LIFE BEFORE CHOOSING A SOLUTION
1. Increasing medical inquiries: With over 2.7 million product prescriptions written each day in EU alone, their medical information hotlines around the world were inundated with thousands of medical inquiries every day, increasing manual efforts, redundant processes and complex end-to-end inquiry handling.
2. Technological challenges: With the advancement of business and consumer technology, field representatives, healthcare professionals and consumers were increasingly adopting mobile devices and Internet for medical communication. The company did not have the necessary systems to cater to the needs of its consumers for immediate access to the required information whenever and wherever required.
3. Complex network of worldwide subsidiaries: The company enjoys the benefit of having a worldwide network of subsidiaries which in turn increases the complexities of manual processes, obsolete & redundant information, multiple languages, and different workflows making it nearly impossible to meet the demand of global medical inquiry handling and have consistent responses to medical queries.
4.Reporting was a challenge: Adding to the complexity was the need to integrate systems between different vendors. The company also had trouble producing timely reports, because its reporting process was not web- enabled.
