“The continued digital transformation of the life sciences industry is of critical importance for both patients and care providers because it is the key to improving therapeutic development, time to market and better patient outcomes.

Most recently, Kurzeja was instrumental in designing, implementing and supporting commercial infrastructure initiatives at Kyowa Kirin and Biotech Startup, BioXcel Therapeutics.

The appointment of Steve Kurzeja as chief revenue officer comes just as P360 announced that its ZING Communication Module has been enhanced with several new enterprise-grade unified communication features. Not only does the ZING unified communications as a service (UCaaS) platform enable life sciences sales teams to send custom branded, templated SMS text messages and other digital assets to healthcare professionals (HCPs), it now features two-way calling, activity tracking, smart automations, flexible integrations and more.
With the ZING UCaaS platform, life sciences sales reps can exchange compliant two-way unified messaging with healthcare professionals without barriers. There are no apps for end-users to download and there are no subscriptions for them to deal with. To HCPs, ZING offers a seamless, hassle-free experience that’s seen as nothing different than their normal method for receiving texts.
ZING is the HCP engagement solution the pharmaceutical industry has been waiting for. Within the first six months of launch, over 50 pharmaceutical organizations have expressed interest in ZING, including each of the top 10 global companies – with five of them currently engaging in deployment discussions.
