Transparency

We provide you with a detailed breakdown of the hours it will take to deliver what you need and work with you to ensure it’s within your budget. No hidden fees, mark ups or costs.

End to end service

We not only recommend the right strategy and solution for you, but we can also help you to implement it. We provide an end to end service to ensure you can implement our recommendations and achieve your goals.

We’re impartial

We don’t have any network or vendor alliances and we’re not trying to win more of your marketing spend. The recommendations we provide are truly impartial to ensure we give you the best possible advice and solution for your needs.

Some of our work

WE WORK AROUND THE WORLD

We’re not big at bragging about our work or clients, needless to say we’re helping some of the world’s biggest brands transform and utilise digital marketing and technology.

TECHNOLOGY STACK REVIEW AND RECOMMENDATION

We completed a marketing technology audit for one Europe’s biggest retailers who deal with millions of customers and terabytes of data every day.

Appraise delivered a strategic recommendation on how to completely rebuild their marketing technology stack in order to deliver their digital marketing vision – to be the best digital marketing brand in their sector.

We interviewed key stakeholders and assessed their current technology ecosystem so that we could identify the best vendors to deliver the right solution for their needs and provided a detailed analysis of key market providers and their capabilities.

Our final recommendation included; high level tech stack architecture, vendor recommendations, budget estimates, deployment timelines, transition roadmap and an executive summary to be presented to their board.
And we did all that in less than 6 weeks!

GLOBAL DIGITAL ADVERTISING AUDIT

We helped one of the world’s biggest brands conduct an audit of their current digital Ad Serving activity to help save them millions of £pounds on their annual advertising budget.

Appraise delivered a global audit of their internal stakeholders and agencies in more than a dozen markets and identified key areas for improvement in both operational, technology and purchasing efficiencies.

We then ran their global request for proposal (RFP) process to identify potential new agency and technology partners and deploy those across their global network.

Appraise is now helping develop their internal Ad Serving resource to enable their long term plan of managing all this activity in-house.
