PRODUCTION AND ASSET MANAGEMENT BELONG TOGETHER

Best practice in production requires asset management

Brand owners benefit from ICP's leadership in consulting and managed services for digital assessment management (DAM) and linked technologies.

Asset duplication is avoided, and reuse and repurposing are the default. Budgets are protected and focused on investment in future master creative. New assets form part of the universal library of assets for onward publication and reuse.

Content stewards and change managers work alongside production experts. The results are workflows that feel intuitive, a library that is the single source of truth, and the repurposing of content. Together, this provides impressive ROI on creative and production spend.

As marketing organizations find themselves at the centre of data and content orchestration, the interconnection between production and asset management lifecycles has never been more beneficial to brands.


CHOOSE YOUR CONTENT DELIVERY MODEL WITH CARE

Flexible and scalable delivery models designed and built for you

Global clients now benefit from in-house, onsite, near-site, and off-shore delivery solutions where the right work is conducted in the right place, at the right time for the right cost.

Brand owners have access to a delivery model optimized for them, always independent of any legacy agency model or previous ways of working. 

Whether it's high-touch original asset production or high-volume adaptation, ICP teams tailor their process to your specific needs.

Data led personalisation

DATA LED PRODUCTION

Insights from campaign data improve performance

Brand owners have increasingly rapid and comprehensive access to data regarding views, clicks, and other interactions with marketing material.  Combine this with varying degrees of attribution analysis of what journey leads to purchase, and the opportunities to revise and optimise marketing material on the fly becomes evident.

We incorporate first and third party data to better help clients understand the needs of their customers and connect with them in the most effective way.

By analysing data, we help marketers identify the 'why' to better personalise communications.
