InterMune lance avec succès ses opérations européennes et son nouveau médicament orphelin avec Veeva CRM et iRep basés sur le cloud

BARCELONE, Espagne, November 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Lorsque la société de biotechnologie émergente InterMune a étendu ses activités en Europe, elle a cherché une solution de gestion de la relation client (CRM) fiable qui permettrait de lancer son médicament orphelin, Esbriet - le premier et unique traitement pouvant ralentir de façon prouvée la progression de la maladie chez les patients légèrement ou modérément atteints de fibrose pulmonaire idiopathique (FPI).

InterMune devait également déployer rapidement une nouvelle solution, de sorte que la société de biotechnologie recherchait une plateforme flexible, facile à mettre en œuvre et simple d'utilisation. Après avoir évalué trois fournisseurs de CRM, InterMune a sélectionné Veeva CRM sur le cloud, intégrant iRep - la seule application intégrée de CRM et de CLM (Closed Loop Marketing - Marketing en boucle fermée) dans  l'industrie à être conçue pour l'iPad d'Apple.

« Veeva CRM est rapidement sorti du lot pour plusieurs raisons », a expliqué Ernest Leek, Directeur senior du marketing et de l'efficacité commerciale pour l'Europe chez InterMune. « Le fait que Veeva CRM tire pleinement parti des dernières technologies sur le cloud, a été un facteur de décision clé pour nous. Cette solution garantit que notre système reste toujours actualisé avec des mises à jour en temps réel et des modifications permettant de s'adapter au rythme de notre croissance rapide. En outre, Veeva CRM repose sur une plateforme qui a fait ses preuves, et offre plus de puissance et de stabilité par rapport aux autres fournisseurs de CRM que nous avons évalués. »

À ce jour, InterMune a déployé Veeva CRM et iRep pour ses utilisateurs en Allemagne, en France, en Scandinavie, au Benelux et en Autriche. L'année dernière,InterMune a également adopté Vault PromoMats, l'application de gestion de contenu sur le cloud de Veeva, pour la gestion internationale du contenu promotionnel.

« Lorsque nous avons décidé d'opter pour Veeva, il ne s'agissait pas d'un choix purement technologique. L'entreprise a connu comme nous une croissance très rapide au cours des cinq dernières années, et Veeva présente ce même état d'esprit qui donne la priorité au client. Ainsi nous savions que les deux cultures de nos organisations étaient en adéquation », a ajouté M. Leek.

Selon InterMune, leurs équipes de vente et de marketing ont adopté iRep. Les fonctionnalités de CRM et de CLM, intégrées à l'application, fournissent au service marketing de précieuses informations sur les interactions avec les clients sur le terrain. Elles permettent en fin de compte aux équipes marketing et commerciales d'améliorer l'expérience client et d'élaborer une organisation plus centrée sur le client. Veeva iRep répond aux besoins de ses deux équipes - les représentants commerciaux disposent de reportings sur leurs visites, d'une vision sur les données  et d'outils de vente, le tout sur un seul appareil élégant, tandis que le service marketing peut produire un contenu plus riche et le transférer facilement pour une diffusion rapide sur le terrain.

« Je fais partie de cette industrie depuis plus de 12 ans et j'ai toujours été frustré par la technologie existante et par ses limites quant à l'amélioration effective de l'interaction avec le client », a expliqué M. Leek. « Veeva est l'une des entreprises les plus innovantes dans le secteur des sciences de la vie et elle a repoussé les limites afin de mener un véritable changement grâce à sa technologie de CRM. »

M. Leek a conclu : « Il a été impressionnant de constater l'évolution de tout ce que nous pouvons faire avec Veeva CRM et cela nous rappelle constamment que nous avons certainement pris la bonne décision en choisissant Veeva. »

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
