Using Promotional Efficiency to Support Multiple Products and Indications in the Pharmaceutical Marketplace
Date:7/25/2014

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., July 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's marketplace, launching multiple products for a common therapeutic area is costly and challenging - as is managing a portfolio of products in the same therapeutic area.

Is it possible - or even preferable - to pool resources to support similar products together? If so, where can you combine resources and activities, and what marketing and sales activities should remain separated?

These are just a few of the dilemmas facing pharmaceutical sales, brand and marketing teams that are tasked with helping launch and/or promote multiple products in the same therapeutic area. Research and consulting leader Best Practices, LLC conducted a primary research project that examined the pros and cons of launching and promoting multiple products as part of a "franchise."

The study found that franchises rely heavily on Centers of Excellences (CoE) to distribute expertise across products, especially in high-impact areas. Overall, more than 75% of franchises currently use Centers of Excellence for some facet of franchise support. The most effective CoE support involves injecting critical expertise into such areas as Med Education, Sales Force Effectiveness, Thought Leader Management, Training, and Customer Targeting.

"Best Practices in Launch Optimization: How Promotional Efficiency can be Leveraged to Support Multiple Products & Indications" is a new report that provides pharmaceutical sales, brand and commercial leaders with metrics and insights they can use to evaluate and improve the management of their pipelines and portfolio assets. Through a mix of qualitative and quantitative data, the study examines how and where to reduce costs, gain efficiencies, grow the top-line, and build a long-term reputation as a therapeutic area leader. The research also highlights common stumbling blocks for companies that choose to use a franchise approach.

This 85-page study provides metrics and insights around:

  • Managing Similar Products or an Integrated Product Portfolio
  • Optimizing Sales Resources within Franchise Operations
  • Leveraging Resources for:
    • Sales Force Alignment & Training
    • Sales Samples & Collateral Management
