OpenQ, today announced OpenQ for Salesforce is now available on Force.com, salesforce.com’s social enterprise cloud platform for building employee-facing social apps. The new app brings together OpenQ’s expertise and solutions for harnessing the power of medical networks with the reliability, power and reach of the Force.com platform. OpenQ for Salesforce enables life sciences companies to effectively engage with key opinion leaders (KOLs) and stakeholders in a compliant way.
"Force.com is a fantastic platform – one that offers many advantages to its users,” said Jim Zuffoletti, president of OpenQ. “Integrating our industry leading technology and data services with Force.com gives customers the best of both worlds – a social, mobile, and compliant app built on a trusted and powerful platform. We were able to build an app that allows customers to perform critical planning, interact and evaluate activities using processes, manage profiles and workflows, all with built-in compliance protection.
"OpenQ for Salesforce highlights the strengths of our Force.com platform when building social and mobile apps," said Ron Huddleston, senior vice president ISV Alliances at salesforce.com. "OpenQ delivers a tightly integrated verticalized solution combining data, workflows, and an intuitive interface while setting a new standard for rapid deployment."
The Power of Social, Mobile, Open and Compliant
OpenQ for Salesforce delivers powerful tools to navigate the professional social networks among healthcare professionals (HCPs) and identify the most influential key opinion leaders. Built-in access to comprehensive biographical data, such as affiliation and clinical information, is available to promote effective engagement. Coupled with MobileQ, OpenQ’s innovative mobile solution, OpenQ for Salesforce breaks new ground in addressing the social, mobile, and compliant mandate facing pharmaceutical, device and biotech companies. The result is a powerful suite of tools working behind native mobile applications. Offline functionality ensures customers can work even when their wireless devices do not.
Product Key Features
Rather than providing a disparate group of software tools for specific tasks, OpenQ for Salesforce provides a comprehensive app which includes functionality to identify key opinion leaders; review their professional profiles; and plan, manage and measure the resulting engagement. OpenQ’s data offerings are seamlessly tied to the platform. For example, new stakeholder and network profiles can be easily discovered within the provided identification and search tools. Once identified, all stakeholder and network information automatically becomes part of the customer’s private repository. Built-in reports and an ad-hoc reporting engine provide a powerful lens for analyzing the data captured by the system.
