Our Latest Achievement

A big part of our strategy recently has been to celebrate our market-leading and market-defining solutions within B2B Marketing. Our philosophy and approach required our clients to be brave and try new ways of getting their brand, products and solutions to market.

The results we have delivered this year are truly outstanding, garnering many awards and accolades along the way, but most importantly, long term partnerships with our clients based on creating value, sustainability and growth.

This has resulted in Graymatter establishing itself as a centre-of-excellence in a number of B2B Marketing sectors. Our thought leadership and expertise in the Automotive Fleet, IT, Technology and Software sectors have established us as a best‐in‐class B2B Marketing agency in the UK, with a growing reputation throughout Europe.

Some of our headline achievements and successes in 2016-17

Winning the BP Fuel Card European Account in 2016 and a Global Contract. Through Graymatter’s strategic B2B thinking and understanding of the fleet market, our work effort has been transformational in redefining BP’s Fuel Card’s value proposition and go‐to‐market strategy. Driving consumer insights; a new digital eco-system and communication toolkit for Europe.

Graymatter, The Open University and the MK Council came together to Deliver an award‐winning Smart City Ideation platform for business start‐ups. The result: ‘OurMK’ is an award‐winning citizen ideation platform designed by Graymatter that enables and empowers citizens of Milton Keynes to submit, share, collaborate and establish sustainability projects and business start‐ups. Rated a Top 5 crowdsourcing initiative in Government.

Winning the re‐brand and re‐launch of the UKs fastest growing software company, Advanced. Graymatter won the project based on our brand credentials, our clarity of thinking, and an in‐depth understanding of the B2B IT and Software market. This enabled us to turn research insight into knowledgeable action quickly, and make informed judgement calls in order to deliver against a very tight timescale.

Advanced FairlTales won B2B Marketing Campaign of the Year in the Marketing Society Excellence Awards and has been shortlisted in the B2B Marketing Awards for ‘Best use of Creative’ as well as the DRUM Brave Awards for 'Best Demand Generation'.

The Advanced rebrand has been shortlisted in the DRUM Marketing Awards in the ‘New Product / Service Launch Strategy of the year’ category.

Working closely with our clients some for over ten years, the longevity of our client relationships to us, is testimonial in our approach to true partnership and collaboration. Our success in 2016-17 has resulted in double digit growth and all of our principal ratios being met or exceeded, something we are particularly proud of given the backdrop of Brexit uncertainty.

Having recognition for our achievements is proven in our recent finalist position; with a shortlist in The Drum B2B Brave Awards for ‘Agency of the Year’.

As founder and MD of Graymatter I am immensely proud of our achievements and growing reputation as an independent marketing agency, but the thing that excites me most is delivering real difference through owning the strategic agenda and working alongside so many talented people here. We will continue being brave and deliver more award-winning results.

Dean Gray | Brand and Communications | Strategy

"Our senior team feels the brand strategy is fully aligned to our business strategy which was an essential part of the brief and our journey as an organisation undergoing massive transformation. This has seen us reorganise from thirteen disparate business units, with thirteen brands, to one united entity and brand – known to us as ‘One Advanced’. The brand strategy, voice and messaging guide has been integral in rolling out the new brand, forming a core point of reference and guidance across communications for every part of our business to ensure consistency of brand and message. It is simple to use and interpret for every media channel. The response from the market has been remarkable since the brand launched in April."

Sally Scott | Chief Marketing Officer | Advanced

"Graymatter were invited to tender for the BP Fuel Card European Account based on their growing reputation as a thought‐leader within the B2B Fleet sector. They won the account based on the quality of their strategic thinking and in‐ depth understanding of our objectives. They have since delivered a transformational programme of marketing, commutation and digital initiatives that are currently being implemented throughout Europe."
