THE PROBLEM

Microsoft Mobile needed help in managing 5 agencies who execute their paid media activity.  There was a need to both co-ordinate and challenge the agencies to innovate.

THE SOLUTION

  • Structured campaign planning process and documents put in place for effective management and co-ordination of stakeholders and deadlines
  • Cloud based reporting implemented for greater agency accountability of KPI’s and performance

THE RESULT

  • Campaign planning to launch time reduced from 7 weeks to 4 weeks
  • Agency man-hours in meetings down from 58 to 20 hours
  • Additional team hours allowed for innovations within the Lumia digital marketing plan including coordinated cross-channel marketing plans
