A global medical device and equipment manufacturing company’s National Accounts Management team was confronted by a multitude of daily challenges that slowed timelines and hindered company success. The NA managers constantly connect with reps, sales managers and GMs across the company. While overseeing and handling hundreds of spreadsheets, managing calls, contracts, and pricing, the NAM team often spent an excessive amount of time effectively organizing data and getting answers for the field. With their current BI software, it could not handle access to all the important time critical data which can take weeks to receive from home office with associated human error risks. With an NAM team that brings in a few billion dollars of overall company revenue, it is vital to complete these daily tasks in an efficient manner for clients both at IDN level and for internal stakeholders.
Our client’s National Account Managers have various responsibilities and account for an enormous portion of company revenues, so efficient work is essential to their success. Using their traditional BI software to manage information did not make the daily tasks any easier, and even slowed operations. There was information–unautomated, many calls, numerous spreadsheets, complex contracts, and vital pricing information–everywhere, and such data could take weeks to obtain from data centers. This information was copious, difficult to understand, and by no means actionable. Essential sales information was not easily accessible; customer inventory and contracts data was typically only available through convoluted and time consuming internal processes. Overall, team collaboration was difficult to organize. The company needed National Account Managers to organize, not struggle with data. There had to be a better way.
TikaMobile worked with the NAM team to create a dedicated new National Accounts application for the company. The app organized access to individual GPO’s and IDN’s performance by hospitals, Units, Revenue, Compliance, etc. With greater visibility and insights to make superior decisions, NAMs were more well-informed for and during conversations/meetings with sales management/leadership, customers, and field reps. This success is also due to real-time analysis of all disparate information without waiting days to receive, and automated presentations with real-time sales data.
