Biotech Digital Operations. Rightsized.

"Building it while flying it" can be done well. Basis Framework and Zero IT Headcount services enable the rightsizing of biotech IT and its application across your organization. By following a well-considered plan and aligning effort with your objectives, we provide capability that is both agile and extremely resource-efficient.


Zero IT Headcount

Digital Operations (IT and Informatics) is at its best when it supports company objectives by providing optionality with efficiency.


While the tools available are known, it’s in their informed selection, timely application, and responsive support that we find and deliver material value.



How Virtual Are You?

The landscape has changed for biotech. Market, financing and staffing pressures have us hyper-focused on milestones, optionality and staying lean. Outsourcing and remote work have become the new normal for G&A and R&D. Consequently, reliance on IT has increased with cloud management, collaboration tools, data transfer, cybersecurity and remote support now top priorities for all biotech companies. 


The breadth and depth of knowledge required to effectively deliver in Biotech Digital Operations today does not reside in any one or two individuals. How do you meet these needs with minimal headcount? Leveraging a Biotech Digital Operations CRO with a collection of experienced resources makes more sense today than ever before.
