A company whose perspective is the main guarantor of its success in the truest sense of the word, is Schott AG. Schott offers an extensive portfolio of high-quality products made from special-purpose glass and ceramics. Represented by production sites and sales offices in 35 countries, the specialist glass manufacturer is an innovative partner for companies in a wide range of sectors including home appliances, pharmaceutical, electronics, optics, automotive, and aviation industries. This widespread presence sees the company face the challenge of appealing to sometimes considerably different markets and target groups with specific local information that needs to be both CI- and CD-compliant.
To ensure homogenous brand awareness for its extensive product portfolio, Schott AG, a member of the Carl Zeiss Foundation, employs four high-performance Marketing Efficiency Cloud modules: Media Pool for Digital Asset Management, Web-to-Print for adapting CI-compliant print layouts for local markets, Marketing Shop for processing order processes for marketing materials centrally, and the Smart Access module for intelligent user guidance – that´s Marketing with perspective.
”The BrandMaker Marketing Efficiency Cloud modules meet the vast majority of our requirements. We were also impressed by its functional depth and usability,” says Birgit Werner, Project Manager for the Marketing Management Platform at Schott AG. BrandMaker CEO Mirko Holzer continues: “We are delighted to welcome Schott as the latest innovative and globally successful company to use our solutions as an aid for its marketing efforts in such a diverse range of industries, including automotive industry, electronics, optics, and pharmaceutics.”

On May 20th, it’s time again for “RoadMap 2015“. We invite our customers to the 2nd International BrandMaker User Conference in Cologne. After its very successful launch last year this year’s User Conference is dedicated to agile marketing. “More Agility” is becoming a megatrend throughout the complete marketing process: marketing planning is no longer carried out for a whole year and is, instead, reviewed and modified in much shorter cycles. Marketing content is no longer static. It is modified dynamically for different markets and target groups. And in many cases, the success is measured in real time to enable immediate reactions when the campaigns are subsequently played out.
The keynote speech of our “RoadMap 2015” will be given by Scott Brinker. The Marketing Technology specialist writes the blog “Chief Marketing Technologist” and publishes the much-quoted “Marketing Technology Landscape”. He also is program chair of the Marketing Tech Conference “Martech” in San Francisco. Speakers from companies such as Equinix, Hasbro and Oerlikon have already confirmed their participation and more exciting speakers will follow in the upcoming weeks.
The conference is offering auspicious opportunities to interact with marketing decision-makers and BrandMaker users from different industries in an informal way. We will start our User Conference again with a common dinner on the Rhine, on the eve of conference.
