Life Sciences firms have witnessed an explosion in available data sources. The chief catalyst for the proliferation of data within the health care and life sciences industry is the Internet of Things, specifically personal digital care devices. The wearable devices serve many purposes, from monitoring daily fitness activity to measuring glucose levels. For pharmaceutical companies, these devices are an efficient way of administering clinical trials.Instead of patients going to the hospital numerous times throughout the trial for health monitoring, patients can simply wear a digital device that captures all of the pertinent information.

The digital revolution is altering how organizations conduct customer service. Gone are the days of businesses relying solely on manual, in-person customer service delivery. The major impetus to adopt a more dynamic and technically driven method of customer service is from the customers themselves. They are demanding modern and convenient ways of accessing their information and communicating with organizations. Pension agencies are not exempt from this external pressure to modernize their customer service delivery model. Therefore, many pension organizations are integrating a member web portal (MWP) with their benefit management solution. (To learn about how one of our clients is benefiting from a MWP, stay tuned for a future blog post that delves into the tangible business benefits that this client is experiencing).
