Pharma

Bpm’online pharma functionality is designed to efficiently schedule the med reps' visits to doctors and pharmacies, build routes on the map, manage the visit activities and assist med reps during the visits.

Attention

This function is unavailable for the Oracle DBMS.

How pharma functionality can be used by a med rep

Use a mobile device with the bpm’online application installed during your visits. After selecting the required visit in the calendar, you will be transferred to the visit page, which will display the visit action list and switches for each action.

During a visit, bpm’online will prompt the required steps. For example, when performing the [Presentation] action, the screen will automatically display a presentation of new products, etc.

During a visit, you can add orders based on visit results, create a list of products and their number and write down stock keeping unit (SKU) monitoring results and product facing check results. Visits are covered in a separate article.
