Verticals onDemand Expands Strategic Partner Base to Support Increasing Market Demand
PLEASANTON, Calif. & KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa.--Verticals onDemand, the pharmaceutical industry’s only provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for CRM, and HighPoint Solutions, LLC have joined forces to provide pharmaceutical and biotech customers with comprehensive implementation, integration, and support services for VBioPharma™ CRM implementations. HighPoint Solutions is a leading life sciences IT consultancy that combines strategic consulting and technical services to assist life sciences companies with business strategy and operations.
Verticals onDemand initially designed and built VBioPharma – currently available as Specialty Care Edition, Managed Markets Edition, and Medical Liaison Edition – to specifically support the unique needs of important niche areas in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. The Primary Care Edition will be available in Fall 2007. The product line provides complete CRM functionality plus all the SaaS benefits of the Salesforce Platform. Verticals onDemand, which announced its first customer in June, developed its partnership with HighPoint Solutions in response to increasing market demand for VBioPharma.
“Verticals onDemand has taken off incredibly fast, so we are working hard to establish a reliable partner base to support customer needs,” said Matt Wallach, vice president of sales and marketing for Verticals onDemand. “HighPoint was an obvious match for us with its rich pharmaceutical industry expertise and outstanding technical talent.”
HighPoint Solutions is a proven market leader, with more than 50 pharmaceutical clients including seven of the top 10 largest pharmaceutical companies in the U.S. The company offers business strategy services as well as system implementation, integration, training, and ongoing support services. Together, Verticals onDemand and HighPoint Solutions will offer pharmaceutical and biotech companies the applications and expertise to accelerate their migration to the Verticals onDemand CRM model.
“Leading global companies are adopting onDemand applications due to the ease of deployment, support, and faster time to value,” said Patrick Retif, executive vice president of client solutions at HighPoint Solutions. “We can get companies up and running on VBioPharma 75% faster than any other product. New users can be added at any time. And, the product offers incredibly rich, vertical-specific functionality that no other vendor has. It’s really no surprise that demand for this product is gaining speed.”
