Pharmaceutical Companies Can Avoid Costly Launch Expenses by Leveraging and Pooling Sales and Promotional Resources
Date:8/16/2013

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Aug. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- While having a rich pipeline can be considered a "good problem," launching and promoting several products in the same therapeutic area within a short timeframe presents an array of challenges. With the pressure to reduce budgets mounting within both the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, it is critical that leaders learn how to share resources for two products in the same therapeutic area.

Executives have increasingly utilized a franchise approach as a successful cost-cutting tactic. Recent benchmark research shows that franchises are highly effective in driving not only sales force effectiveness, but also in enhancing customer targeting and reducing average sales force size and training.

    • Sales Force Alignment & Training
    • Sales Samples & Collateral Management

    • Better Territory Alignment
    • Sales Force Effectiveness & Span of Control
    • Sales Management & Analytics
  • Combining Resources for Efficiently Marketing Multiple Products with Similar Indications
  • Optimal Brand Team Approaches for Product Franchise
  • Content most /least often included in formal Sales Training curriculum
