Control Associates Helps Customer Gain Knowledge & Insights by Socializing Its Alarm Data—Beyond the Control System

In pharmaceutical companies, alarms are critical to the health of a room—and the viability of the product being manufactured there. Alarms, as part of the Control System, provide detailed information such as what day, time, how long, and if there was any product being made in that room when the alarms occurred. However, the Control System is typically in a separate room or secure part of the facility, where not everyone can have access to it—for many good reasons. But what if others can benefit from access to some of the data or the amalgamation of that data?

To address this challenge, the Control Associates Data Management team created an integration between the Control System and the industry’s widely accepted Data Historian tool.

Sales and Marketing: A Formidable Alliance

Historically, sales and marketing teams are not always on the same page. For salespeople, their objective is to get their products/services/solutions into the hands of their customers. Marketers, on the other hand, want to get the ‘idea’ of using or adopting the product into the minds of potential customers. You don’t always see these functions working together because their end goals are different; however, when sales and marketing organizations put aside their differences and collaborate, the results can be staggering. Experts report that aligning these functions can result in a 50% bump in your win rate.

To reap the benefits of an ideal Sales/Marketing partnership, you need to agree on some key elements:

The Target Audience and How They Purchase

Agree on who you are targeting and ‘how’ the customer decides to purchase your solution, known as their buying journey. The best way to determine your ideal customer is to map out ideal buyer characteristics. When related to the company, they are known as firmographics and for individuals, personas. Once this is determined, it will make it much easier to target your desired customers—whether they are current customers who could potentially buy more from you, or completely new customers. If your audience is technical, scientific, or engineering inclined, then they likely have some buying behaviors that have moved to the digital realm, while others may still desire a personal touch.

They wanted to go beyond a post-batch analysis in order to compare current batches with their ideal batch—at any point in the process. To accomplish this, Control Associates needed to first store the golden batch data and then develop a way that allowed this customer to perform ad hoc reporting—on demand and on the fly.
