Building the blueprint for expansion
Create new ventures
Expanding the right way
Sentia is a managed cloud services provider, operating in North Western Europe. Over the last few years it has been tactically expanding – adding new regions, and new specialist cloud services, to its portfolio.
On the cusp of its biggest-ever expansion, Sentia knew that it needed to tread carefully. If wrongly managed, its strategic acquisitions could wind up damaging its brand, especially if propositions appeared misaligned to customers.
A cleary defined and renewed commercial strategy, positioning in the market, value propositions, branding & messaging and go-to-market approach.
"On the cusp of its biggest-ever expansion, Sentia knew that it needed to tread carefully. If wrongly managed, its strategic acquisitions could wind up damaging its brand, especially if propositions appeared misaligned to customers."
With knowledge of Paal15’s strategy focus – and its ability to bring it to life with creative and marketing execution – Sentia made the call. It would be our job to help Sentia re-write the page – and then get everyone on it.
Reworking the strategy
We started by mapping-out and defining customer value propositions across all of Sentia’s new companies and markets, to allow Sentia to not just maintain customer experiences, but enhance them too.
For each company, we then looked at the unique space they worked in – re-defining, re-structuring and re-mapping of the core value propositions to both align them with the Sentia Group and work-in newly acquired capabilities and man-power.
Bringing strategy to market
With a solid blueprint in place, we carefully rolled-out Sentia’s new story and positioning to its employees, its future talent and its existing customers and prospects across all its new and existing markets.
We strategically targeted high-growth sectors with tailored messaging, developing and optimising campaigns for awareness, account-based lead generation and specific verticals.
The key to success is our ongoing efforts. You can’t plan for every eventuality – that’s why we stayed on-hand to help Sentia with its next ambitions, using in-depth knowledge of its business to fit any new demands into the existing tactical plan.
LEADING THE WAY
Sentia don’t do short-term relationships – and neither do we. Alongside strategic thinking, Sentia needed end-to-end support from a partner who could execute tactically and creatively in every operational market – one with the expertise to make more than just a superficial impact.
That’s Paal15 in a nutshell.
Now a leading provider in all of its operational markets, Sentia has managed to commercially unite all the entities under the Sentia Group – setting them up for new growth, expansion and customer service.
