About Trial By Fire Solutions

Makers of SimpleTrials and SimpleCTMS

Trial By Fire Solutions is an eClinical software company with a focus on clinical trial management systems (CTMS).  With many years of experience on the front lines of clinical trial management, we have a passion for innovating web-based applications to improve planning, execution and tracking of clinical trials.

Trial By Fire Solutions, founded in 2008, is a privately-held California company.  Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer, Nancy Cecchettini, has over 20 years of industry experience across multiple therapeutic areas in the biopharmaceutical and device industries. She has experience in Phase I-IV trials and has played key roles as Clinical Trial Manager, Regional Project Manager, Global Lead CRA, CRA, Co-Monitor, Auditor, and Project Coordinator. Previously, she ran a successful, independent, clinical consulting practice for Bay Area clients.  Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Jon Cecchettini, has over 20 years of software development and information technology experience. His web application expertise is based on building secure, scalable and intuitive products for a multitude of Silicon Valley startups.  Our team, all based in the US, brings a diverse set of experience and perspective from many aspects of clinical study management and information technology. 

The Trial By Fire Solutions Team has been building expertise in clinical trial management systems with a diverse, global clientele since the release of SimpleCTMS in 2010.  We have drawn upon that in-depth experience, along with our mission to provide affordable and effective eClinical solutions to teams of all sizes, to develop and release SimpleTrials in 2016.  We are proud to offer the first on-demand CTMS option to sponsors, CROs, sites and other clinical stakeholders, with a simple pricing and subscription model, all available directly from our website.



We are passionate about reducing cost and improving the efficiency of bringing bio/pharma/device products to market for people in need. We are committed to donating resources to the efforts of philanthropic health-care, biotechnology, pharmaceutical and device-based organizations, especially those involved in clinical trials.

If you represent a philanthropic and/or non-profit organization (e.g. managing a non-profit clinical trial), please contact us to see how we can help you.
