Challenge and analysis

The National Debt Register (KRS) is the first and the largest credit information office based in Poland. Multitude of information and data distributed by credit information offices and other entities and institutions taking care of the finances of legal and private persons  made it necessary to work out a formula based, in the first place, on offering data of high quality, analyses, and showing a wide business context of a given branch.

Strategy

Strategy

We have come up with an idea of creating extensive and quality branch-oriented  reports made in collaboration with leading organizations associating entrepreneurs of a specific branch. In such a way,  the agency has successfully implemented this idea and as a result of it we secured regular communications, commitment and direct access to the   interested group of entrepreneurs  (potential clients of  The National Debts Register (KRD), and thus offered an outstanding product  due to  its content and visual appeal of the  media materials

  • For us – it is quality that counts not quantity – the agency did not limit themselves to just presenting the data compiled in the National Debts Register, but showed it against a wider background, including e.g. description and characteristics of macro situation in a  given sector of economy,  the  reasons of specific circumstances and the factors impacting them positively as well as the barriers and hindrances
  • Changing previous  rhetoric  dominant in  the client’s press office releases – a shift from the style of  „alarming and frightening” to „informing, explaining and showing opportunities and threats’
  • Adjusting the schedule of report announcement dates to the ‘seasonability’ of a given branch
  • A wide communications always aimed at the media/journalists handling business, general and regional news and the branch-specific media  (selection on a case-to-case basis depending on a topic)
  • Engaging partners – trade organizations connecting the majority of market players – in their work contribution to the reports
