From Powerpoint, to a DVD or Online Movie... we design and produce attention grabbing multi-functional presentations to remember! To view an example movie please click the image above.
For this reason our approach to client relationships follows a simple structure. Firstly, we aim to fully understand your business, industry and markets. By working closely with you, in a full and open partnership to maximise profitability and returns toward the achievement of pre-determined goals.
It is in this way that we have built an enviable reputation for client success in service industries such as, education, retail, manufacturing, construction, leisure and business to business solutions.
Our technique for dealing with a client brief is illustrated by the following:
Understand what we (ourselves and the client) are trying to achieve, the market we are addressing and the customers we are targeting. Until we have “identified” we cannot proceed to the innovation stage.
Take all our market and customer knowledge and use it to put together an imaginative and inventive strategy to achieve the client’s objectives.
Once we have the strategy, we need to develop the creative solutions by working closely with the client to arouse, enthral, excite and stimulate customers.
Combine the innovative strategy and inspirational creativity to impress and influence the client’s customers to buy their product or service. Once we have completed this process, the results can be measured against the objectives. In this way the value of Communique’s involvement with a client can be calculated.
For back end systems and database integration, we use external teams. We have a track record of successful e-projects with a number of developers and their personnel joining our in-house project teams where necessary. We have dedicated servers maintained 24/7 for us by a third party. This means we can offer full internet hosting and email services.
We have a number of key partners in areas such as photography, video production, exhibition build and telemarketing. In addition, our regular suppliers, e.g. printers, are also central to our supply chain network. Each is checked for quality, service and value before going on to our approved partners/suppliers list.
Communique have a number of partnerships with other design companies who offer specialised services such as illustration. Some of these partners can also assist us during periods of heavy workload, allowing us to satisfy client deadlines.
A dedicated Account Manager and team will be appointed to your account. Individuals with more specialised skills will be drafted in to the core team as and when required. These can be internal staff or external consultants depending on the nature of the work.
The Account Manager will attend and record all client meetings. After each meeting a Contact Report will be updated and circulated to the client and members of the Communique team. This will list all elements of any projects worked on with responsibilities etc. Separate timetables for individual projects will be produced with key milestones, target dates, responsibilities, fall-back plans etc. Once again these will be discussed at each client meeting and updated accordingly. Finally all work will be quoted in detail so that a specification for each job, with parameters, can be drawn up. This ensures no confusion or surprises on cost.
Communication electronically is the norm, i.e. email with hard copy follow up. Initial reports or visuals are always presented on a face-to-face basis as are major developments of these . Routine developments are emailed with hard copy follow up. Video conferencing with all team members present is available.
