Who We Are
Kreara was established in April 2004 as a private limited company with the intention of providing quality services for the clinical research, life sciences and financial markets. Ever since our inception we have grown into one of the most trusted partner for some of the life sciences companies across the globe. The company employs a good mix of statisticians, software engineers and clinical data managers.
Kreara has grown into a leading Clinical Research Organization that specializes in providing data management, statistical and software solutions for the process of clinical drug development. In the due course we have worked with clients from Europe, USA and Japan. We have also developed a state of the art training program that provides us with industry ready resources.
At KREARA (name derived from the Spanish verb crear which means to create) our primary job function is to create value for our customers. An integral part of our genetic structure is to create long-lasting customer partnerships and working with our customers to identify their needs and provide solutions that support their success.
The concept of solutions being driven to address specific customer challenges has been with Kreara since our inception. As we grew from a small team of two people to a much larger group, we never let go of our focus to treat each of our customers as our only customer. Ever since our inception in April 2004, we have a track record of treating each of our customers from the life sciences industry with respect and providing them with three value additions; Cost Effectiveness, Quality and Timeliness. Kreara heavily focus its services on the Clinical Research and life sciences industry and provide data management, software and statistical services to our customers.
Trained Resources, Quality, Timeliness and Cost Effectiveness are four core values that the company thrive to deliver. Our customers from Europe and USA have experienced a cost saving of more than 40% by working with us. We have successfully implemented an “extended organisation” methodology into our clinical and life science practices which ensures that the risks related to the cost and time will be mitigated in a proper fashion. The key to the extended organization is a so-called program office, where the client company and the outsourcing provider collaborate with the help of a finely calibrated monitoring system.
We have a full fledged training program that is designed with the emphasis of data quality and timely delivery of services. Cross-functional training is employed to satiate employees’ desire to learn and acquire new skills. It also equips employees to handle different jobs with relative ease. The customer benefits by developing a talent pool that can handle a variety of jobs. It enjoys greater flexibility in assigning tasks and balancing the workload of employees. This in turn helps Kreara to stay on target and meet customer demands better.
