At Akkroo, we strive to reduce the gap between a lead becoming a client. We do this by enabling businesses to collect event leads effectively, securely and allow them to act on the information immediately. That’s why we work with organisations from across the world in the biomedical and pharmaceutical industry.

Events play a key role in the pharmaceutical and biomedical industries. From small congresses and local conferences to huge global trade shows, events are a crucial factor in generating leads for these businesses.

For most businesses, the process of planning, collecting and taking action with leads at events will look something like:

  • Marketing or Events team book the event and organize logistics
  • Sales Reps attend the event to network and gather leads
  • Lead capture will normally consist of all or some of the following:
    • Collecting business cards, the classic goldfish bowl approach
    • Using paper lead forms
    • Or, for bigger events, scanning badges using lead retrieval devices
  • Post event, the stack of business cards, folder of paper forms or generic spreadsheet of badge scans will then eventually (if at all), make it’s way back to the Marketing / Events team
  • They then begin the arduous, manual task of inputting these leads into the CRM or Marketing Automation system before the post-event follow up can take place. This can often take days or even weeks. If it happens at all!
