Viscira®, a leading provider of new-media communication solutions and interactive software applications for the life sciences industry, announced today the release of its new Online Speaker Portal (OSP) for clients. This secure web software platform serves as a robust communication hub for pharmaceutical product speakers, allowing them to easily access all the resources and tools needed to make their peer-to-peer, educational presentations effective and engaging.
A key component of the portal is Viscira’s Interactive Presentation Builder (IPB) tool, which provides users with the ability to create and save custom presentations, subject to medical and regulatory restrictions, through an intuitive, drag-and-drop interface.
Beyond the IPB, Viscira has also integrated a number of supplemental, innovative features within the platform to provide additional value for users including: announcements, polls, discussion threads, a document library, on-demand video or audio speaker training modules, etc. Many of these components have been re-engineered to take advantage of web 2.0 functionality.
Additionally, the Viscira OSP includes unique social networking capabilities that promote communication and collaboration between users, enabling clients to build a stronger community of quality speakers for a product and deeper relationships with physician opinion leaders.
“We are excited to offer our customers an advanced online speaker portal solution that incorporates the latest technology and distinctive features, while still remaining very user-friendly,” explains Rick Barker, Chief Operating Officer of Viscira. “Our OSP is a highly flexible, expandable platform that we will continue to enhance to meet evolving client needs.”
The Online Speaker Portal is just one of many innovative, interactive software applications and new-media solutions the company offers, which range from Viscira’s Interactive Presentation Builder (IPB) tool to 3D mechanism-of-action (MOA) animations to interactive visual aids and other iPad applications. Viscira’s strategic approach, combined with its delivery of cutting-edge products, has resulted in an impressive roster of industry-leading clients, including Amgen, Johnson & Johnson, Genentech, Pfizer, Novartis and Eli Lilly.
