Introducing Aktana Copilot
Aktana today announced Aktana Copilot, a mobile AI assistant for life sciences users based on Tact.ai technology. Aktana Copilot is designed specifically to meet the needs of field staff and medical-scientific liaisons, giving these users market and HCP information at the moment they need it.
Field teams receive real-time, programmable and intelligent alerts on mobile devices to simplify call scheduling and better personalize and coordinate activities. Additionally, the recommendations are presented throughout the user experience through conversational AI, saving valuable time that can be used to build relationships with doctors.
With Aktana Copilot, customers can capture richer and more tailored interaction data, enabling Aktana AI to create more contextual and effective recommendations for users to drive better conversations. The dynamic feedback loop improves time-to-value because the speed at which recommendations improve, so does campaign performance.
“With today’s announcements, we deepen our commitment to transforming customer loyalty programs for life sciences companies of all sizes,” said Derek Choy, founder and chief product officer of Aktana. “The Strategy Suite , which we introduced at the Aktana Innovation Exchange last month, is expanded with Aktana Copilot, providing a real-time connection between business leaders and the field. This can be used to gain feedback from practice on tactics that are impacting their HCPs and to guide practice toward tactics proven to have the greatest impact.”
Aktana Copilot is already available worldwide today and will be expanded by 2024 for specific use cases in the pharmaceutical, medical affairs and medical device sectors. Aktana will also offer Microsoft Teams users a version of Tact Presenter, which is the only Microsoft Teams certified remote detailer for Veeva content.
