NFU Mutual, winner of the 2015 Which? Award for Best Insurance Services Provider, has been a trusted UK insurer for over 100 years. With more than 300 offices and 5,000 staff and agents across the UK, it underwrites over £1 billion in annual life and general insurance lines.
Producing multiple reports, policy documents, newsletters, posters and postcards on a daily basis, NFU were looking for a way to streamline production and ensure a consistent brand message.They found that individual departments within the organisation were creating their own brand comms using local software, and this was leading to brand inconsistency and dilution of brand message. They also wanted to centralise their marketing resources, which were often stored locally, compounding the problem.
When NFU heard about Libris’ BrandingManager and DAM systems, they were excited at the possibility of bringing this all into line. Their clear aim was to get the multiple departments that were each producing their own comms to access the same resources and deliver the same message.
- Allow users to create new material locked to brand without the need for an external artwork agency
- Improve brand consistency across multiple departments
- Reduce time spent on repetitive tasks and money spent on agency fees
- Use Master documents and Smart templates to speed up creation of new branded material
All internal comms are now on brand, usage can be measured through the user-friendly interface, and all users now have instant access to their valuable central library of rights managed content.
Introducing Libris to NFU Mutual
NFU Mutual launched their Libris BrandingManager system to coincide with the launch of new internal brand guidelines, and it brought them significant benefits to have this tech available at the same time as new content was being created.
NFU maintain 10 sub-brands, all with different colourways, and produce a wide range of materials within each one. By introducing the Libris BrandingManager and DAM systems, they were able to speed up every stage of producing new collateral from finding the right logo or template to creating internal comms materials and the instant generation of print-ready or emailable PDFs.
- Guaranteed brand consistency across multiple departments
- Central library of digital assets ensures the 100+ users are all have instant access to the same material
- Dashboard interface of the BrandingManager system enables NFU to track usage, providing measurable ROI
Benefits of introducing Libris into NFU Mutual
NFU have been incredibly impressed with the results of introducing the Libris BrandingManager and DAM systems to their organisation. All internal comms are now on brand, they can measure usage through the user-friendly interface, and all users now have instant access to their valuable central library of rights managed content.
It’s the perfect solution for managing the production of a range of materials and they anticipate it going from strength to strength as they continue to add more content to the DAM.
It has been so successful internally that NFU are talking to us about giving their extensive direct sales force access to the system so they can produce bespoke quotes and other collateral within the set brand guidelines.
