NEW YORK, Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Genpact Limited (NYSE: G), a global leader in transforming and running business processes and operations, today announced it was named a Leader in IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Life Science Sales and Marketing BPO 2013 Vendor Assessment (Doc #HI243884) October 2013.
Genpact secured its spot among the Leaders due to its account management proficiency, technical skills and the overall value it delivers to its clients, according to accolades from multiple client references. These capabilities are particularly important due to the global volatility of the life sciences business environment and the intense competition among life science companies around the world.
IDC considered the following when evaluating the life science service providers profiled in its 2013 sales and marketing BPO vendor assessment report:
Breadth of life science sales and marketing services offered, depth of related project experience, and number of customers the vendor has served
Geographical footprint and global delivery capabilities, level of priority and focus by the vendor in the life science sales and marketing sector, and the vendor's pace of investment in related life science capabilities
Life science industry expertise, corporate financial stability, and willingness to contract with clients under a risk/profit-sharing contract model
Client references to examine vendor capabilities surrounding project management, IT technical skills, account management, and overall value delivery to clients
As Eric Newmark, program director of IDC Health Insights' Commercial Life Science research and the author of this reportnotes, "Many companies are now expanding BPO beyond traditional barriers and expanding into knowledge based areas that have traditionally been less outsourced. Knowledge process outsourcing (KPO) such as analytics, business intelligence, and predictive modeling are all examples of new areas of increasing interest for life science companies…These services can help companies obtain increased insight in a quicker fashion from big data that has traditionally been underutilized. If you are looking for assistance in selecting a third-party service provider for sales and marketing BPO, the guidance provided in this IDC MarketScape is a great place to start."
"Genpact is proud to have secured a Leader position on IDC's worldwide list of top sales and marketing BPO service providers to the life science industry," said BK Kalra, senior vice president, Consumer Goods, Retail and Life Sciences, Genpact. "Today's life sciences companies are facing monumental challenges including escalating costs, expiring patents, declining sales, rising competition, shrinking R&D pipelines, increasing regulatory compliance requirements, and insurance company price controls. Our sales and marketing services offerings are laser focused on empowering life science companies with the strategic and tactical modeling, productivity, and analytics they require for full lifecycle go-to-market initiatives and in turn allowing them to focus on innovation and invest in R&D which is core to their business."
