Polaris aligns its compliance solutions with Veeva OpenData customer data
AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS – 08 Sept., 2015 – Polaris, a leading European provider of compliance solutions for life sciences, today announced that it has joined the Veeva OpenData Partner Program, a partner ecosystem that makes it easy for life sciences companies to access and maximise their customer data. The partnership aligns Polaris’ Healthcare Provider Interaction Portal (HIP) and its transparency reporting solution (STAR), with Veeva OpenData customer data solutions to deliver a more complete, efficient, and accurate compliance solution.
Veeva OpenData is a bold new approach to providing life sciences companies with customer data for healthcare professionals (HCPs), healthcare organisations (HCOs), and affiliations with consistent standards for quality and service.
Currently, life sciences companies rely upon multiple systems to manage customer data across European markets, making it difficult to accurately track HCP payments and manage spend reporting. “As regulatory pressures grow, the need for timely, accurate, and seamless customer data and compliance solutions has become an industry imperative,” said Geert van Gansewinkel, managing partner, Polaris, Europe. “Polaris’ expertise in compliance supplements the complete, high-quality customer data that Veeva OpenData offers to the industry. We are confident this partnership will deliver faster, more accurate and efficient compliance solutions for life sciences companies.”
Key benefits of the partnership to life sciences companies include:
- Greater compliance with local, cross border and global reporting requirements, as spend is reconciled against uniquely identified customers
- A centrally unified environment or database to manage end-to-end spend transparency that mitigates risk of data flaws and multiple system dependencies
- Real-time access to accurate and complete customer data delivered through cloud-based technologies
“We are excited to partner with European compliance market leaders such as Polaris to best support our customers’ compliance management needs at a time that’s most crucial,” said Guillaume Roussel, Veeva’s director of European strategy for Veeva OpenData. “This partnership offers life sciences companies a more complete solution, combining compliance workflow and transparency reporting from Polaris with accurate, continually updated customer data and validation from Veeva OpenData.”
