Customer testimonial:

Local campaign and launch management in Australia and Indonesia

"As you probably know, in-store solutions are a very effective way of influencing the Moment of Truth out there in the wholesaler stores so that more installers choose Grundfos. You may also remember us describing the new and user-friendly Online Marketing Generator (OMG) that your marketing people may use to quickly develop professional-looking in-store solution materials. It’s easy, and since you only need to pay the printer, it’s very cheap as well. But instead of taking our word for it, why not hear what one of your colleagues, Regional Marketing Manager Tiffany Bermingham from Grundfos Australia (GPA), has to say about the OMG?

Speed to market and user-friendliness
“The main advantage of using the Online Marketing Generator is the speed to market”, Tiffany says. “The tool allows you to create reactive below the line marketing collateral quickly and keep tone, look and feel of our brand consistent across borders”. Consistency across borders is especially important if, like Tiffany, you’re handling marketing material in several languages for several markets, but compliance with the corporate visual identity is important for all of us – and the OMG ensures this.

The main reason for the speed to market, of course, is that the tool is very easy to use: “Once you have the product image contoured, all you need to do is follow a few simple steps and you have your piece of artwork created, ready to send to the production house”, Tiffany says, adding that all it takes to get up and running and create artwork with the new tool is about one hour of learning.

Saves time. And money
It is all very well to have great speed to market and user-friendliness, but sometimes in the real world, marketing efforts are often decided by the simple question of money. In a nutshell: Is there money (and man-hours, which amounts to the same thing) to be saved by using the OMG? Tiffany is very clear on that point. “It’s a cost effective solution,” she says. “It saves both time and money for producing artwork”.

If you had to sum up your experience of using the OMG in one word, what would it be?

“Awesome!”

The headquarter is located in the United States. With more than 150 manufacturing locations throughout Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America, PPG  facilities are strategically located to serve their customers in every region. Worldwide, PPG employs more than 46,000 people.

What was the challenge?
The PPG brands, Gori, Bondex and Dyrup would allow the markets to share and use marketing materials locally, quickly, in latest version and highest quality.
At the same time, PPG would allow local markets to have their own local Marketing and Sales Asset department online.
PPG has a large amount of labels and packaging materials with many languages and changes. Setting up, updating, language editing and approval procedures etc. of all these materials required a very large amount of internal time consuming and was very costly.

Results
Lindblad analyzed and interviewed the markets and setup a MarketPort with Digital Multimedie Asset Management (MarketingZone). On top of that we setup the cloud studio (WorkZone), where the Marketing materials and the labels and packaging materials are build and translated without the use of any graphic programs such as ex. InDesign, Photoshop etc. Easy to use by people without technical skills.
Result: There are access to global and local marketing and sales asset and the online web2print studio form one cloud portal.
Genuine sharing of materials and knowledge etc. between the markets. Cloud workflow that cuts the time to market by approx. 60%, ensures high quality and cost savings.

Customer testimonial:

“For me, they offer two things: Firstly, a smooth-running filing system and presentation tool. Secondly, I like how they have a very pragmatic approach to communication and for instance printed matter. I find this style very liberating and comfortable in contrast to the often somewhat overblown and staged ways of thinking within advertising agencies.

They are also very solution minded and great at controlling productions”.
