Benefits of Pharmaceutical E-Details

1.    Enhanced user experience

In our opinion, the biggest benefit of implementing e-details, is that these can provide a richer user experience and take your audience beyond the basic reading experience. By integrating the multiple interactive features, e-details can enhance the overall user experience and create an eye-catching and engaging document. These memorable experiences can help to inspire, inform, and educate readers about the values of a brand, whilst simultaneously helping convert these into customers.

2.    Data Capture for customer understanding

Another great feature of e-details is that these can help create a better understanding of what content works with customers. For example, analytical information can be collected during a e-detail presentation and highlight the most effective areas of interest for perspective customers. By measuring levels of engagement within an e-detail, this can help pharmaceutical marketers create the most effective sales documents for future customers.

Furthermore, by syncing up e-details to your CRM system, this allows sales reps access and enter contact details and other relevant sales information.

3.    Accessibility

Another key benefit is that e-details are incredibly accessible to most users. These days, it’s safe to assume that most people will have access to a laptop, desktop computer, smartphone, or tablet. With this, e-details are easy to circulate via online downloads and emails and seamlessly work across multiple platforms on all.

4.    Eye-catching content

By incorporating impactful content such as moving graphics or videos, this can help create eye-catching content and draw the attention of users to focus on specific areas of the document. For example, a sales brochure may want to use animation to highlight and draw attention to a specific call-to-action on the page (e.g., ‘buy it now’, ‘contact us’)

5.    Cost-Effective

Another benefit of e-detailing for pharma marketers is that e-details are also incredibly cost-effective. Whilst many businesses will spend a large sum on printing traditional sales documents, e-details are expensive to develop, easy to circulate, save on printing costs, and lower your carbon footprint.

6.    Easier content updates

Another handy feature of e-details is that these are incredibly easy to update! As e-details are digital documents, these are incredibly easy to update with the latest sales data including prices, product information, and statistical data to help support your sales pitch. Updating e-details remotely can also be incredibly helpful when travelling out on the road.
