kongsberg digital: defining the brand for a digital venture

In a global race to be at the forefront of the next industrial revolution, KONGSBERG Group launched their digital division, Kongsberg Digital

the story

A year later, the high-tech platform Kognifai came to life, and we got the job to help them develop the brand strategically and position it for scaling and international leadership.

Industrial digitalization is the number one priority for many large corporations, and with Kognifai being a relatively “late” launch, it required clear positioning, and a carefully developed brand strategy. 

When Kognifai was developed and launched it also became clear that many of Kongsberg Digital products and solutions would be affected. Upgrades, integrations, and new partnerships were imminent and Kongsberg Digital needed to make sure they were prepared for all the different scenarios leading to success.

The project required intelligence, strategic branding and positioning, architecture and solid implementation tactics.

kicking off the new brand

After analyzing the strategic landscape a new brand platform and core narratives for Kognifai were developed.

To further strengthen this strategy, the digital customer journey and a simplified brand architecture was carefully mapped out. Along with the associated messaging and naming, Kognifai was tailored to the different touch-points of various target groups.

The brand strategy was presented for all employees and was sequentially implemented globally. In cooperation with XY01, tactical and strategic activities were developed to secure the successful execution of the new strategy.

Continuing to build on the brand strategy and architecture, their competitive and differentiating edge would be anchored in their highly anticipated digital twin concept. After a series of collaborative sessions, the concept was successfully launched at ONS 2018.
