MOSCOW -- January 22, 2013

Cegedim Relationship Management today announced that Akrikhin has selected

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform for their Primary commercial
team.  Akrikhin enjoys a longstanding leadership position in Russia’s
pharmaceutical manufacturing sector and continues to provide outstanding

Revolutionary CRM Solution Strengthens Market Access Strategies Through Deeper
Stakeholder and Local Market Understanding
As Russia’s pharmaceutical market continues to grow due to new government
financed programs, companies must leverage CRM solutions that deliver a
holistic view of multifaceted stakeholder channels to enhance targeting and
segmentation strategies. Further, formularies and government reimbursement
determines the scope of a company’s footprint in Russia. And advancing market
access relies heavily on driving effective sales force interactions with key
healthcare decision makers. Foresight and market knowledge from third-party
data insights combined with flexible CRM tools enable companies to pursue
promising growth opportunities and rapidly react to dynamic market shifts.

Leveraging rich cloud-based technology, Mobile Intelligence empowers Akrikhin
with a 360-degree view of customer data in order to improve understanding of
customer activities, behavior, spheres of influence and key affiliation
networks. Every aspect of the solution’s comprehensive data view is supported
by the global OneKey HCP database – featuring automatic updates and cleansing
to keep data consistently fresh, complete and unique to each HCP. Empowering
Akrikhin with valuable agility in the emerging market, the flexible system
architecture affords the quick modification of marketing strategies to account
for markets shifts, such as new formulary developments or changing stakeholder
attitudes throughout Russia.

“Akrikhin leverages Mobile Intelligence and OneKey to discover the growth
potential in the Russian market,” said Stefan Janssens, President EMEA & APAC
of Cegedim Relationship Management. “Mobile Intelligence’s global flexibility
and field user functionality perfectly compliment the market knowledge derived
