Does more “sophisticated” analytics for sales resource allocation truly drive better brand performance?

    1 mins read

    The industry uses a broad range of approaches today for customer valuation, promotion response analytics and sales force resource allocation.   With the increasing complexities in the marketplace and availability of richer data, there has also been continuous innovation in analytical methodologies for resource allocation.

    On one end of the spectrum is simple economic valuation, resource allocation based on product/market prescription volume & business rules.  At the other end of the complexity spectrum is deriving customer valuation based on patient data analytics, promotion response methodologies that incorporate IDN/Payer influence etc.

    During the lunch session at PMSA Annual Conference 2016, Charlie Thompson from Axtria will present the poster comparing the difference between simple and complex methodologies for a single product sales force.  He will discuss and compare following three different methodologies of resource allocation and its impact on the brand performance:

    1. Market/Brand volume based methodologies
    2. Promotion response based methodologies
    3. Advanced promotion response methodologies including Payer/IDN influence quantification

    Stop by during the lunch session at PMSA to learn more about the resource allocation methodologies and automated tools that can work in favor of your business performance.
