Zinc Ahead is pleased to announce the launch of the Zinc Agency Awards program, designed to recognize Medical Communications agencies that are committed to the life sciences industry and excellence in the promotional and non-promotional materials development and review process.
The Agency Awards program enables Medical Communication agencies to demonstrate best practices using the Zinc MAPS suite of application for the digital asset materials review process on behalf of clients within the life sciences industry.
The Agency Awards program showcases an agency’s quality and experience credentials with a Premier, Certified, or Licensed Zinc user. Agency Award level will be based on completed and evidenced work, together with the level of certification achieved by completing Zinc’s advanced training sessions. The new ‘Zinc Approved’ award will provide accreditation to those agencies that are committed to excellence in compliance documentation. Agencies meeting the requirements for certification will be recognized on Zinc’s website.
The program will provide a unique online space for agencies to demonstrate their knowledge and showcase their experience to potential new clients in Zinc’s extensive global customer base, while motivating them to keep abreast of changes in processes, regulations, and codes of practice via comprehensive Zinc training.
Omnicom Group, one of the leading global advertising and marketing communications holding companies is among the first to join Zinc’s Agency Awards program. “We are honored to be part of the Agency Awards Program,” said Meaghan Onofrey, SVP Omnicom. “It truly validates that we are blazing a trail for how communications companies can provide best-in-class services for our clients, while maintaining flawless operations in approving and managing critical documents."
For life sciences companies, the program will provide an online resource to search for agencies with the required level of knowledge of both Zinc MAPS and the wider regulatory environment.
The idea for the Agency Awards came directly from comments Zinc was hearing from life sciences customers struggling to find the right agency partner to help them to produce compliant content. “We believe that the Zinc Agency Awards will help great agencies gain exposure and differentiate themselves to potential new clients, while at the same time assuring life sciences companies that these agencies are a quality Zinc partner and experienced compliance collaborator,” Zinc’s CEO James Brown said. “Zinc works with over 900 agencies worldwide, so we truly understand that the talent and knowledge to accelerate compliant and creative digital content is out there, and we are delighted to bring this service to our growing life sciences community.”
