organization or a clinical investigator site – we empower you to work faster, work easier and work smarter, anytime, anywhere.


We empower clinical teams with services and solutions that automate, streamline and accelerate the delivery of treatments to patients globally.
