Veeva
Systems
(NYSE:VEEV) today announced that top life sciences companies
are adopting Veeva
CRM Events Management
to manage their
customer events. More than 60 companies, including 13 of the top 20
pharmaceutical companies, are using Veeva CRM Events Management in at
least one region to run fully integrated events for improved engagement
with healthcare professionals (HCPs) and greater visibility across all
events.

Nearly 72% of life sciences organizations report that using disparate
systems is their biggest challenge in managing events.1 Veeva
CRM Events Management streamlines the management of events in a single
system, providing a holistic approach to plan and execute all events and
activities.

For example, global biopharmaceutical company, Bristol-Myers Squibb,
successfully implemented Veeva CRM Events Management in more than 58
markets to improve the efficiency and compliance of their events
worldwide.

“By streamlining events planning globally with Veeva CRM Events
Management, we have standardized critical components of our programs,
which in turn has significantly reduced the time to execute events,”
said Lynn Kubinski, head of HCP interactions, congress, and meetings
management at Bristol-Myers Squibb. “Also, our teams have insight into
what worked and what could be done better next time. Ultimately, this
enhances our engagement with customers.”

Veeva CRM Events Management is seamlessly integrated with multichannel Veeva
CRM
to easily track speakers, spend, and attendees globally. This
allows organizations to incorporate events as part of their multichannel
strategy and better coordinate HCP engagement.

With a comprehensive network of 15 partners, customers also have access
to integrated, specialized products and services such as speaker and
venue management, logistics services, and compliance systems to use with
Veeva CRM Events Management. Veeva’s extensive ecosystem of partners
gives customers more choice in how they execute events.

“Events are one of the most effective and efficient ways for commercial
and medical affairs teams to engage with more healthcare professionals,”
said Andy Fuchs, vice president of commercial strategy at Veeva Systems.
“Veeva CRM Events Management gives the industry an end-to-end solution
fully integrated with Veeva CRM to efficiently and compliantly manage
events and improve customer engagement.”
