Autodesk Location Services | Case Study
International wireless telecom carriers were challenged with declining subscriber revenue, customer churn and huge capital investment in next generation wireless data networks. Autodesk was introducing a carrier-grade, highly-scaleable software platform with an integrated suite of market-ready, location-centric applications.
Their solution enabled wireless carriers to reliably deliver new, personalized, localized and actionable location based services with reduced risk and faster deployment than traditional in-house development efforts. While Autodesk had built a very successful brand on shrink-wrapped PC engineering and architectural software, wireless carriers had no awareness of the Autodesk brand. More importantly, they were not considered as a viable solution provider or enabler of new location-based services.
- Generate awareness and educate technical decision makers and executive management about what differentiated Autodesk’s location services platform.
- Position Autodesk’s location services platform as a compelling way for wireless carriers to maximize subscriber revenue while minimizing development costs and risks.
- Differentiate Autodesk from other providers through the comprehensiveness of their solution.
- Drive inquiry and evaluation of the Autodesk solution.
- Support revenue goal of signed evaluations by domestic and international tier-one carriers.
- Capitalize on highest concentrations of the target at key trade shows and events.
- Maximize opportunities for 1-on-1 evaluation of the solution.
- Build a brand personality for Autodesk that was intelligent, insightful and accessible.
- Comply with established parent company’s brand and visual requirements.
- Inquiries and evaluations doubled each quarter after the campaign launched.
- Specialized presentations to prospects exceeded expectations at every event. Autodesk achieved their year end sales goal of targeted carriers deploying the platform for delivering location based services.
- The integrated communications campaign significantly raised Autodesk’s visibility and credibility within wireless carrier community.
- The “location in the shadow” visual became a recognized icon for the Autodesk location-based solution and brand.
“We were looking for a seasoned resource with technology marketing experience that was qualified to help us differentiate our new middleware platform. Teamworks was not only able to understand our solution and our business but they also developed a unique brand positioning for us that was integrated into all of the communications that we produced for our launch. Their efforts also helped us achieve our sales goal.”
