For Pharma Companies, Launching Multiple Similar Products Can Be a "Good Problem" but Requires Smart Resourcing
Date:5/3/2013

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., May 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In a healthcare market where even the largest pharma manufacturers must squeeze revenue from every product in the portfolio, some companies are confronted with the "good problem" of having a rich pipeline featuring multiple new products. 

But launching and promoting each new product is both costly (hiring and training new "people resources" such as field sales reps) and strategically challenging (effectively positioning similar products).  To succeed in this critical task, healthcare commercial leaders and brand managers have in many cases begun to embrace a franchise approach to promoting similar products.

According to new research from Best Practices, LLC, a franchise approach is paying tangible dividends for many companies, enabling franchise users to cut overall promotional costs, boost efficiencies across product support teams, and accrue the reputational benefits of being seen as a treatment leader in a given therapeutic area.

For example, our latest research reveals that:

  • The highest net franchise cost savings come in reducing average sales force size & training (58% of franchises), increasing sales force effectiveness (57%), and enhanced customer targeting (57%).
  • 74% of franchises effectively removed redundancies in customer targeting, enabling greater rep effectiveness during key lifecycle stages – keeping territories smaller and shrinking rep-to-customer ratios during launch.
  • From a risk perspective, the chances for launch failure within a franchise expand exponentially when multiple launches occur within a short window (i.e., less than 6 months).  Poor rep execution in messaging and product differentiation is the greatest liability in rapid multiple launches.
