Even as digital investments increase, the field force remains the primary means of customer engagement for pharma companies and is their biggest promotional investment. As a means of providing guidance to the field, traditional call planning occurs infrequently and in cycles, oftentimes failing to incorporate the latest data available to drive rep activity and customer interactions. Dynamic Targeting leverages digital investments by bringing data and insights to the field force in a more timely manner, enabling more real-time, data driven decisions. Using the latest customer and data insights, Dynamic Targeting provides clear, effective guidance to empower field teams to optimize brand reach and drive exceptional customer engagement.
