Proven Success


Generating ROI on BPO

When the world’s leading enterprise for business process and document management needed a go-to-market strategy for its BPO line of business, the company turned to Ad Hoc. We delivered a value proposition that down-selected the company for a $200 million contract.


Creating market differentiation

We helped a $6 billion multinational company position itself as an industry first mover with a new service, slated to produce $25 million in revenue in three years.


Driving new revenue opportunities

We helped another global multinational brand secure a new, multi-million dollar contract with the largest cable company in North America, and fill its pipeline with potential new business prospects projected at $10-$20 million.


Setting a global strategy in motion

We implemented a global B2B marketing strategy for an enterprise e-payments software company; generated publicity for banking software that enabled the first shared Automated Teller Machine (ATM) network for the Dalian Credit Card Network of China; marketed banking software that enabled the first U.S. stored-value smart card deployment; and set the public relations strategy for several home banking software initiatives.


Successfully integrating a major acquisition

Our team managed four, worldwide, pre- and post-acquisition communications for a client. The acquisitions totaled $6.4 billion. We served as project manager for the internal and external deal disclosure communications, client meetings, and employee town hall communications. Post-acquisition, we mapped a strategic plan to integrate the acquired company’s brand, marketing programs and messaging, and sales presentations and served as the tactical implementers of that integration to preserve the culture, brand equity and client trust of the acquired company in the region.


Preventing the wrong decision

When a $2 billion technology company wanted to understand the impact of combining separate brands into a single brand, the company turned to Ad Hoc for expert insight and advice. Within 15 days, we delivered actionable intelligence based on primary research to help the company make an informed decision: keep the brands separate.

Happy clients. That’s what it’s all about.
