Indoor spatial intelligence entails the digitalization of factories and other large commercial properties. With the SLAM-powered NavVis M6 Indoor Mobile Mapping System (IMMS), an accurate 3D mapping of huge facilities can be completed in a matter of hours.

The NavVis IndoorViewer software then turns the collected data including high-quality point clouds and 360 imagery into an immersive in-browser 3D model that is easily accessible to every building stakeholder to radically improve transparency and collaboration.

The uniqueness of NavVis is underpinned by numerous awards, a solid patent portfolio and even a personal visit from the German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Their enterprise client roster features leading automotive powerhouses including BMW, Daimler, PSA and Volkswagen; industrial companies such as Bosch and Siemens as well as many other global players such as Allianz and Deutsche Telekom.

In its sales strategy, NavVis focuses on direct customer relationships with large companies, such as the groups mentioned above. However, scalability, which is the key to company growth, lies in forging partnerships with over 30 local engineering firms all over the globe that specialize in 3D mapping and are certified experts that own and operate NavVis mobile laser-scanning devices.

These engineering companies specialize in the digital 3D mapping and surveying of buildings and factories. By using NavVis technology, they benefit from a faster and more efficient surveying process. The result for joint enterprise customers: a seamless and much more precise creation of a digital twin of their global manufacturing premises.

Scalable Growth Through Digital Marketing and Sales

“NavVis wants to make its technology available to the right buyers around the world as quickly as possible”, says Irene Herranz, describing the marketing and sales objectives of NavVis. “Svensson & Friends supported the company in creating the foundation for a scalable lead generation strategy.”

NavVis relies on content marketing to sensitize potential customers to its unique technology. Convincing content, carefully tailored to the individual information needs along the buyer’s journey, forms the basis for the digital marketing strategy of NavVis.

To structure the lead management process, NavVis relies on HubSpot Marketing Hub in the marketing area. Right up to the lifecycle stage of the sales qualified lead (SQL), all contacts are qualified using lead scoring. As soon as a contact’s behavior indicates a buying interest, it is passed on to the sales department. The pre-qualified contacts are then processed on the basis of Microsoft Dynamics CRM.


Intelligent Lead Scoring

Lead scoring helps fast-growing tech start-ups to maintain control over the qualification process even with a high number of leads. Find out how lead scoring works and how it can benefit your start-up.

Customized content and intelligent automation using HubSpot help to make this process efficient.

“Svensson & Friends has helped NavVis to structure the lead qualification process and adapt our CRM system accordingly”, says Irene Herranz. “NavVis pursues ambitious goals and holds its external partners to high standards. The cooperation with Svensson & Friends was highly professional and always maintained a friendly human touch.”
