ZorroSign provides VCS with an unrivaled Electronic Signature platform backed by private permissions based blockchain and Biometric two-factor Security. As a fully Digital Business Platform (DBP) ZorroSign focuses on User Privacy, Data & Document Security, and User Authentication and Validation.

ZorroSign helped VCS to successfully implement a trifold solution to streamline workflow management, digital signature capture, and document management.

VCS uses ZorroSign for 3 Main Objectives

  • Collecting clinical study informed consent documentation and study protocol information
  • Collecting secure, legally binding and authenticated signatures from inter-party legal agreements between Validated Claim Support, sponsor clients and vendors
  • Completing general office documentation like employment agreements and organization policy acknowledgment

ZorroSign Provides a Number of Key Benefits

  • Reduced document consent cycle times
  • Digital signature allows for easy and rapid internal and external document routing, eliminating the need for manual routing of physical documentation thereby improving its reactivity and efficiency
  • Reduce/eliminate the need to print, sign and scan paper documents
  • To facilitate the authorizations and approval of documents electronically thereby facilitating the ability to conclude transactions electronically as well as to facilitate an entirely electronic management of documents

During the ongoing COVID 19 situation, ZorroSign improved our efficiency with the shift to a remote workforce, and improved our document workflow between employees not being able to have overlapping office and lab hours. ZorroSign provides a means to quickly and safely share, review, and sign critical documentation without missing a beat.

RealTime CTMS for Cosmetic Testing Subject Database

Realtime provides a cloud based Panelist Database management system that is HIPAA compliant and fully custom tailored to different types of clinical studies. Protected Health Information (PHI) is stored securely behind a 2 factor authenticated system and restricted by user access level to ensure compliance across all levels of data protection.

RealTime allows VCS to create customized digital studies and hand select panelists based on past history, demographics, and underlying conditions, collectively called their “Social History.” Database records include photos for visual qualification and assessment of underlying conditions as specified by individual sponsor clientele.

Communications with panelists are streamlined, and reminders for upcoming visits are automatically setup during digital study creation. RealTime dramatically improves efficiency through automation and clear organizational structure.

RealTime SitePAY

RealTime also provides a custom tailored solution for panelist payout which is fully digital and IRS compliant. Panelist total compensation is automatically tracked throughout the year via unique Medical Record Number (MRN) and payout is completed through individualized and token secured debit cards.

SitePAY eliminates the need for cash and checks onsite, dramatically reducing the risk of theft and fraud. It also provides a secondary quality check to ensure panelists are not “double dipping” on clinical studies, and that all tax related compensation guidelines are abided by on a continuous basis.

The Pandemic Paradigm for Claims by Validated Claim Support


As some businesses gear up to reopen with at least partial “on-site” attendance, it’s very important to look ahead and begin to assess what additional challenges the COVID-19 shutdown will have on the Personal Care industry throughout reopening. With all of the essential on-site only and distancing requirements, shipping delays, formulation setbacks, and awkward zoom meetings that have arisen from the stay at home orders, it is more important than ever to remain vigilant and proactive. In many cases this will lead to some compromises when it comes to claim support and consumer testing, and it’s extremely important to consider study designs that will be the best fit for the global consumer as well as the labs who help you support your claims.
