The iPad Pro – A Pharma sales reps best friend

The iPad Pro is the perfect tablet for the modern day Pharmaceutical sales representative.  In a time where Apple seem to be struggling with creativity, they have managed to release an iPad that’s perfect for the needs of a mobile sales rep. You’ll no longer need a laptop or PC!

These days sales aids come in interactive visual forms; gone are the days of paper aids and folders full of longwinded content. In order to maximise the impact of media and visual sales assets, the 12.9″ pro gives you a great platform to present from and make your experience in the field truly greater than the average rep.

What’s the need for a swanky new iPad anyway?

These days sales aids come in interactive visual forms; gone are the days of paper aids and folders full of longwinded content. In order to maximise the impact of media and visual sales assets, the 12.9″ pro gives you a great platform to present from and make your experience in the field truly greater than the average rep.

There is also a 9.7″ version of the Pro for those of you that like a more ergonomic tablet design for easy transportation and storage but I’d have to say it’s a shame to lose the viewing capabilities of the larger version for the sake of minimal size preferences.

Take a look at the 12.9″ display spec: 

  • Retina display
  • 12.9-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit Multi-Touch display
  • 2732×2048 resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi)
  • Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating
  • Fully laminated display
  • Anti-reflective coating

Spotting the opportunity 

While working closely over a few years with Jazz Pharmaceutical we began to notice their growing need for Congrego. With an ever increasing number of sales representatives in different locations, it was clear our survey software, enterprising content management, training assets, and iPad file management features were exactly what they needed to grow and develop further in the healthcare industry.

  • Make an accessible system via web and tablet – use one version of content
  • Allow the ability to add time stamps and remotely lock content Allow ability to natively manage HTML5, PDF, PPT, DOC and Video
  • Provide a totally new approach to product support and message delivery
  • The ability to save money by training employees and communicating with them without the hassle of travel and taking time out of the day
  • Be able to create surveys and presentations and receive analytic reviews at your request
