3 reasons for cooperation
3 reasons for cooperation


At DATAN, you can expect an exceptional customer experience through personalized service and open, honest and proactive communication - before, during and at the end of a study. Our clients have a single point of contact for the entire duration of the project.

During a study, a very close exchange of information between our biostatisticians and the client's departments is essential in order to achieve a high level of quality and efficiency and to keep everyone involved up to date.

After completing a study, feedback from our customers is very important to us in order to find out how we can improve cooperation and achieve a sustainable customer relationship.

Project experience

Studies are our passion.

The DATAN teams have extensive project experience at an international level. We work on projects for a broad spectrum of customers and a wide variety of issues and can quickly adapt to new projects and customers.

We know the standard processes in large pharmaceutical companies and bring this experience to your project. Our employees are familiar with many different infrastructures, both in technical and organizational terms. Thanks to our many years of experience, we know what is important in our customers' projects and can therefore play our part in the project's success.

Our quality principles

We invest in the continuous training and development of our employees

All employees keep their specialist knowledge up to date with internal training courses and participation in further training and congresses. Industry-standard specialist knowledge, such as up-to-date GCP knowledge, is documented by certificates. SAS® and R knowledge is systematically expanded.

We use the most up-to-date and secure IT systems

Our IT landscape and the security products we use are - as far as possible - "Made in Germany". All systems are regularly put to the test and brought up to date. Our employees are made aware of information security through regular training. Our IT is monitored by an external data protection officer.

Our processes are continuously optimized

The permanent optimization of our processes is part of our corporate culture. Mistakes can also happen. We accept this and deal with them constructively and appreciatively. This is because they provide us with information, for example about weak points in the process or possible new solutions. We get to the bottom of the cause together and ensure that the same error does not occur again. If a proposed solution results in a measurable improvement, it becomes the new standard. Our processes are documented in SOPs and our programming complies with industry standards.

We aim to provide "correct" results

Our efforts focus on validating the tables, lists and graphics we produce and checking the underlying data. Compliance with the dual control principle is mandatory: work results are only made available to our customers after approval.
