Customer Profile

A leading manufacturer of parking automation, revenue control systems and pay and display machines.

Challenge

To find and secure new opportunities in sectors where the client’s brand was almost completely unknown, screening each for potential revenue value and disqualifying those driven by enforcement, rather than revenue optimisation. Our goal was to develop relationships with buyers as early as possible in their purchase cycle in order to lock out competition and help the client to enjoy higher win-rates. The client was also keen to develop a more structured and pro-active approach to its marketing and relationship management, and to build brand awareness whilst protecting its image as a solutions provider of quality.

Solution

Partnership working with the client’s team to define the value proposition in a way powerful enough to persuade strategic decision makers to share their time and problems. Careful research and intelligence capture allowed the sales specialists to attend each meeting well equipped to develop each prospect, and pro-active, personalised email narrowcasts were blended with phone contact to establish the brand and convey the value proposition.

Results

  • Sales pipeline created worth in excess of £3.5m for a 1% cost of marketing
  • Sales appointments with qualified buyers in organisations including Heathrow Airport, Vinci, and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Created database of prime target prospects with rich intelligence on current providers, install base, buying factors and triggers enabling future marketing to be strategically targeted
  • Created awareness for a relatively new brand to market, educating and building relationships with future prospects.
