Major Telecommunications Company Streamlines Marketing Distribution
With approximately 1.4 million subscribers, this world-class telecommunications provider offers its customers with premium services such as HDTV, high speed Internet, home security, and phone services.
This telecommunications giant operates in 18 states, primarily in medium-sized communities. As the company grew and expanded its services nationwide, it was crucial to streamline marketing processes to add to the growth of sales.
The fast growing communications company needed to give sales and regional representatives the ability to remotely access, personalize, and order marketing materials on demand while preserving the company’s brand integrity. In addition, as a result of continuous creative updates, the telecommunications services provider needed to automate the way in which marketing collateral was created and revised.
When searching for a marketing solution that could help the company easily create quarterly rate cards as well as revise channel line ups with frequency, the company found that Argosy could automate as well as consolidate a variety of other marketing processes while reducing operating costs for them.
