Pearson Case Study


The Brief

Previously purchasing promotional items locally and from a number of different suppliers, Pearson identified significant cost saving opportunities from a global solution and appointed Prominate to control the program from the UK but with additional coverage from our Prominate offices in Asia and North America.

The Solution

A dedicated and knowledgeable account management team showing an appreciation of the brand, and an understanding of the direction Pearson wish the brand to go and develop into. Working closely alongside Pearson’s Brand Team and chosen design agency, we developed an innovative merchandise range available to all Pearson employees via a pan-European webshop, which we implemented and continue to run successfully.
