How to start A collaboration with a CRO
Genevia Technologies is a bioinformatics consulting company that offers data analysis as a service for industry and academia. We at Genevia were ourselves until recently acquiring services from outside professionals and learned that the start of the process is especially challenging. We were faced with questions like: how to contact the right companies, how to get your message to the right people, and how to avoid receiving quotes for services that you may not need.
In the process, we realized that discussion is the key to success. We had a talk over Skype or a face-to-face with each potential service provider and described our wishes to them. They were all professionals in their field and very motivated to help us. We learnt that a 30 minute Skype call with each service provider taught us much more than we would ever have learned in the same time from information on websites. What happened to our fear that the service providers would try to sell us more than we actually wanted? It wasn’t a problem at all. The service provider would find only the set of services that best suited our needs. Discussion was eventually the ’walk’ that we took together in order to achieve this goal.
Nowadays people prefer to have long-term collaboration relationships rather than short fixed-priced projects. Therefore it is in each seller’s and buyer’s interest to begin an open discussion and work together to plan what is most beneficial to start with. Further down the line it is easier to expand the collaboration when both the seller and the buyer have a better idea of what to expect.
