FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New Veeva CRM Engage Meeting to Transform Digital Engagement Between Life Sciences Companies and Healthcare Professionals
Cloud application makes online meetings easy and compliant
PLEASANTON, CA — Nov. 30, 2016 — Today at the Veeva European Commercial Summit, one of the largest life sciences events for commercial and medical affairs professionals in Europe, Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV) announced the availability of Veeva CRM Engage Meeting to open up an important digital channel between life sciences companies and healthcare professionals (HCPs) without the risk. For the first time, the industry has a single, integrated solution for easy and compliant online meetings.
“Veeva CRM Engage Meeting has the potential to fundamentally change how sales teams and healthcare professionals collaborate to drive better patient outcomes,” said Paul Shawah, vice president of commercial cloud strategy at Veeva. “The rise of digital channels gives the industry a convenient way to get accurate information to the right person and create more valuable interactions.”
Digital engagement can significantly improve collaboration with HCPs. Not only can life sciences companies increase reach and deliver more relevant, tailored information to physicians, but HCPs can also interact with field reps through the online channels and mobile devices they prefer. Traditionally, technology limitations and regulatory challenges have made digital engagement difficult.
Veeva CRM Engage Meeting enables companies to more effectively connect with HCPs through easy and compliant video and web conferencing for online meetings. The new application is integrated with Veeva CRM and Veeva CLM for sales reps to share approved, consistent content with physicians and create a seamless online communications experience that meets HCP expectations.
The Veeva CRM Engage family of products includes Veeva CRM Engage Meeting, Veeva CRM Engage Webinar to simplify virtual events, and Veeva CRM Engage for Portals to provide HCPs self-directed online access from any device. Veeva CRM Engage Webinar is planned for availability in July 2017, and Veeva CRM Engage for Portals is available now.

Also, register for a webinar to hear how to eliminate barriers to digital engagement and create a coordinated digital strategy to take place on December 8, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. PT.
