Solutions for Pharmaceutical Companies

Solutions for individuals to enterprises

The process of getting pharmaceutical products to market depends on collecting and retaining a large number of signatures. For clinical trials, sales and sample management, KOL agreements, and a wide variety of compliance processes, obtaining signatures on paper is highly inefficient, fraught with errors, and puts you at risk. Use DocuSign to streamline these processes, reduce costs to your business, and improve your compliance stance.

Improve sales and sample management

From PDMA (Prescription Drug Marketing Association) to HIPAA to 21CFR part 11, there are strict requirements that govern pharmaceutical sampling. Maintaining signatures manually is time-consuming and costly. Sales teams can gather signatures online or from any device. Automated reminders replace manual calls, and DocuSign provides complete audit reporting, audit trail, and retention capabilities.
