Applications of commercial analytics
There are a few areas to focus on while applying commercial analytics to drive customer loyalty and identify revenue sources. They include:
Customer segmentation and targeting
Pharmaceutical companies need to recognize physicians whose prescribing patterns fit their portfolio of drugs.
Every doctor is bound to follow a prescription pattern, but the doctors need to be mapped correctly. Organizations must calculate the turnover rate and physician lifetime for a particular medication.
Patient data analysis
Data related to drug efficiency will assist pharmaceutical companies in predicting their product's lifetime value. Businesses can quickly recognize their promising players and established sources of revenue by analyzing terabytes of patient knowledge.
Social media analytics
Organizations should not turn a blind eye to social media in a world where expressing opinions counts. A population cohort's sentiments will disclose the ground truths about a substance. Unbiased traction can be calculated by examining social media, a direct medium for interpreting consumer speech, for a newly released drug.
Analysis of marketing channels
Each company uses distinctive ways to advertise its products or services, and every marketing channel has its advantages and disadvantages. Are the conventional networks keeping pace in the era of fast-paced digital marketing? Are they significant? If so, what is the cost to the company? Answering these questions helps investors to plan go-to-market plans depending on the channel.
