The Accel2R Story

Experis has partnered with our life sciences and pharma clients since 1982. In this 39 years, we have worked with our clients to create and implement creative technologies to reduce the clinical trial process time and increase time to market. We have witnessed and supported the use of SAS® as an important technology in all phases a clinical trial. As a trusted SAS® partner, we are active sponsors and speakers in SAS® Global Forum as well as local SAS® user groups.

In 2005, we added Learning and Training capabilities into our solutions portfolio. This coincided with the rapid increase in the number of technologies and products that were available to an organization. We recognized that workforce enablement was just as important as a successful project or program delivery. We also witnessed the rise of open-source technologies and how they can exist in the clinical technology stack. Even with the strict FDA compliance regulations, our clients were starting to explore and identify how R could be leveraged. The challenge at the time was that open-source technologies (R and Python) were new to the industry and clients needed to start to figure out how and if these were viable. In 2017, Experis started investing in R and working with our clients to understand how R could be used. The entire industry had been built with SAS®. Our SAS® experts with 20+ years of clinical specific industry domain knowledge were trying to learn and work with R.

The Experis Innovation Center was established in 2018 with the goal of generating new ideas and ways of working. We started evaluating creative thinking methodologies, behavior science, and learning science with a goal of how we can accelerate or improve the learning process. With our clients evaluating open-source technologies and our large team of clinical programmers, statisticians, and statistical programmers, we realized with had a perfect opportunity to apply new thinking to a very current problem. In 2020, we released the Accel2R accelerated learning program which uses a variety of new learning approaches designed to help life sciences organizations rapidly move to R. We continue to improve and add to the product with new curriculum updates, new learning activities, and new features.
