Swiss Pharma Leader Selects StayinFront for CRM Solution

Regional Division of Mepha to Deploy New Version of Innovative Technology

LONDON--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) -  StayinFront, Inc., a leading global provider of CRM and decision support solutions, today announced that Mepha Baltic, SIA, an affiliate of the innovative Swiss pharmaceutical company, Mepha Ltd., will deploy the latest version of StayinFront Life Sciences. The leading company in the Swiss generic drug market, Mepha develops and produces pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter medical products and exports its pharmaceuticals to more than 50 countries worldwide.

Mepha sought the StayinFront solution because it was looking for an effective way to target customers for both the pharmaceutical and OTC markets. They were also challenged by the inability to analyze the impact of promotional activities on sales. StayinFront's powerful built-in analytics will help Mepha to gain valuable insight into their customer data, and its Marketing Center module will strengthen Mepha's integrated marketing capabilities and help solidify implementation of a new two-dimensional targeting strategy. 

"The StayinFront system gives us a broad range of functionality that will support our sales efforts and provide us with the opportunity to gain insight into promotional buys that work to our advantage," stated Agita Lazdina, Mepha Baltic Regional Manager. "There aren't many vendors that support both the pharmaceutical and OTC marketplace, so StayinFront was a clear choice for us."

Wayne Gallaway, vice president of StayinFront EMEA Sales, said, "We are pleased that Mepha has recognized our unique ability to provide a reliable platform for performing marketing initiatives across various sales channels, including pharmacists, chains, general practitioners and specialists. We look forward to a long and successful relationship and are confident that we can help Mepha meet its objectives in the global marketplace."

StayinFront Life Sciences' helps companies secure and grow product market share at the physician and hospital account levels. The flexible solution supports various field teams and helps identify and leverage key opinion leader (KOL) relationships. In addition, StayinFront can provide the entire solution -- from software to infrastructure to support services -- with the assurance of the support of experts in the field of pharmaceutical CRM.
