Pharmaceutical Industry Leader Optimizes Resource Allocation with Right-Size Salesforce

 coverSituation:
A privately held medical device innovator severely underpenetrated the market with competitors looking to join and steal market share. The company is a category leader with minimal competition due to early entry and FDA approval.
