Skura Corporation and Verticals onDemand Announce Strategic Partnership for the Life Sciences Industry
Leading Companies Integrate Closed-Loop Marketing (CLM) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Solutions to Maximize Sales Efficiency
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario & PLEASANTON, Calif.--Skura Corporation, the leader in next generation software for CLM, and Verticals onDemand, the emerging market leader in Pharma CRM, today announced that they have joined forces to offer the Life Sciences industry the most streamlined CRM/CLM solution available on the market. The joint solution is offered via the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, giving joint customers breakthrough ease of use, tremendous flexibility, and unbeatable cost effectiveness.
“Verticals onDemand’s current market success proves that the SaaS model is rapidly gaining traction for CRM in today’s Life Sciences industry,” says Jeff Wessinger, President of Skura’s Products division. “This partnership marks the first time that Life Sciences companies can deploy a completely integrated CRM/CLM solution without acquiring, installing, upgrading, or maintaining a single server.”
The Skura SFX™ Suite has already been chosen by some of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies as they strive to improve the effectiveness of their sales forces. Unfortunately, these customers are currently limited by the inflexibility of their legacy client/server CRM platforms. Through this partnership with Verticals onDemand, Skura customers can now take full advantage of the flexibility of the SaaS model.
“Skura has the momentum in the CLM space, delivering its next generation application to several of the world’s largest Pharmaceutical companies in the last 12 months” declared Matt Wallach, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Verticals onDemand. “There is no overlap between our two systems, meaning our joint customers will pay for only what they need and it will always be clear how to approach an implementation.”
“As global Life Sciences companies continue to transform their sales and marketing capabilities, the tight integration of CLM and CRM solutions is a must,” explained Dale Hagemeyer, Research Vice President, Manufacturing-Life Sciences and Consumer Goods, Gartner Inc.
