Archi-Tech Systems and the Adobe Flash Platform Turn Raw Pharma Data into Meaningful Insights

We all know that it’s hard to make sense of complicated data. Archi-Tech Systems has been provided pharmaceutical companies with the ability to turn that information into customized, convenient systems for the past 20 years. They wanted to create something new and innovative that would work for the entire pharmaceutical sales organization, from the vice president of sales down to the field rep and managed care sales force. Archi-Tech used the Adobe Flash Platform to develop and launch InView Plus, a web-based dashboard for point-and-click data visualization.

Built with Flex and Adobe Flash Builder, this data-rich solution helps sales and marketing teams to track activities, goals, and results in real time. Both products equip Archi-Tech’s development team with scalability, flexibility, and standardization, streamlining development and simplified maintenance that resulted in significant cost savings for them and their clients.

Flex also added to the performance and consistent uptime, presenting Archi-Tech’s clients with a more intuitive interface and rich, visually engaging experiences.

One of Archi-Tech’s client’s, Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals, a world leader in the global household, health and personal care sectors, successfully uses InView Plus to empower its own healthcare sales organization, which resulted in more targeted sales plans, increased productivity and better insight into market share and sales opportunities.

Archi-Tech plans on using the Adobe Flash Platform to push InView Plus to mobile devices and tablets. Read more about InView Plus and how they collaborated with Adobe technologies here.
