Trial participant payment tech firm Greenphire has moved to a new Philadelphia headquarters to add capacity and plans to hire 40 more staff by the end of the year.

The move saw Greephire set up shop at a 18000sqft site in King of Prussia according to a spokeswoman who said the 65 staff employed at the firm's old headquarters in the town will transfer to the new office.

She told Outsourcing-pharma.com that Greenphire is "anticipating growth to over 100 staff by the end of 2015​."

The extra space available at the new office is a vital part of sustaining the firm's recent growth according to company chief experience officer, Jennifer Peters, who said: "It is essential we build capacity to expand our team and suite of technologies and services.​"

"Since the inception of the company, Philadelphia has continuously provided a deep pool of inspired and talented individuals... Our new location will be key in continuing to drive the company forward​" Peters said.

Greenphire came to prominence as one of the firm's involved in Pfizer's REMOTE virtual trial​ where it employed its electronic payment technology.

The study - which sought to gather data from patients electronically - failed to recruit sufficient patients.

However, while the setback prompted Pfizer​ to rethink its approach it served as the launchpad for Greenphire.

In the years since Greenphire has formed a number of collaborations - teaming with Almac​, Merge​ and Ernst & Young​.

Greenphire and peers CFS and Cliniverse are benefiting from increasing sponsor demand for efficiency​ in a trend analogous to the growth of the electronic data capture industry.
