What would you do with an extra 14 hours of spare time a week...?

The other half of marketing... Google


With 46% of US employees reporting that their workload is the main contributing factor towards workplace stress[1], what would you do if someone gave you an extra 14 hours a week of spare time?  Reduce your daily stress by not running from one proposal, regulatory submission or bid to the next?  Allow yourself the time to improve the quality of your work, instead of rushing to get the job done?  Give yourself a better work life balance by leaving on time to get home to your kids, go to the gym or meet friends?

Sound like a bit of dream?  Well 14 hours a week of extra time is exactly what PleaseReview has given one of our customers; a medical writer working for a biopharmaceutical company, who is responsible for the production of documentation for five major drug programmes.  Now that’s a lot of documents to write and review…

You see before they started using PleaseReview they ‘reviewed these documents in a vacuum’ without being able to see anyone else’s comments or edits, and with 20 participants involved in the process, incorporating comments and managing conflicting edits had become a real issue. 

And this outcome isn’t unique.  Ongoing evidence demonstrates that our products deliver tangible time savings – clients report savings of 50% and more in document preparation times using our solutions to improve their co-authoring and review processes.

So if this is you…

 

 

Next time remind yourself there is a better way….

A medical writer's perspective of PleaseReview

Half of the PleaseTech marketing team.


Recently we attended a conference for medical writers. Whilst there, we were visited by a medical writer who works for a US biopharmaceutical company. She is a regular user of our collaborative review and co-authoring solution, PleaseReview. It is gratifying to hear first-hand how PleaseReview helps with what can otherwise be an arduous task. From her point of view, working with others on the many documents regularly produced within both the clinical and regulatory groups means the task of consolidating everyone’s changes into one copy is a major activity- requiring time, patience and great people skills! PleaseReview has made this much easier- she no longer has to play referee, reviewers no longer operate in a vacuum and the time gained equates to significant cost savings.

We have written up a short case study detailing her experience to elaborate the benefits medical writers can expect, so if interested, please take a look

On another note, as we approach the end of the year, we continue on the theme of our Christmas countdown. Today, we celebrate the  newly expanded PleaseTech blog which is a continuation of the blog started by out CEO, Dave Cornwell, but now includes contributions from other team members and guest bloggers as well as being easy to find at www.blog.pleasetech.com.
