Delivering a superior healthcare professional (HCP) experience requires personalization at scale - driven by sharp marketing strategy and technology involvement. The right MarTech stack and processes can help you save not just time and automate processes, but also help you understand your customers better
Unfortunately, the majority of life sciences organizations struggle with low levels of MarTech stack utilization. They also face issues with the relevance of their existing MarTech technologies and alignment with commercial goals. Very often, they miss out on the seamless interlinkages between various technologies - and compromise on maintaining the integrity and connect with the larger customer experience (CX) vision
A recent report by Gartner shows that marketing organizations still utilize only 58% of their MarTech stack's full breadth of capabilities. The result is a siloed MarTech stack that makes it difficult for business functions to work together to get a data-driven, seamless, and personalized CX. This has a direct impact on the customer satisfaction and engagement of target HCP audiences.

All these challenges lead global life sciences organizations to a "Ferrari" dilemma around their MarTech stack. They end up making large investments, but use only a fraction of those – and often find themselves facing this question – "Should me optimize my existing capabilities or Should me invest in new ones." This is the equivalent of having the budget to buy a high value and worthy investment like a Ferrari, but not having the skill or noledge to drive it.
