Santa Monica, Calif., October 3, 2011– Reprints Desk, Inc.® along with the Center for Business Intelligence (CBI) have opened online registration for a free webinar for life sciences procurement professionals at 10:00am EDT on Tuesday, October 18th. The webinar, featuring Reprints Desk’s Global Sales Director and former AstraZeneca procurement professional Armand Brevig, will identify how fragmented purchasing of millions of dollars for journal article reprints occurs each year by marketing and sales departments within life science companies. It will also examine benefits for procurement teams to target this hidden spend category by working with an article supply company. Procurement professionals can register online at www.cbinet.com/webinar/ec11584.
Mr. Brevig stated, "Spending on clinical reprints by Pharmaceutical and Medical Device companies can reach into the tens of millions of dollars each year. This marketing spend may increase dramatically with growing sales force adoption of new technologies such as the iPad and continued investment in apps and online portals for healthcare professionals (HCPs), across both mature and emerging markets.”
Scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles are important educational tools for healthcare professionals, helping them to understand new therapies and stay current on changing standards of care. HCPs access journal articles through subscriptions and libraries, discovery tools such as PubMed, alerting services, and through the sales, marketing, and medical affairs channels of Life Science companies. Reprints Desk improves how journal articles and clinical reprints are accessed, procured, and legally used in evidence-based promotions and scientific, technical, and medical (STM) research. To register for the webinar, visit CBI online at www.cbinet.com/webinar/ec11584. For more information about Reprints Desk, visit: www.reprintsdesk.com.
