Vivus is a small pharmaceutical company headquartered in Mountain View, California, working in obesity, sleep, and sexual health. Vivus is developing an erectile dysfunction drug, Avanafil, that has completed Phase 3 clinical trials. The drug has been approved for use by the FDA, and will be sold under the trademark name Stendra. Stendra is the first and only oral ED treatment approved to be taken approximately 15 minutes before sexual activity.
A documentary movie "Orgasm Inc." was made at Vivus in 2009 to document the process of creating a treatment for Female sexual arousal disorder.
Vivus also developed an obesity drug, Qnexa, a combination of phentermine and topiramate, two existing weight-loss drugs. On July 17, 2012, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Qsymia, made by Vivus, as an addition to a reduced-calorie diet and exercise for chronic weight management. The drug was approved for use in adults with a body mass index, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol.
NPS is a customer loyalty metric that measures customers’ willingness to not only return for another purchase or service but also make a recommendation to their family, friends or colleagues.
It is a powerful and effective technique, which can greatly increase a company's revenue if used properly.
The main advantages of NPS are close correlation with a company's growth and easy collection, interpretation and communication of the data.
Yes, it is.
Net Promoter Score is a number from -100 from 100.
Scores higher than 0 are typically considered to be good and scores above 50 are considered to be excellent.
The industry average for Health Care / Major Pharmaceuticals is 0.
The final Net Promoter Score of a company strongly depends on a context in which the satisfaction is measured.
Consider an example: If VIVUS, Inc. sends out NPS surveys immediately after purchase, they are tracking their customers' initial excitement and the checkout experience.
On the other hand, if they survey their customers a few weeks after the purchase they are also tracking how satisfied their customers are with their products and services over time.
Therefore, comparing the NPS score of VIVUS, Inc. with your own without any further context is not that useful.
What is extremely useful though, is using the NPS methodology to track the satisfaction of your customers over time. That's where Customer.guru comes in.
