07 Jul 2020

Company Description: A major pharma manufacturer and marketer in India
Opportunity: The client intended to accelerate sales in the region by:
  • Estimating increasing Field Force Efficiency (FFE), benchmarking it against competitors and mitigating causes of concern
  • Benchmarking sales and marketing budget against competitors
Our approach
  • Market visits across randomly selected locations in 10 metro and Tier-I cities for assessing availability, visibility and sales of major SKUs
  • Interview and behavior observation of 50+ Distributors Sales Representatives (DSRs)
  • DSR shadowing to assess market dynamics like brand pull, retailer and patient attitudes and key demand factors for the brand
  • 30+ Medical Representatives (MRs) interviews to assess practitioner attitude and brand pull 
  • Study of annual sales and marketing budget for top selling SKUs 
  • Competitive benchmarking of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for DSRs, MRs and marketing team   

Praxis value delivered
  • Budgeted sales and marketing value is optimal – the utilization for Field Force (FF) needs to be better designed 
  • Designed a competitive incentive plan for DSRs to ensure higher productivity (calls per day) and ample stock availability
  • Revamped DSR beat plan to increase non-chemists time; also restructured the typical MR day plan to increase the share of institutional visits
