New Survey Reveals Untapped Opportunity to Improve Sales Effectiveness for Life Sciences Industry

SAN FRANCISCO, March 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today Zephyr Health, the leading Insights-as-a-Service company, released a report that reveals a largely untapped opportunity for sales teams in Life Sciences companies; integrating global health data and predictive insights into their commercial efforts. This latest report, “Navigating your way to insights-driven customer relationships,” published in conjunction with pharmaphorum, found that the majority of both management and frontline staff see current Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems as a valuable tool for managing activities and customers, yet to date has not helped field teams find actions for sales strategy and planning.

"Bringing predictive capabilities and insights into customer engagement strategies and solutions is a nascent but growing opportunity for Life Sciences companies to improve sales effectiveness,” said Lance Scott, chief executive officer, Zephyr Health. “We consistently hear from our customers that they want more from their existing systems, and they recognize the immense value in having market and customer intelligence integrated into their CRM for competitive advantage.”

The “Navigating Your Way to Insights-Driven Customer Relationships” survey assessed 107 frontline sales and management staff to determine where the Life Sciences industry is in its own journey of improving customer engagement. The final report provides insights and recommendations to transform customer engagement and put forward a more proactive and predictive sales strategy.
