Organizations from emerging biopharma to the largest pharmaceutical
companies are improving field productivity and driving better customer
engagement

Veeva
Systems
(NYSE:VEEV) today announced that more life sciences
companies are adopting Veeva
OpenData
to empower their field teams with faster, accurate customer
data. Veeva OpenData provides access to approximately 16 million
healthcare professionals (HCPs) and their healthcare organizations
(HCOs) spanning 42 countries. Emerging biopharma and the largest
pharmaceutical companies are using Veeva OpenData in various regions to
increase field effectiveness and enhance customer engagement.

Accurate, actionable data was critical for Nestlé
Health Science
to improve efficiency of their sales teams. "Veeva
OpenData enables our sales reps to be more productive," said Rick Priem,
global CRM manager for Nestlé Health Science. "We have the insights we
need to better understand what is happening in the field and drive
improved customer interactions."

Specialty pharmaceutical company, Indivior,
previously had two data systems and worked from 17 different versions of
the same data source across North America and Europe. This created an
administrative burden on field reps managing customer information and
left teams uncertain if they were working from the most current data
such as physician addresses and specialty areas.

Indivior moved to Veeva OpenData for one complete source of customer
reference data to help field teams effectively and compliantly deliver
new addiction treatment information to HCPs. Now HCP data is validated
easier and faster, resulting in field teams that are confident they are
leveraging the right customer information.

"By switching to Veeva OpenData, we gained a single source of customer
data that's accurate – a major advantage in today's varying compliance
environment," said Dianne Goodburn, commercial director at Indivior.

Veeva OpenData delivers fast, up-to-date customer data so field reps can
focus on building trusted relationships with their customers. Data
stewards validate and update data change requests in hours versus the
industry average of 10 or more days.1 Through integration of
Veeva OpenData with Veeva
CRM
, a sales representative can search and download data up to 60%
faster and with 50% fewer clicks, allowing field reps to target the
right physicians and opportunities in real-time.2

"Veeva OpenData delivers quality customer data, right in CRM, to improve
our sales execution," said Dipak Bhatti, managing director at Syner-Med.
"Our sales reps can take a more targeted approach to field-based
activities, helping improve the quality of our customer interactions."

Veeva also makes it easier for companies to use and gain value from
their customer data through an ecosystem of certified
Veeva OpenData partners
. Expanded partnerships eliminate the need
for multiple third-party agreements, shortening time and reducing costs
of implementation.

"Many industry-leading companies are turning to Veeva OpenData as a
complete source of customer data to improve sales execution, maintain
compliance, and deliver accurate reporting and analytics," said Rebecca
Silver, global vice president of Veeva OpenData. "Veeva OpenData is
becoming foundational for customers of all sizes in driving greater
commercial success."
