Contact centre services

Our contact centres are an innovative, cost-effective and increasingly popular way for pharmaceutical and healthcare companies to target customers in a more holistic way

Increasing sales and driving brand awareness

Medical contact centres typically involve highly trained sales reps interacting with healthcare professionals via phone (tele-detailing) or a web-based platform (interactive e-detailing). These channels can be implemented at any stage of the product lifecycle to complement your field teams, reinforce product messages, reach hard-to-access areas and promote mature brands without additional field reps.


Since 2011 Ashfield has been the trusted and experienced international contact centre partner of choice, bringing our clients responsive, multichannel services that are proven to grow sales and promote brand awareness.

Contact centre services:

At Ashfield we offer a comprehensive suite of contact centre services, including:

  • Tele-Detailing

    Trained reps interacting with healthcare professionals over the phone to educate customers and promote products.
  • Interactive E-Detailing

    Like tele-detailing, but these reps communicate with healthcare professionals via a web-based platform in order to share visual information on products.
  • Hybrid Representatives

    Multi-skilled reps working effectively across larger territories by using a blend of communications channels, including face-to-face meetings, tele-detailing and interactive e-detailing.
  • Stakeholder Mapping

    Desk-based research to identify key targets and information gathering on channel preference and best times to call – all informing the optimum targeting and channel strategy to reach customers effectively.
  • Concierge

    A great asset to sales teams, the concierge service sets appointments, takes requests for promotional material, recruits healthcare professionals to meetings and does a lot of the background work that allows reps to get on and do what they do best.
  • Customer Service

    Expert customer service teams handle customer queries, process product orders and reinforce positive experience of the brand, helping to ensure long-term customer satisfaction and retention.
  • Medical Information

    Medical Information is a 24/7 service that provides vital product and safety information. These highly trained teams are the voice of clients and are skilled at resolving issues.
  • Patient Support

    Just as you can interact with healthcare professionals via web and phone, you can also use these channels to communicate with patients, provide personalised treatment support and improve adherence
