The Challenge

Predict the unpredictable in increasingly complex trials

Highly unpredictable demand translates into a lot of uncertainty and high costs to cover the worst case. Factors such as drop-out rate, enrollment speed and sites/countries involved can change rapidly. Shorter shelf live, expensive comparators and limited production capacity make it even more complicated to have a robust supply strategy.

Managing changes in this complex situation while controlling the risk of patient not receiving their medication on time can be a stressful challenge for clinical supply teams.

The Solution

Design, Plan and Monitor
Clinical Trial Supply

The N-SIDE Supply App ensures you have the best strategy to deliver medications to patient on time while reducing drug waste and minimizing costs. 

Get support for strategic to operational decisions using advanced simulation and optimization technologies. With N-SIDE Supply App design, plan, and monitor your clinical trial with ease – no more firefighting!


Increase early collaboration between clinical and supply teams. Quantify the impact  of trial design choices and engage in fact-based decision making.


Prepare for uncertainty. Safely supply your trial using risk-based optimization results (production planning, IRT set-up and depot management).


Align your supply strategy with the current trial reality with IRT data integration and updated study assumptions. Monitoring dashboards focus your attention where decisions need to be taken.

Have an optimized supply strategy that you can trust!

  • Accurately model your trial from simple to complex designs including titrations, weight-based dispensing, cohorts, cross-overs …
  • Ensure a standard quality approach with automated consistency checks and in-app review process
  • Reliably assess the risk in your trial, and automatically generate your optimal supply strategy (IRT settings, overage level, depot management,…)
  •  Keep traceability of decisions and track the impact of changes and decisions over the trial

N-SIDE has experience now optimizing clinical trial supply worldwide for more than 15 years!
