SJV Connect
SJV Smart

There is a direct source data solution for all of us.
We just need the courage to put on the cape.

Data and research are the lifeblood of your business. When data is inaccurate, late, or incomplete, and research is unreliable, your business suffers. We feel your pain and we’ve put on the cape… We’re here for you… Data and research are all we do.

SJV is different from other alternatives CRAs have to support their business. We’re direct source. What does direct source mean? It means that we use our own staff of trained professionals to do research. We provide that research to you on SJV Connect, our exclusive, cloud-based technology, for easy access and reliable automation. And we run it all on our tried-and-true proprietary processes to put you as close to the data as possible. That’s the SJV difference. People. Process. Technology. That’s why we’re ready to scale up or down with you, today, right now, with the most accurate data, whenever your business needs.

So when you make a decision about which data and research provider to trust your business to, look for the cape… Make sure it’s a vendor that is direct source. And when accuracy, completeness and on-time delivery matter, your choice has to be SJV.


Leading CRA’s kryptonite against missed deadlines, inaccurate and incomplete results and poor coverage.
