Research and Markets Logo

Pharma has embraced the digital revolution with open arms-clearly it offers exciting new opportunities for customer engagement. But initial enthusiasm resulted in some instances of HCPs and others being bombarded with requests to interact. Since then, a quieter evolution has taken place, and pharma has developed more sophisticated approaches which are delivering far more effective results. So what lessons have been learned along the way? Are new technologies such as AI being used effectively yet? And what is pharma still getting wrong?

We asked these questions and more of 8 senior pharma experts with significant experience in customer engagement and digital transformation. We find out exactly what they think about the current issues.

This report details all their key insights including:

  • What, how and to whom: Read about how digital strategies are being used right now across pharma to successfully engage patients, HCPs and payers. How do yours compare?
  • Internal versus external: What specific internal capabilities and roles are required for success? When should expertise be accessed through partnerships or outsourcing? What should you know about how digital engagement is impacting your existing customer base?
  • Where to focus resources next: How might artificial intelligence be used to up the ante? Should you be developing mobile and sensor-based engagement strategies? What other new technologies should pharma be considering which are on the horizon now?
  • Take control: How can digital transformation strategies be harnessed to direct online and offline conversations, build and grow relationships and gain stronger competitive advantage?

Digital engagement presents a huge challenge and enormous potential benefits too-but getting it right (and keeping pace) is difficult. This report gives you the latest thinking in this fast-moving area of pharma. Use it to find out if your team is covering all bases and see what else is in store. Are you doing enough to release insight from multiple streams of data; better identify and meet changing customer needs; build value-adding customer relationships or competitive advantage?

Digital Technologies: New Strategies for Customer Engagement enables you to take stock of your current position and progress before setting out your strategy for further digital transformation over the coming months and years.

  • It identified 12 current issues regarding digital engagement with customers
  • It explored these via secondary research plus 20 targeted questions put to 8 digital technology and customer engagement experts with up-to-date experience
  • It used all of this to identify 80 unique new insights
  • Insights are supported by 116 directly quoted comments and 113 source references

The driving force behind digital engagement has changed from ‘quantity’ to ‘quality’. HCPs are responding well to more choice about how they engage. Experts refer to ‘selective value generation’ and this trend is delivering impressive results for those at the front of the field. But harnessing constantly developing technology correctly needs a long-term vision and resolve; it will also mean learning quickly and moving on from mistakes. Results are not instant-particularly when it comes to customer loyalty and trust-so pharma must have confidence in its approach and a wider vision in the long term if it’s going to succeed in becoming more than just a drug manufacturer.

Fulfillment costs as a percentage of its net revenue was 2.8%, down from 4.2% in the same period in 2018.

111’s One-Click Stock-In System solution makes it possible for pharmacies to place purchase orders within 15 minutes, a process which would otherwise take several hours. After uploading purchase orders, pharmacies are availed 111’s smart supply chain system -supported artificial intelligence analytics.

Ideanomics’ MEG Group Announces First Logistical Vehicle Orders; Second MEG Segment Comes Online

NEW YORK, Dec. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Ideanomics, (NASDAQ: IDEX) (“Ideanomics” or the “Company”), has today announced that its MEG Group, in partnership with GCL as part of MEG’s logistical vehicles segment, represents the first of a pipeline of logistical vehicle sales and financing for 2020. The order is for a total of 1,200 logistical vehicles and fulfilled by China-based EV manufacturer Jiangsu AOXIN New Energy Automobile Co., Ltd. through their X30L model, with the first 500 ordered in Q4, and the remaining 700 being ordered for Q1, 2020, for a total possible order value of 167 Million RMB, or approximately $24 Million.

Jiangsu AOXIN New Energy Automobile - X30L Model

The initial order signed during Q4 is for 500 vehicles, with the remaining order for 700 vehicles in Q1 2020. The vehicles are city/urban delivery cargo vans intended to facilitate last-mile deliveries. MEG will derive fees from this transaction through arranging the procurement and financing, although the company has not yet completed the accounting analysis to determine whether this revenue should be recorded on a Gross or Net basis under US GAAP – meaning the revenues may reflect net fees earned and not the $24MM order value.

“We are thrilled to get our first EV logistical vehicle orders underway, as this represents our largest potential segment of MEG in terms of vehicle order numbers and is the second of our four operating segments to successfully source large-scale EV vehicle orders,” said Alf Poor, CEO of Ideanomics. “This helps us confidently plan for 2020, knowing that each of our four segments is going to be active and, along with our bus and heavy truck segments, are already sourcing deal flow. With our taxi activities in Chengdu and Guilin held over until Q1, due to municipal subsidies and new taxi license policies being put in place for 2020, we were able to bring this deal together quickly and efficiently, prior to our lease financing funding channels coming online. This, together with our Taxi activities in Chengdu, Guilin, and Yunnan province in Q1, will provide us with a platform that will ramp up in Q2 and beyond as our business begins to hit its stride.”

The logistical vehicle market in China is estimated at 14 million vehicles, making it a considerable growth market for the EV industry.

Taxback International tackles the growing complexity of VAT compliance obligations across Europe

KILLKENNY, Ireland, Dec. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Catherin Quirke, Chief Commercial Officer for Taxback International, shared on The CEO Views the myriad of ways the company’s 23 years of experience give them the insight needed to deal with the ever changing and complex landscape of VAT compliance. One of the newest changes is the widespread digitalisation of tax systems which means they are changing faster than ever before.

Making Tax Digital for VAT (MTDfV) in the UK and Immediate Information System (SII) in Spain are examples of fully digitised systems and as digitalisation becomes even more common, businesses may be left racing to keep up with EU SAF-T reporting, changes in penalty regime and real-time reporting. Taxback International is one of the companies stepping in to ease the burden.

The pace and intricacies of these changes are putting a heavy load on VAT managers as they work to avoid penalties, worry about VAT thresholds, keep track of obligations and when/where VAT registrations are required. When even the smallest of mistakes can result in VAT compliance breaches which can lead to substantial penalties and consequences, Taxback International’s mission is to reduce VAT stress, remove the risk to managers’ reputations and also ensure all obligations are correctly identified and met. Taxback International Chief Innovation Officer, Eamon Clune says:

“My areas of expertise are machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and Robotic Process Automation, so seeing this evolution and further progression into digitalisation is very exciting. I can’t think of anything more appealing than researching and exploring new technologies to use in tackling these new challenges.”

Taxback International combines innovative technology, deep industry expertise and value added partnerships to deliver comprehensive VAT solutions that maximise VAT reclaim and minimise risks, so you can focus on growing your business.

Taxback International is a member of The Taxback Group, a collection of global companies that deliver focus driven, digitalised solutions to simplify the complexity of global business.
