The first step in selecting a software is to know your options.  At Karchem Consulting, we are familiar with a wide variety of softwares and have experience working on both sides of the selection and sale process.  While many consulting companies can often be biased towards specific softwares, we consider all options equally based on the client's needs, and know how to get the answers from the vendor to ensure you can make the best decision for your company.  We make sure that a software is chosen considering factors such as configurability, user-friendliness, cloud-based services, phase and growth appropriateness, clinical trial/FDA documentation needs, IT architecture/resources available, and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). 

We take a personalized approach and practice clear and consistent communication while utilizing standard project management techniques.  Our typical process includes of the following, but can be modified to tailor it to your needs:


  • Business analysis and requirements gathering

  • Requirement documentation generation
