  • Promotional Analytics

    Trinity excels at designing and operationalizing promotional strategy driven by each client’s overall brand, portfolio and corporate strategy. Taking an integrated approach to personal and non-personal promotion, Trinity has the experience to develop a validated, fact-based solution tailored to each business situation.

    Promotional Mix Modeling and Optimization

    Measuring the relative ROI across a life science company’s many promotional channels is extremely complex because of the unique importance and scale of sales promotional efforts and the need to promote to 3 distinct audiences (patient, provider and payer)—as well as the differences in sales and marketing promotional activities and measurement across different countries.

    Trinity uses a unique approach to optimize promotional mix that leverages TGaS industry benchmarks, cross-functional stakeholder discussions across the client organization and analytical rigor.

    Trinity’s Promotional Mix Modeling offering builds on brand and market context to provide a comprehensive, nuanced view of complex omnichannel analytics across life sciences sales and marketing initiatives.  Our experts evaluate relative ROI, identify areas of waste or opportunity and benchmark each client’s impact and resourcing with their peers.  We handle the legwork to ascertain and compile the relevant data from internal and external sources, deliver commercially-focused analysis and contextualized insights, identify recommended actions and help to implement those changes.

    Promotional Mix Modeling clients are able to:

    • Compare different Sales & Marketing tactics of varying investment levels to see which are most productive
    • Contextualize their marketing team structure, expenditure and performance against peers
    • Evaluate the impact of the changes they’ve made on ROI
    • Gain insight from industry experts, data scientists and advanced analytic modeling tools powered by Trinity Analytics (seasonality, variable transformations, adstock effect modeling, promotion response curves, s-curves, simulators for testing various scenarios, etc.)
    • Leverage TGaS industry benchmarks to enhance marketplace understanding, justify changes in investment and assess not only how each channel performs—but how that performance compares with peers
    • Optimize their marketing investments and customer engagement across promotional channels (social listening/engagement, digital strategies, personal promotion, etc.)
    • Support recommended actions and implementations with Trinity expertise

    Field Team Structure, Sizing and Alignment

    Trinity helps clients determine the optimal size, structure and deployment of their field team(s) to target the desired customer universe of patients, providers and/or payers. Common challenges to field team sizing include an unclear customer universe and cookie-cutter field team planning solutions. Trinity’s deep understanding of life sciences data and flexible phased approach provides customized, tailored field team plans, insights, alerts and suggestions.

    Our approach includes:

    • Benchmarking—leveraging proprietary TGaS data
    • Field Force Recommendation Engine—activating opportunity and promotional orchestrations with AIML-enabled Next Best Action/Next Best Engagement
    • Flexible Deployment Options—configure and surface suggestions via existing field facing platforms or with Trinity’s Rep Assist application
    • Marginal Return on Investment—assessing where potential may limit return on coverage
    • Predictive Targeting and Segmentation—predicting, pinpointing and prioritizing the most valuable customers and the best methods of engagement
    • Reach & Frequency—providing workload assumptions and universe sizing

    Alongside field force planning, Trinity works with clients to determine what accounts/HCPs to target in markets of interest for attainment of sales forecast and alignment with the short- and long-term strategic objectives of the organization. Trinity’s approach of triangulating traditional deciling, market research and advanced analytics incorporates a holistic view of our customers’ strategic objectives.

    Incentive Compensation Plan Design and Administration

    Siloed approaches to plan design and broader corporate selling strategy—combined with the lack of an end-to-end administration solution that is flexible, scalable and well-documented—often prevent life sciences companies from realizing their true potential.

    Trinity has extensive experience in incentive compensation (IC) plan design and administration for customer-facing teams. Our expertise in commercial strategy and operations allows for a holistic approach to motivational IC plan design that drives sales objectives.  Our approach includes a dynamic rollout process and supporting communication plan, as well as the delivery of actionable plan results to representatives and proactive assessment of the plan performance.

    Our proprietary IC administration tool provides a structured, user-friendly solution to meet each client’s needs. Administering an IC plan can be complex and time-consuming—structured IC administration allows for a robust, flexible process with consumable outputs and actionable analytics.  Our team of IC experts uses the most current technology to manage, process and deliver each client’s plan results.
