New Technology Platform Brandvas Launches

Business and technology concept.

Brandvas, a technology platform of smart tools designed specifically for creative and marketing agencies has launched today. And, in aAustralian first, users will have access to Roy Morgan consumer data and Australia Post parcel insights data embedded in a brand strategy system to ensure strategies target the right markets.

The Brandvas tool kit allows agencies and marketers to increase capabilities, supercharge productivity and streamline projects, launching with seven modules; Creative Brief, Media Brief, Script Template, Creative Competitive Overview, Competitor Mapping, Research Data, including customer personas and their hero Brand Strategy.

Brandvas founder Jodie Catalfamo, who has worked in the advertising industry for more than 22 years, said Brandvas not only assists with the process of developing brand strategy, but is backed with access to deep consumer data insights and a suite of tools to streamline the way agencies and marketers work.

Catalfamo said: “When I worked at BADJAR Oglivy, research played a huge role in understanding a brand’s competitive context with data driven insights, strategy and creative. Working with brands, research was not always utilised, which often led to projects being led by assumptions and educated guesses. The team and I built Brandvas to democratise brand planning for agencies and marketers no matter what their size to increase capability and productivity and provide a crucial competitive edge.”

Central to the fully customisable platform is the white labeled brand strategy tool which enables strategy workshops to be run in the office or remotely.

In aAustralian first, Brandvas has secured agreements with Roy Morgan and Australia Post parcel insights to provide agencies and marketers access to research data across a multitude of categories to inform brand strategy and the creative brief.

Catalfamo added: “It was really important for the team and I to have reputable data partners for Brandvas to give agencies the opportunity of accessing robust and insightful data. Providing our agency and marketing clients the ability to validate or dismiss any assumptions. The data not only provides category insights which can direct the brand strategy, it also assists in marketing and creative recommendations.”

John Ellenberger, head of partnerships at Roy Morgan said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Brandvas to enable small creative and marketing businesses to develop strategies based on trusted and accurate research data. Given the challenging times we are all in, this will ensure that any decisions are based on the most up to date market intelligence.”

Ben Franzi, general manager, eCommerce platforms and marketplaces, Australia Post, added:  We’re excited to be working with Brandvas to provide small businesses with access to the latest online shopping insights and trends. The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a seismic shift in consumer behavior, and it is more important than ever that businesses of all sizes are able to easily access up-to-date industry data. We look forward to continuing to work with the Brandvas team to expand the range of Australia Post insights available through their platform in the months ahead.”

The Brandvas platform is project based and built to dovetail so once a brand strategy workshop has been completed, the creative and media briefs are already pre-populated, making the management of projects and creative teams simpler, more efficient and effective.

Although we provide the methodology and smart tools along the way, Brandvas is white labeled and completely customisable, so if aagency has proprietary questions, tools or processes they can easily include these and make it their own. Whilst we know even the smartest software can never replace creative genius, Brandvas amplifies talent and makes the best planners, facilitators and strategists elevate whilst streamlining the leg work,” Catalfamo adds.
