Durham, North Carolina, July 12th, 2022 – Pro-ficiency announces the acquisition of all life sciences intellectual property and the associated team of Fugitive Labs, a full-service nationwide product development firm. This acquisition significantly increases Pro-ficiency’s platform and product development capabilities, which will serve to increase the organization’s competitive advantage in clinical trials performance management. The expanded development team will foster Pro-ficiency’s ability to deliver on a robust development pipeline for years to come.
“The Fugitive team is an incredible addition for us,” said Pro-ficiency CEO, Michael Raymer. “It’s rare to find a product team that understands clinical trials and also develops beautiful, simple, and highly functional user experiences. To have the Fugitive team fully dedicated to innovation within Pro-ficiency is going to keep us lightyears ahead of others in our space.”
The Fugitive Labs team is led by Erik Guffrey, Fugitive Labs CEO, now Pro-ficiency’s Chief Technology Officer. Mr. Guffrey brings a team of product developers with him to focus on building and enhancing the Pro-ficiency suite of products and services. One notable member of the team is Grant Fowler, co-founder of Fugitive, joining Pro-ficiency as Senior Vice President of Engineering. Having over 9 years of experience working alongside Erik at Fugitive, his insight will prove invaluable in facilitating a smooth integration of new features into Pro-ficiency’s platform.
“What Pro-ficiency is doing to evolve performance in clinical trials is truly unique and exciting,” said Erik Guffrey, Pro-ficiency’s new Chief Technology Officer. “This team (at Pro-ficiency) is relentless about thinking differently to address problems for study teams and learners at the site. Having the resources, creative support and collaborative approach with a leadership team like this is a dream situation for any developer. We can make magic happen.”
Included in the acquisition of Fugitive Labs is a collection of ready-made platforms built specifically for clinical trial use and tested with major CROs and sponsors.
The acquisition marks the first for Pro-ficiency since their funding by NovaQuest Private Equity in 2021. Rollout plans for the acquired platforms and newly developed services will be announced in future press releases.
