StayinFront Partners With MedPro Systems

Trending Now: Life-sciences CRM software release improves efficiency and in-field PDMA ­compliance by providing sales reps with real-time mobile access to 14 million records.

StayinFront and MedPro Systems have partnered to allow pharmaceutical field representatives, using the StayinFront TouchRx platform, to access MedPro’s data to update critical information such as state license information.

StayinFront customers, with subscriptions to the MedProID suite of products, can link to MedPro’s database on their mobile device, to add, validate or revalidate healthcare professionals via the new MedPro DirectID-StayinFront solution. This streamlines the validation process and gives sales reps the necessary information, such as license, key identifiers, and validation status, to sample immediately. Contact data are drawn directly from the MedPro database and matched up with the existing database, improving the accuracy of the data and reducing duplicate records.

“This integration gives sales reps a one-stop solution to easily search and feed validated license information directly into their TouchRx CRM system, improving efficiency, data accuracy and their ability to meet PDMA sampling compliance requirements,” says Sam Barclay, executive VP and managing director, North America at StayinFront.
