Judges commend InCrowd global instant market insights offering for life science as “a very elegant solution to the problem of getting quick insights from health care providers”
WATERTOWN MA August 17, 2022—InCrowd, the pioneer of real-time, automated insights for the life science industry and an Apollo Intelligence (Apollo) brand, was named the winner of a silver Stevie® Award in the Healthcare Technology Solution category from The 19th Annual International Business Awards® (IBA) on Monday. InCrowd’s global instant insights offering for life sciences was recognized for helping life science and healthcare companies work more efficiently, save time in new therapy development, and accelerate health innovation to improve life.
In 2010, InCrowd was the first in the life science market insights industry to enable the sourcing of healthcare insights in hours, not months. Its real-time, mobile platform allows faster decision-making and has been widely credited with originating the agile market research category in life sciences. The upgraded InCrowd global instant insights solution enables life science commercial teams in the US, Europe, and APAC to work on a global scale more efficiently. Teams can save significant time in fielding research and managing projects as they source insights from healthcare professionals (HCPs)—obtaining completed surveys in as few as 8 days, vs. 2-3 months with traditional methods. Teams gain global access to complex question types, with advanced logic, data analytics, and visualizations also designed to help boost speed-to-insight. InCrowd team members in 14 different countries across 4 continents provide service and support.
Judges in the IBA program’s Healthcare Technology Solution category called InCrowd’s global market insights platform “a very elegant solution to the problem of getting quick insights from health care providers,” and commended its “combination of ML, AI and market intelligence, and systematic approach, adapted for unbiased and most precise results for HCP worldwide.”
“Apollo Intelligence is honored that our InCrowd brand’s global, tech-enabled healthcare insights platform has won a Stevie Award,” said Daniel S. Fitzgerald, CEO and president of Apollo, parent company to InCrowd. “Obtaining unbiased and high-quality HCP insights across multiple countries is a cumbersome, slow process involving differing languages, business practices and regulations—a process that InCrowd has significantly streamlined. No other life science market research provider offers a solution integrating automated fielding to global HCPs, native translation, and automated data collection and analysis like InCrowd’s. We are delighted that the International Business Awards has so fittingly recognized InCrowd’s innovation.”
The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide—public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small—are eligible to submit nominations. The 2022 IBAs received entries from organizations in 67 nations and territories. Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 300 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process in June and July.
More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Company of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Startup of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others. This year’s competition also featured a number of new categories to recognize organizations’ and individuals’ achievements in social media and thought leadership.
“We’re thrilled that we’re able to return to celebrating Stevie winners in person this year,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Miller. “This year’s class of honorees are as innovative, adventuresome, persistent, and successful as we’ve ever had.”
Winners will be celebrated during a gala banquet at the InterContinental London Park Lane Hotel, in London, England, on Saturday, 15 October—the first live IBA awards ceremony since 2019.
