BP Castrol Case Study

BP Castrol Case Study


Castrol needed a solution to service their global need, both in brand adherence and creative developments but also in providing global savings and overall efficiencies.

Castrol BP required more stringent brand control and across multiple markets. They also required distribution and collection solutions to show better ROI and impact in market.


We are running the program with local support of offices in over 70 countries and 40 distribution centers in countries such as the UK, China, USA, Turkey, Russia, Brazil, South Africa and Australia.

We run a successful global end-to-end promotional materials program for BP lubricants (Castrol) from the UK with local support in over 40 countries and key distribution centres in the following countries:

Within Europe we provide an integrated inventory and web-to-print technology solution with EEC + Switzerland distribution out of our warehouse in Poland with secondary distribution centres in the UK (for local urgent needs given global HQ is in the UK), Turkey and Russia.

We deliver to a diverse range of stakeholders based in Castrol offices, to their Distributors, and in certain markets we also provide a retail solution, which is being rolled out globally.

Siemens Case Study

Siemens Case Study

The Brief

Prominate runs successful global and regional programs for Siemens and has done for many years with local support in over 40 countries and key distribution centres in China, Germany, Dubai, Russia, Brazil and Argentina. With a wide range of brands and a highly diverse premiums collection Siemens required strong leadership and solutions, for effective development of their markets.

The Solution

We continue to implement a globally coordinated program with one global but locally managed agreement to accommodate specific needs for individual countries. In the UK, approximately half of the spend is on ‘collection’ items via an online global e-store. We have been able to ensure savings year-on-year. To make sure markets are approached individually and according to their needs, around half of all orders are treated as ‘specials’ and ordered directly through our local office with local account management and local invoicing in GBP Sterling.
