We’re very excited to announce the launch of a new mobile app for OTC DASHBOARD subscribers, providing instant access on your smartphone to all data and content at a global, regional and country level, tracking all 64 markets that we cover. Subscribers will also find available the latest consumer healthcare news, infographics and ad campaigns, plus the Market Movers and Dates For Your Diary features.
We’re happy to announce the mobile app will be free as part of your existing OTC DASHBOARD subscription package, and no in-app purchases are required. The app is available on both the Android (Google Play) and Apple stores at:
Below is a very quick “how to” guide to getting started with the mobile app:
- After downloading the app to your smartphone and logging in to it with the same log-in details that you use for the OTC DASHBOARD website, you will be taken through to the app’s homepage, entitled “OTC Dashboard: News Feed”.
- As well as being able to scroll down through the news feed to check recent OTC developments, there are also three main points of navigation on the homepage (see the three red arrows in the three screenshots below). First, and most important, is the triple bar symbol (≡) at the top left, which allows you to navigate through all the various features, including Global Market Overview – press the + button to the right of this for the submenu allowing access to seven areas of content.
- Secondly, the triple dot symbol (⋮) at the top right allows you to navigate through important app information, including your My OTC DASHBOARD shortcuts (“Dashboard”), as well as allowing you to log out of the app.
- Thirdly, and finally, clicking on the globe symbol at the bottom left of the page allows you to select whether you want to view data and content in the market overview section at global, regional or country level (press the + button to select any country within any region).
Using the same globe symbol, the app allows users to switch between regions and countries while in certain sections of the Global Market Overview, for example Category Watch, but to switch to other features in the submenu, for example from Category Watch to Brand Watch, you will need to use the back button and triple bar symbol (≡) at the top left to navigate. Many of the charts are interactive, allowing you to drill down for further information on a particular country, category, marketer or brand, and giving you access to a huge wealth of information on the global OTC market in just one easy-to-access app.
Please also note that many aspects of the app are interactive, allowing you to explore further. For example, if you click on companies or brands in Company Watch or Brand Watch, you will open a pop-up screen with more trend information.
We hope you enjoy exploring the new OTC DASHBOARD mobile app, and if you have any questions or issues, please feel free to contact one of the team:
