TORONTO, Sept. 17, 2019 - ACTO and Teleflex's Vascular Division won a coveted Brandon Hall Group Bronze award for excellence in the "Best Advance in Learning Technology Implementation" category for their groundbreaking efforts to improve sales performance. The ACTO and Teleflex case study demonstrates the commercial success that life sciences companies can achieve after implementing new technology to gather field data and streamline their commercialization processes.
"This award is a testament to Teleflex's visionary leadership in recognizing the importance of learning and development in life sciences' renewed industry landscape," said Parth Khanna, CEO of ACTO, "With all the changes we are seeing right now in the industry, Teleflex had the vision to engage their sales force through digital transformation, and were able to execute seamlessly on their commercial strategy. As a result, they have been able to drive commercial outcomes through learning, a landmark achievement for Teleflex and the industry at large."
"Teleflex had a product that was underperforming for over a year. In just one quarter, we have exceeded our sales targets after launching modules through ACTO," said Jacqueline Cronin, Senior Marketing Manager, Vascular at Teleflex, "ACTO has been a game-changer for our company. We were looking for a way to engage our entire sales force, particularly legacy reps, and provide them with a continuous learning experience. ACTO was a true partner in helping us redesign our training, and track what our top reps are doing to create a blueprint for success. They have been instrumental in ensuring that the field adopted our new sales process, and gave our reps tools and learnings to increase their proficiencies."
