Cable&Wireless Worldwide vertical GTM strategy

OneGTM provided end-to-end support to help Cable&Wireless Worldwide develop and execute a vertical go-to-market strategy to strengthen their position in the enterprise market.

The client

Cable&Wireless Worldwide delivers advanced IT and communications services to enterprise and public sector clients in the UK and globally.

Their requirement

The client wanted to strengthen their position within their target enterprise market by re-focusing their go-to-market approach around key vertical sectors. To underpin this strategy C&WW needed to put in place a scalable framework for defining vertical sector strategies, and then building and executing integrated go-to-market plans.

The project

OneGTM initially worked with C&WW to help define an end-to-end process for vertical sector go-to-market, which would ensure that sector strategies were based on a sound understanding of the competitive and market environment and would have buy-in across the business. We then worked with key stakeholders within the business to define the propositions and go-to-market plans for each of the C&WW’s target verticals, including Banking, Retail and Utilities. Once the plans were approved OneGTM then programme managed their implementation and also delivered many aspects of the plans including defining campaign themes, building go-to-market toolkits, creating thought leadership materials and delivering the sales enablement programmes.

The impact

Within six months of the launch of the plan the client saw significant improvements in all of the key performance indicators that they were tracking, including customer advocacy ratings, sales activity levels and sales pipeline value. The success of this programme has seen OneGTM engaged to support a much broader range of C&WW’s go-to-market activities in the UK and globally.

What they said

"OneGTM made a great contribution to the successful launch of the CWW Banking Sector and have worked as an integral part of our team…Everything has been delivered to a very high standard and is already producing great results for us in terms of market awareness, customer engagement and pipeline”
