Essentiel Antwerp's Challenge

Essentiel Antwerp identified many challenges that the company had to face in order to reach it's brand goals.

This meant the PR team needed to be able to easily track and shape their media and press presence.

Essentiel Antwerp turned to Launchmetrics to organize its PR logistics, all in one place. The brand wanted to keep all of it's samples, contacts and brand mentions within 1 reliable system that it's PR team could trust.
