Capturing Custom Text

  • iPad
  • Online

To provide a fuller picture of users’ interactions with HCPs and capture important information about product transactions, users can enter additional product information in a custom text field for the following product transactions:

  • receiving product shipments
  • creating a product transfer, adjustment, or return
  • recording a call

For example, Sarah Jones disburses two packages of co-pay cards to Dr. Ackerman during a visit. On the call report, Sarah inputs the range of BIN numbers for the packages to track which HCPs receive which co-pay cards.
