CS MEDICA recruits 4 new employees to strengthen the sales department
CS MEDICA A/S (“CS MEDICA” or the “Company”) announces today that the Company has hired four persons to strengthen the sales department. Until now, the Company has mainly been characterized as an early-staged R&D-centric development company. CS MEDICA will now focus on improving enterprise sales and establishing an enterprise-ready sales organization to grow further and penetrate new markets.
With the intention to become more sales-focused, CS MEDICA has strengthened the team by hiring an additional four persons. The Company is currently in the process of transforming from mainly being an R&D-centric company, into being more sales-oriented. The additional employees will improve this effort while CS MEDICA will continue operating with a solid R&D function that allows the development of new treatment products.
We have seen a clear interest in CANNASEN® CBD products among distributors. However, we have experienced the legal approval processes by distributors being very time consuming, due to a general lack of knowledge about medical-technical products containing CBD.
Henceforth, CS MEDICA will focus on building a holistic enterprise sales organization and develop a sales strategy focusing on reducing the current time-consuming sales process. The intention is to simplify customer and distributor’s approval processes by taking into account various approval stages that have been experienced to be time-consuming. The new hires are focused on sales and sales assistance-related processes, such as bringing forward e-learning platforms for the distributors, white papers focusing on scientific and legal issues for potential distributors and scientific papers covering clinical trials. To continue penetrating the global market, it is crucial to continue strengthening and growing the CANNASEN® brand. The Company are looking to achieve this organically through word-of-mouth and product-fit marketing by using post-marketing clinical trials in cooperation with local disease organizations. To help address this strategy CS MEDICA are using their comprehensive technology platforms CIM (Clinical Information Management system) and PIM (Product Information Management system).
