Headline: Convergencies in Action
The Convergencies' Collaborative Process is a key element in ensuring an effective solution that fulfills your business objectives, represents your company to your market in a manner that they understand and is key to developing a positive customer relationship.
1. Convergencies Collaborative Process begins with listening to and learning about your company, business objectives, and the marketplace. From this we develop a positioning that is the foundation of the concept development.
2.Below are listed some of the factors that we will review together as we progress to the concept development phase. Each one links to and feeds the next stage in the process, ensuring that we stay on track.
3.To gauge the success and viability of the concepts, we check them against your objectives and the research obtained. As we move into development of the design and production we review it to ensure it still reflects the objectives set forth in the beginning and satisfies the criteria.
4.After the design has been implemented we review the piece together. With the input gained during the viability phase, we adjust any of the criteria and discuss next steps.
The result of this collaboration is effective creative, focused on generating a measurable return on your investment and long-term customer relationships.
5. As you can see, the steps of this process ensure checkpoints and measurement of success at every step along the way. We can customize this process for any type of engagement, including quick turnaround projects. With 20 years of experience, we understand the value of a strong methodology and have seen the success it generates, and so have our clients.
