From NTM to Cayuse, a New Journey Begins!

February 19, 2019

I am thrilled to announce that NTM has been acquired by Cayuse, a respected leader in the research enterprise industry providing an ecosystem of research administration solutions for universities, hospitals, and research organizations.

The seeds for this incredible event were sown in the last eSirius Users Group when our customers posed the question about the NTM succession plan. Since then we’ve gone through a whirlwind of sustained growth and most recently were selected by Pharma Outlook magazine as a top 10 enterprise solution provider in the Life Sciences industry.

NTM has reached a point in its growth where it became evident, we needed to seek out investment partners to help us achieve new heights and continue to expand our enterprise solutions offering. When the Cayuse opportunity presented itself, it became quickly apparent to me that this is the closest we will get to an ideal situation:

  1. Cayuse and NTM products are complementary and cover the entire Research Administration, Research Compliance, and Animal Research Facility with a few gaps to fill.
  2. Cayuse thrives to continually achieve the highest levels of successful customer experiences and employee satisfaction and happiness.
  3. Cayuse’s access to resources, knowledge and capital, will make our shared vision of providing the most complete research administration and compliance solutions in the industry quite achievable.

In reflecting back on the last 30 years, I feel fortunate to have earned our customers’ trust and I am eternally thankful to all those who helped, advised, and in many cases got involved in the planning and development of the solutions that shaped our product offerings and helped our business reach this milestone.

I am most grateful to our expert and dedicated NTM team, many of whom have been with the company for over 15 years. They are the cornerstone on which our excellent reputation for software solutions, professional services and customer support was built. Now that the entire team is part of the Cayuse family, I am excited to see how we will shape our future together.

In my new role as VP of Compliance and Facilities Solutions, I will have the single focus to help in the development and integration of Cayuse new generation of products to deliver an un-matched research system administration ecosystem centered around usability, enhanced customer experience, quality and performance. 

The journey continues. The legacy we built together will carry forward into the future…
