Zephyr Illuminate is a unique platform that successfully collects and connects information from internal customer data, vendor data, and publically available information.

In addition, this solution analyzes the acquired data to create actionable insights for multiple stakeholders across the pharmaceutical commercialization life cycle, including medical affairs, sales, and marketing requirements.
Zephyr Illuminate's Relationship Analytics functionality offers customer-focused solutions that navigate provider networks to identify potential referrals, accounts, and prescribing physicians based on factors such as referral relationships, geographic proximity, shared patients, and therapy-specific relationships. Another feature of the solution, Provider Market Access, uses market access data reports from leading healthcare market data providers to improve account planning, customer engagement, and overall sales effectiveness by analyzing formulary data for commercial teams.
Zephyr Health also partners with complementary service providers to offer a seamless product experience that allows the platform to integrate with customers' pre-existing CRM vendor systems. Zephyr Illuminate provides a consistent view of a customer (such as a healthcare provider or organization) across the client's departments, eliminating the issues that go along with data siloes. The company's solution delivers accurate operational recommendations based on its proprietary algorithms that empower life sciences customers to make more valuable business decisions via an easily accessible, cloud-based platform.
"Zephyr Health has built a unique platform that is intuitive and easy to integrate with existing sales and marketing tools, leading to higher market acceptance and financial viability," said Neelotpal Goswami.
