Brand Positioning

Gepubliceerd op

Our team helped to find Boels’ ideal positioning, given the needs of their customers, the strength of their competitors and the DNA of their organization.

Brand positioning Boels

• Selection of the three most relevant and distinctive domains aligned with the strengths of the company, validated in qualitative and quantitative research.

• Most important present and future proof aligned with selected positioning domains

The client

Boels offers more than just the best rental solutions for your project. They have a broad range of services to support you and they make sure that you can always get on with your work. Even for unique challenges or in emergency situations, Boels is always there to provide the most suitable solution. Hands-on and willing to go the extra mile, that’s the Boels mentality.

With more than 400 branches across Europe, Boels’ large rental fleet consists of new and high-quality machines, tools and equipment. From construction logistics to industrial rental and from climate control to access control.

The Challenge:

A strong brand is one of the most important assets of a company. Boels wanted to know what the ideal brand positioning and desired perception of the brand is. What makes Boels relevant, distinctive and unique in the eyes of the customers and stakeholders?

The Objective:

The objective of this project was to arrive at a positioning that offers support and direction for Boels’ activities in the short and long term. The positioning should give direction to employees in their daily work and contribute to the consumer choice for Boels and satisfaction with Boels.

The Approach/Methodology:

2 phases

1. Determine the positioning of Boels

            a. Diagnosis of the customer needs, Boels’ strengths and those of competitors

            b. Qualitative customer research

            c. Determine the concept positioning

2. Concretise and validate positioning

             a. Quantitative customer research

             b. Determining definitive positioning

The Result:

Through interviews with internal business and country directors, we identified topics that required attention, but also new opportunities for Boels. We identified the most and least important features clients consider when choosing a party to rent machines and the key contributions Boels should provide through interviews with clients. With external interviews, we saw what the most relevant positioning domains were according to clients. That is how we determined the “sweet spot” positioning of Boels. To validate the positioning we executed an extensive quantitative research.

Final Word:

The combination of the three selected domains is effective and long-lasting.

           • The domains are infinite goals: Infinite goals give direction for the long term and on this basis Boels can continue to improve.

           • Focus on benefits, not on features or advantages: The focus on benefits rather than features or advantages makes it harder for the competition to copy Boels. The position has therefor a more long-lasting competitive advantage.

           • Combine functional and emotional benefits: B2B brands often focus on functional benefits alone. However, research on brand positioning shows that emotion is a key element of a successful positioning, also in B2B.
