BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV) today announced that Zoom video and web conferencing capabilities will be embedded in Veeva CRM Engage applications to enable seamless digital engagement between life sciences companies and healthcare professionals (HCPs). Veeva continues to bring together best-in-class cloud and digital technologies so that the life sciences industry can go-to-market with their products more efficiently and effectively.
There are greater expectations among physicians for information and interactions to be online and on-demand through the digital channels and mobile devices they prefer. For life sciences companies, digital can expand access and reach to more HCPs and get accurate information to the right person with greater speed, ultimately creating more valuable interactions. However, technology barriers coupled with regulatory requirements have made the shift to digital engagement slow and difficult.
For the first time, life sciences companies can have a single, integrated solution for easy and compliant video and web conferencing for online meetings through Veeva CRM Engage Meeting, as well as for virtual events with Veeva CRM Engage Webinar. Both applications are integrated with Veeva CRM for reps to create a seamless communications experience and share approved content with HCPs compliantly.
“Zoom’s mission is to make video communications frictionless so that real-time collaboration is simple and reliable,” said Eric S. Yuan, founder and CEO of Zoom. “Veeva is a cloud pioneer that has eliminated many technology barriers in the life sciences industry. Their use of the Zoom platform will be a powerful combination in delivering a leading-edge digital experience.”
“Veeva is opening up online engagement possibilities for life sciences companies and HCPs to collaborate and deliver better patient outcomes,” said Arno Sosna, general manager of Veeva CRM. “Zoom has changed communications in the cloud and alongside Veeva, customers can take advantage of new digital channels without the risk.”
Embedding Zoom enables Veeva to integrate video and web conferencing capabilities natively into Veeva CRM Engage applications. Zoom delivers best-in-class video performance even in low-bandwidth environments, providing customers and HCPs the quality and reliability they need to interact and collaborate online.
More than 200 customers are using Veeva CRM to seamlessly orchestrate customer interactions and deliver a personalized experience to HCPs across multiple communication channels, including in-person and digital.
Veeva CRM Engage applications will be showcased at 2016 Veeva European Commercial Summit, one of the largest dedicated events for commercial and medical professionals in Europe. The event takes place 29 November to 1 December in Madrid, Spain. For more information, visit the European Commercial Summit website.
