Philosophy

CRECON R&C operates on the corporate principles of trust, gratitude, and giving back. We build up trust with the providers of information, primarily consisting of pharmaceutical distributors, and with the consumers of our information and services, primarily consisting of drug manufacturers. We also express gratitude for that trust and strive to give back to the industry that supports our work. These principles form the standards of conduct that guide the actions of our employees.
