One Eleven Software and ROI(2) Create Alliance, Offer Influence Network E-sampling
New e-sampling product identifies and targets most influential prescribers to increase the ROI of pharmaceutical marketing campaigns
WEST CORNWALL, Conn. & RESTON, Va., Apr 03, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- One Eleven Software, a leader in the development of software solutions for healthcare providers (HCPs), and ROI(2), a pioneer in influence intelligence, today announced a strategic alliance to develop e-sampling products for pharmaceutical marketing that identify and target physicians who influence vast networks of prescribers.
"The combination of One Eleven's e-sampling solutions with ROI(2)'s Sphere of Influence will drastically improve pharmaceutical company targeting of physicians," said Janet Carlson, C.E.O., One Eleven Software. "Traditionally, pharma has sampled based on decile, that is, based on the number of prescriptions written. Influence Network Sampling will instead sample based on the influence a physician has within their community and their network. This type of targeting is much more accurate and measures the impact of messaging and sampling in real-time."
Digital Influence is one of the hottest trends in social media. It is also one of the least understood. The textbook definition of influence is the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effect itself. Digital influence, however, is the ability to cause effect, change behavior, and drive measurable outcomes both online and off.
"Brands are realizing the promise of connecting to connected physicians. While decile-based sampling focused on one metric -- the number of prescriptions a doctor is writing -- Influence Network Sampling measures a dozen metrics to define the influence a physician has within their community," said Bonnie Rishell, C.E.O., ROI(2). "Pharmaceutical companies that use our Influence Vector® score understand that the context of relationships is more important and can have a greater impact than just decile. Pharmaceutical company marketers that choose to use Influence Network Sampling will be better able to proactively drive positive sentiment, engagement, results, and return on investment."
Influence Network Sampling is now available from One Eleven Software. For more information contact Janet Carlson, C.E.O., One Eleven Software, at 860.672.0043 x111 or [email protected] or Bonnie Rishell, C.E.O., ROI(2), Inc. at 800.714.8329 or [email protected].
