DANBURY, Conn. & RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IQVIA (NYSE:IQV), a company dedicated to applying advanced analytics and technology to help healthcare clients find better solutions for patients, and Recordati SpA today announced a service alliance. Under the agreement Recordati will deploy IQVIA’s commercial technology solution, Orchestrated Customer Engagement (OCE) with OneKey, a comprehensive source of reference information on healthcare organizations and professionals (HCPs).
OCE’s commercial technology platform enables life sciences companies to transform customer engagement. OCE connects clients’ marketing, sales and other functions to integrate customer interactions, building trust and optimizing performance. By leveraging OneKey – which delivers comprehensive, accurate HCP information across 100 countries and is connected to IQVIA’s sales, medical claims, prescriptions, procedures and diagnosis information – OCE provides an unprecedented commercial experience.
Under the terms of this seven-year agreement, Recordati will move current CRM users to OCE, which Recordati selected because of its strong “platform of platforms” foundation and open architecture. Recordati will also benefit from greater control of HCP interaction using OneKey, which provides insight into more than 15 million professionals and one million healthcare organizations as well as the groups linking them together. This unique combination will be rolled out in a total of 17 countries with potential for further expansion into other countries where Recordati operates.
“This partnership with IQVIA is an important step forward for us to drive our customer-centric strategy across our business and continue our global expansion,” said Andrea Recordati, CEO at Recordati SpA.
IQVIA’s OCE solution is built on best-in-class technologies such as Salesforce.com, Mulesoft, Amazon Web Services, Heroku, Box and others to provide seamless use across a “platform of platforms.” The solution runs on Ada™, artificial intelligence that gives recommendations for next-best actions; Apollo™, an intuitive user interface; and Lexi™, an application program interface layer to connect all applications and data using common language.
“We are pleased that Recordati will deploy our new OCE technology with our robust OneKey dataset,” said Tal Rosenberg, senior vice president, Global Technology Solutions at IQVIA. “The OCE and OneKey combination will give Recordati greater understanding of its customers and markets through richer professional and organizational information, new data sources, expanded coverage, and timely updates across our nimble platform of platforms technology.”
IQVIA is committed to developing innovative technology solutions that help life sciences converge functional silos, integrate processes, strengthen customer relationships, and more effectively anticipate and respond to market changes. Additional information about OCE is available on the IQVIA website.
