VIQUA Adds Photoregister Mobile Solution for Faster, More Accurate Customer Data and Insight

DENVER, CO—(Marketwired – June 06, 2017) – VIQUA, the world's largest supplier of residential and light commercial UV water disinfection systems, has joined forces with Registria to offer Photoregister℠ as a new mobile customer onboarding and product registration solution for its systems. By replacing traditional paper registration cards with a mobile solution that uses native mobile functions like text and the camera, VIQUA will quickly gain more accurate customer data, and ensure customers receive timely information and updates on replacement parts for their systems.

Photoregister makes it easy for VIQUA customers worldwide to register their new water disinfection system. Labels with the Photoregister icon are located directly on the product, and customers simply snap a photo with their mobile device and text it to the code on the label. Customers outside the U.S. can upload the photo via a Web solution or through Facebook Messenger, making it easy to register no matter their mobile carrier or service plan.

Previously, VIQUA's paper and online product registration process included open–ended fields to collect customer information, including contact, product and purchase location, which led to challenges with data quality. With Photoregister, once a photo is sent, customers receive a link to a registration site with input fields, many of which are pre–populated based on information from the customer's mobile device. The solution also provides a customized drop–down list of local dealers – based on the customer's IP address – that they can choose from to indicate where they purchased their VIQUA system.

With a growing list of more than 1,700 dealers globally, identifying the specific location where the customer purchased their water disinfection systems from is critical for VIQUA to provide customers with helpful service for their systems. Once VIQUA knows which dealer sold a product to a customer, the company can then help dealers connect with customers to provide important annual reminders to replace the UV lamps within the disinfection system. Making the process even more seamless, Photoregister integrates directly with VIQUA's Salesforce database.

“Our customer information will come to us much more quickly and accurately, which is so important for a product line that requires regular maintenance,” said Josh Richardson, Director of Marketing for VIQUA. “We are excited about the possibilities this mobile solution will offer for maximizing our customer onboarding experience in the future.”

VIQUA has begun the initial implementation of Photoregister, and the company plans to add more onboarding features in the future to welcome customers, offer automatic renewal of replacement parts, and gather customer feedback.

MSL Team Budgets May Vary Up To $5 Million in the U.S., New Study Finds

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC—(Marketwired – June 06, 2017) – New analysis of more than a dozen pharmaceutical medical affairs teams found that medical science liaison (MSL) team spending may be as large as $5 million in the U.S.

A new study published by business intelligence firm Cutting Edge Information revealed that MSL team budgets in emerging markets tend to begin under $100,000. One team from the Middle East and North African region (MENA) reported a MSL team budget at just $75,000 during the launch year.

The data from MSL Team Management (Module 1.4) found that for most teams surveyed, MSL budgets are greatest during the product's first year on the market. While medical science liaisons are increasingly becoming important during pre–launch stages, the data show that MSLs are still most important during the launch year and first year on market.

“The most common time to increase MSL spending is between one year before launch and the launch year,” said Natalie DeMasi, research team leader at Cutting Edge Information. “These findings indicate the importance of MSLs and the overall ramp–up of MSL activity during the launch year.”

The percent change in MSL budgets over the launch window echo the same timeline of one year prior to launch and launch year. More than half (54%) of teams surveyed increase their MSL team budgets leading into the product's first year on market. However, budget increases during this time span tend to be less than increases between one year before launch and the launch year.

About 27% of surveyed teams maintain their same MSL team budget levels between launch and the product's first year on market. Only one team reported a decrease in its budget at any point, according to the study, with a 32% decline in spending between launch and the first year on market.

MSL Team Management (Module 1.4), available at–team–management/, showcases innovative insights, best practices and benchmarks surrounding MSL teams' budgets, staffing, activity start times, and key performance indicators that occur as part of medical affairs' contributions to product launch strategy. In developing this research, Cutting Edge Information's analysts collected surveys from and consulted with a series of medical affairs leaders at top pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies.

MSL Team Management is part of a 10–part series that Cutting Edge Information will be publishing throughout 2017. The Medical Affairs Product Launch Series, available at–affairs–product–launch–series/, investigates how medical affairs resources and key performance indicators (KPIs) shift between two years prior to launch, one year before launch, launch year and during the product's first year on market.

American Portfolios Assembles its Leading and Influential Investment Professionals at the Firm's 2017 Leaders Conference

HOLBROOK, NY—(Marketwired – June 06, 2017) – American Portfolios Financial Services, Inc. (APFS), a privately–held, independent broker/dealer that services financial advisors across the country, invited its top investment professionals at the 2017 Leaders Conference, held from May 18–21, in Jackson Hole, Wyo. The conference is the firm's distinctive way of recognizing those advisors and managers who demonstrated exceptional performance in business during 2016.

“The Leaders Conference acknowledges those colleagues who rose above the fray, advanced their practices and made a difference in the lives of their clients, associates, communities and families, despite existing uncertainty and turbulence within the financial services industry,” said APFS CEO Lon T. Dolber. “Corralling business leadership brings big ideas to the table; their drive and dedication is vital to the success of APFS.”

In a time of distraction and disruption within the financial services industry, APFS' choice of venue for this year's Leaders Conference was extremely purposeful. The event was held at the Four Seasons Resort in Jackson Hole, Wyo., where for three nights and four days attendees enjoyed an all–expenses paid retreat in the unspoiled wilderness and romance of the Old West. The location afforded APFS' affiliated colleagues and their guests — along with American Portfolios Advisor Council (APAC) members, AP Holdings Board Members and select senior management staff from the home office — a chance to relax, unwind and recharge in luxurious surroundings of nature.

“We look to find ways to enrich advisors' businesses and connect with those who value the relationship they've chosen with us,” said President of Sales and New Business Development Tim O'Grady. “These connection points are vital in our business, and we look forward to having many more of these types of conferences with our valued affiliated colleagues throughout the year and beyond.”

Leaders Conference attendees indulged in a bevy of pure and natural experiences surrounded by the stunning vistas of the famed Grand Teton Mountain Range, which is teeming with an inspiring array of wildlife. The three–day weekend included a mix of rustic adventure (hiking, biking, rafting, horseback riding) and luxury accommodations at one of America's finest resorts. Planned treks to neighboring Yellowstone Park and Old Faithful were mingled between opportunities to network and exchange business ideas with close colleagues, friends, APFS executives and firm focus partners.

Looking ahead, APFS is gearing up for the firm's annual national conference, Connections 2017, which will be held from Oct. 25–27 at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
