AlliancePharma Announces Launch of Professional Services Quoting Application, PSQuote from CLD Partners

Apr 29, 2022 3:57:19 PM / by Alliance Pharma


 April 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- This week, AlliancePharma (Malvern, PA) announced their go-live of PSQuote together with CLD Partners (Front Royal, VA). PSQuote is a newly developed professional services quoting application built on the Salesforce platform (PSQuote is a wholly-owned division of CLD Partners). AlliancePharma will use the tool to enhance and elevate their sales cycle, delivering a better customer sales experience--from quote to service delivery. CLD Partners has engaged with AlliancePharma since June 2021, for FinancialForce implementation services, and this new deployment is the next step in a growing business relationship.

AlliancePharma is a contract research organization (CRO) specializing in drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics (DMPK) and bioanalytical services for both small and large molecules. They serve clients throughout the development lifecycle, from pre-clinical/clinical trials to market entry. AlliancePharma works closely with their clients, allowing full access to data, creating strong partnerships and walks, side-by-side, with them through their project development.

Over the years, CLD Partners has built many custom professional services estimation tools based on the Salesforce platform, including for many large enterprises. They developed the expertise and experience from responding to a consistent request–how can a client more fully automate their quoting process and bridge the gap between their CRM and PSA (Professional Services Automation) tools.

With PSQuote deployed, AlliancePharma will now leverage the power of the Salesforce platform to centralize and standardize their quoting process, which will fuel their growth as they expand into other regions. Ryan Klein, Senior Director of Business Development and the executive sponsor for the implementation, said, "PSQuote is the right tool at the right time. We are aggressively scaling our organization to achieve growth goals over the next several years, and getting the right tools in place is key. We know PSQuote is going to grow with us, and we're grateful for CLD Partners' excellent implementation work."

CLD Partners CEO, Steve Clune, who originally designed PSQuote, sees this as a further step in CLD offering specific expertise to the CRO space. "Contract Research Organizations have unique challenges in transforming their workflows to a more automated and digital system. Through implementing FinancialForce with multiple CRO clients, including AlliancePharma, we have gained expertise in this space. And now, in deploying PSQuote, we're enhancing our solution offering to these organizations. I am excited to grow our practice for CROs even more."

PSQuote is a native Salesforce application available on the AppExchange

> University of Wisconsin Land O’Lakes DMPK Conference

Sep 6, 2019 10:00:00 AM / by Alliance Pharma posted in Pharmaceuticals, Conferences, DMPK



University of Wisconsin Land O’Lakes DMPK ConferenceThe Land O’Lakes conference series is one of the longest running and most revered teaching conferences in the pharmaceutical industry. Over the last two decades, the Land O’Lakes conferences have been developed by the division of pharmacy professional development within the school of pharmacy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and have an impeccable reputation within the pharmaceutical industry for shedding light on cutting edge topics, bringing in knowledgeable experts and having an intimate setting which lends itself to some fantastic networking opportunities. 

We at Alliance Pharma are pleased to announce that we will be attending the 22nd annual Land O’Lakes conference on Drug Metabolism and Applied Pharmacokinetics on September 9th thru September 12th in Madison, Wisconsin. We are excited and eager to hear from industry leaders on the new advances in drug delivery, action and metabolism. This years’ meeting is titled ‘Found in Translation: Adaptive DMPK Strategies’, and will include topics focused on target mediated drug disposition (TMDD), endogenous biomarkers and more.

Target mediated drug disposition requires that we think outside the box in terms of drug distribution and elimination from the body. TMDD often exhibits nonlinear pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics due to the drugs unusually high affinity to a binding site.

Endogenous biomarker research, particularly in the drug transporter area, continues to rapidly evolve. Our biomarker team at Alliance is a highly experienced team with significant expertise in biomarker method development and analysis, yet we are always eager to learn more!

If you’re going to the conference and would like to meet with us, please contact Ryan Klein at or 919-801-3146.
