PROBLEM

The need for event information now, not 48 hours from now

Henry Schein’s Practice Solutions division had several issues with its previous webinar platforms, but the most critical problem was its inability to get event reporting in a timely manner. Often, the division had to wait up to 48 hours to get details on who attended an event and how engaged they were with the event’s content. This time lag held the division’s pipeline activities back, meaning marketing managers couldn’t pass leads to the sales teams in a timely manner.

Henry Schein’s Practice Solutions division had several issues with its previous webinar platforms, but the most critical problem was its inability to get event reporting in a timely manner. Often, the division had to wait up to 48 hours to get details on who attended an event and how engaged they were with the event’s content. This time lag held the division’s pipeline activities back, meaning marketing managers couldn’t pass leads to the sales teams in a timely manner.

 

The organization was also missing out on detailed viewer behavior analytics. It couldn’t track individual viewer activity in the webinar, making it difficult to distinguish hot leads from cold prospects. Additionally, the on-demand viewing options were nearly non-existent. The division received an MP4 file of its completed webcasts, sure, but those video files were limited to YouTube and Vimeo posts. There was no information on who watched the YouTube video and no way to turn these viewers into leads. The company lacked engagement-rich on-demand viewing. It needed a new solution.

The ON24 platform’s on-demand capabilities are a huge differentiator. With our previous platforms, we only received an MP4 file of our webcast when it was over, which we would post on YouTube. But there was no way to track who viewed it. With ON24, we get instant and detailed reporting of on-demand viewers, so now we can also turn this audience into leads and revenue.”
