PLATFORCE VS PITCHER

Platforce vs Pitcher: the change that you need in 2024!

Why should “Platforce vs Pitcher” be on your mind?

Pitcher depends on Veeva’s Salesforce (a CRM built on Salesforce) as a foundation for customer relationship management, while adding other layers of sales enablement tools and features.

Sounds good right? Well, you must know that as of 2024, Veeva is busy rebuilding its platform and parting ways with Salesforce after years of collaboration.

This means that Pitcher’s customers will need to reconsider options moving forward. Because Pitcher is just a sales enablement platform that has been long dependent on Veeva to offer CRM capabilities, companies need to make a decision fast.

Platforce’s CRM and CLM solutions are distinctively built for pharma and life science teams. With over 10 years of experience and a resounding client portfolio, we offer customization and localized support around the globe.

Find out below why migrating to Platforce from Pitcher is a sustainable choice in 2024, especially with Veeva the CRM that Pitcher has offered as the de facto is moving off Salesforce and redoing its offer.
