International client case study:

Sundaram Business Services

Company background

Sundaram Business Services Limited (SBS) is a business process outsourcing company based in India, employing over 1,200 staff.

After successfully expanding their operations into Australia, they decided to turn their attention to the UK market. The first area they wanted to focus on was their Finance and Accounting Services for Corporates and Accounting Firms.

Selecting Prospect Research

SBS wanted to source a specialist UK lead generation company to work with.

Prospect Research has a long track record both providing targeted telemarketing, lead generation and market research to professional practices such as accountants and also targeting these practices on behalf of clients. SBS selected

Prospect Research because of this experience, their approach and the calibre of staff who would work on the account.

Prospect Research’s

approach gave us the

confidence that our UK target

list would be contacted in a

thorough and professional

manner in keeping with the

high standards that our

business is based on.

Campaign overview

The campaign was focused on 1,000 small/mid-sized accountancy firms in and around London and ran over a six week period. The brief was to arrange appointments with firms who were interested in the opportunity to save time and money by outsourcing suitable accounting work to SBS.

Prospect Research’s team was successful in quickly gaining the interest of busy partner-level decision makers and engaging them in discussion. This was needed to clearly explain SBS’s

proposition and fully qualify their requirements and interest so that if an appointment was arranged, it would be a productive use of their senior executives’ limited time in the UK.

The appointments were also arranged with consideration for geography, so that SBS executives could minimise travel time and spend as much time as possible face to face with prospects.

Detailed call notes were supplied for each appointment, meaning that SBS executives were fully briefed before an appointment, which helped them make the most of each opportunity. Prospect Research also

developed the contact database so SBS could utilise the data for other marketing efforts, such as email campaigns.

Results

Prospect Research achieved the campaign target within the

timeframe set by SBS. Their lead generation campaign helped act as a springboard to SBS’s work in the UK, and SBS now has an established client base in the UK. SBS has embarked on a subsequent lead generation campaign with Prospect Research to continue to build on these foundations.

Our work with SBS

shows how well suited our

lead generation service is to

international companies looking

to expand into the UK. Using

Prospect Research gives them

a cost effective way to build

up their database of contacts,

the opportunity to meet with

interested prospects face to

face, and gain valuable insights

into their target market.
