What do you need to know today?
Traditional information sources are “commodities”, accessible to everyone, anytime. Access to this type of information is easy and most often overwhelming – and difficult to make sense of. Sometimes, the information is inexistent. In both cases, it is useless to you, and do not provide a meaningful competitive edge.
Focused, tailor-designed research from primary sources provides an intelligent solution to solve issues that are unique to you and your organization.
Access to relevant and timely industry-specific intelligence is a must in today’s ultra-competitive environment.

A typical project begins with discussions between our client and Arx’s project lead. Once the objectives of the research are outlined, Arx staff will develop survey instruments, and deploy invitations in order to collect data from our database of contacts. We then manage the responses and start analyzing the collected information to derive the findings. These findings are then delivered to our client for internal use. The project timeline is driven by the scope and complexity of the topic to research and is determined after the first conversation with the client.
For commercial field teams: Pharmaceutical companies are increasingly using survey feedback from physicians to assess how best to interact with them. Recent research shows only half of physicians actually feel they benefit from interacting with sales representatives. It is time to better understand their needs, preferences and expectations – after all, they are advocates in product adoption. This type of survey can be done with the actual company roster of physicians (the ones on the sales reps call lists) or done at large, to gauge the landscape.
For Medical Science Liaisons: Thought leaders are in demand and their influence toward the physician communities, their involvement in research and expertise for counsel is of utmost value to life sciences. This type of survey usually consists of reaching out to existing thought leader contacts with which MSLs interact.
Our approach equips clients with the unique fact-base information they need to address strategic questions about their business: How can I grow? What actions can be made to increase value? How are global industry factors impacting my function?
Typical benchmarking projects involves on site review of processes and interview with stakeholders. Once the “actual” picture is established, Arx staff sets out to inquire about similar processes at competing entities to enable a comparative assessment baseline. Best practices are then determined and Arx staff then works with the client to enact a plan of corrective actions.
