Pharmaceuticals, Lifesciences, Healthcare

The success of the pharmaceutical sector rides on creating awareness of drugs and medicines which is made possible by a strong field sales workforce or marketing representatives (MRs). Another crucial aspect is ensuring the availability of medicines at the right channel – stockists, distributors and pharmacies which necessitates a robust distribution network. Coordination, transparency, communication and real-time updates are essential to the back office, supply chain, logistics as well as the field force personnel.
