PLEASANTON, CA – June 2, 2015 –Veeva Systems is among the top three most preferred life sciences software vendors, according to IDC Health Insights’ Leading Indicators in Life Sciences IT Spending Surveyi, which measures planned investments for 2015. This is the third year that Veeva has been among the top ten vendors, and has been steadily increasing its standing among life sciences executives over the past three years – jumping to 3rd most preferred provider from 8th two years ago.

Veeva delivers industry cloud software solutions to help life sciences companies achieve their most pressing strategic objectives – bringing drugs to market faster and more efficiently, maximizing revenues, and maintaining compliance with government regulations. Veeva was the only industry cloud vendor to top the list.

In addition to its most preferred status, Veeva has been named a ‘Leader’ in the IDC Marketscape Worldwide Life Science CRM Software 2015 Vendor Assessment, and ranked the 3rd life sciences software vendor globally by IDC Health Insights’ Vendor Assessment: 2014 Top 10 Life Science Software Vendors report.ii Veeva climbed two positions this year from last year’s rankings.

IDC cites Veeva’s leading-edge functionality and ease of use as among the best in the industry. The survey noted Veeva’s industry expertise as a key differentiator. “The company’s sole focus on the life science industry boosts its unique understanding of market wants and needs. This was echoed by the firm’s customers, which gave Veeva’s life science market expertise extremely high marks,” the report notes.iii

“We are honored by this recognition, especially since it comes from our most important stakeholder, our customers,” said Paul Shawah, vice president of product marketing for Veeva. “Our ranking as one of the top providers to the industry reflects our commitment to continually innovating and expanding our industry cloud solutions to deliver extraordinary value to life sciences companies as we partner with them to achieve their strategic objectives.”

In addition to the recognition from IDC, Veeva also recently received two other notable awards. Nucleus Research named Veeva ‘Leader’ in its Technology Value Matrix for CRM for the third year in a row. Nucleus Research considers candidates’ track record of innovation in system functionality and usability, particularly in the areas of sales, marketing, and customer service.

The only life sciences-specific provider named a leader by Nucleus, “Veeva offers an accelerated time to value with its industry-specific products because solutions built for a particular industry are able to provide more out-of-the-box capabilities, which decreases implementation time and cost,” the report states.

Veeva Commercial Cloud was also singled out by PharmaVOICE as ‘Most Innovative Platform’ for 2014, as judged against hundreds of nominations from across the life sciences industry. Veeva Commercial Cloud brings together the data, content, and interactions needed for life sciences companies to deliver a fully coordinated and compliant customer experience across channels.
