Client Challenge

An AI venture-backed enterprise that gained "unicorn" status launched a next-generation product that supplies companies with unprecedented ease and access to high-impact data. As businesses clamored to become clients, the company struggled to scale its message, standardize processes across an uneven salesforce and effectively position its market-creating solution. With an IPO on the horizon, the company knew it needed Challenger to sharpen message delivery and capture growth.

Solution

Through research and outreach, Challenger quickly alighted on a galvanizing advantage the company had under-appreciated: its influential role as a market creator. To capitalize on this differentiation, Challenger steered the company to: (1) Execute compelling messaging around its unique position in the marketplace (2) Elevate sales conversations to engage in a fuller dialogue with higher-level decision makers.

Results

The company shifted from a product-oriented sales approach to a unique position strategy to keep the customer top-of-mind. This primed sales teams to harness the Challenger approach and drive a full transformation solution.
