CenterWatch, established in 1994, is a global benchmarking authority for the clinical trials sector.
The benchmarking report results reflect how more than 3,700 representatives from clinical trial sites around the world rate their clinical research organisation (CRO) relationships and their responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The criteria for benchmarking CROs included:
- Organizational processes
Site respondents were asked to rank the overall reputation of 29 CROs and rate the relative importance of performance-related attributes.
“Strong site, sponsor, and CRO relationships form the essential foundation on which efficient and effective clinical trials are built. We conduct the CenterWatch Global Site Relationship Benchmark Survey as a service to the industry, highlighting behaviors and approaches that are strengthening partnerships and revealing areas that merit improvement. As COVID-19 has put additional strain on relationships of all types, we also requested feedback on partners’ pandemic response in this latest survey,” said Cynthia Carter, President, Market Intelligence and Insights at WCG.
Novotech CEO Dr. John Moller, said we are very pleased to be benchmarked as a top 10 CRO among the world’s leading CROs. Sites are key to our client’s success so being ranked highly by sites for our professionalism, communications, and processes is a major achievement for our global team.

In addition, Novotech has signed 45 Leading Site Partnership agreements over the last 3 years.
