Veeva CRM Events Management and Veeva Align help commercial teams achieve high-quality, high-impact interactions
BARCELONA, SPAIN — Dec. 3, 2015 – Veeva Systems announced today at its European Commercial Summit the general availability of two new Veeva Commercial Cloud products: Veeva CRM Events Management and Veeva Align. These new offerings help life sciences companies to achieve sales and marketing goals more effectively, while keeping up with changing compliance requirements.
Veeva CRM Events Management allows companies to better manage all events in coordination with the field, and provides visibility into activities, speakers, attendees, and spend. Veeva Align is a global solution integrated with Veeva CRM for faster, more accurate sales territory alignments.
These products continue Veeva’s track record of delivering market-leading innovation and increasing value with each new release of Veeva CRM. They are also the latest addition to Veeva Commercial Cloud, a platform that brings together the rich data, compliant content, and interactions needed for life sciences companies to deliver a fully coordinated customer experience across multiple channels.
“Companies in the European life sciences market are under pressure to maintain their commercial performance while facing both economic and regulatory challenges. Veeva continues to deliver innovative products to give our customers a more effective way of doing business to meet these challenges,” said Jan van den Burg, vice president of commercial strategy at Veeva Europe. “By bringing together and leveraging deep but traditionally siloed sets of customer, market, and industry data, our customers can achieve high-quality, high-impact commercial outreach across multiple channels.”
NEW Veeva CRM Events Management
With many disconnected systems and diversity of approval workflows in use across event types and European territories, it is challenging to efficiently track speakers and spend. With the EFPIA’s June 2016 payment transparency reporting deadline now imminent, this is a major issue for companies in Europe. Matching the right speakers with the right audience is also difficult to coordinate across internal and external parties.
Veeva CRM Events Management helps companies plan and manage events more efficiently, compliantly, and in coordination with field and medical teams. It delivers a complete view of speakers, attendees, input into transfer of value reporting, and it integrates seamlessly with Veeva CRM for easier, more accurate attendee tracking. Built-in spend management also helps marketers ensure that funds are allocated to the right events while staying within budget.
NEW Veeva Align
Life sciences companies are deploying new commercial models, engaging with multiple stakeholders, and operating in an environment of constant change. This makes territory alignment critical yet challenging. The current approach is time and resource intensive, and omits key considerations such as rep skill level, customer channel preferences, and existing relationships. The result is inefficient use of resources, which impacts sales execution. With an estimated cost of €200–250 per rep call, it is vital that the right HCPs are being engaged.
Veeva Align delivers faster, more accurate alignments. With seamless integration with Veeva CRM, alignments are rapidly deployed for field feedback and collaboration. Even the largest territory assignments can be previewed in minutes rather than days. And, as a single global platform, Veeva Align provides centralized management, while still allowing local control.
In other news today, Veeva announced the global availability of Veeva KOL Data as a subscription, offering a single consolidated, global source of all key stakeholder information, and Veeva introduced Veeva Medical CRM to enable better KOL engagements.
