HAMMER, a brand owned by mPTech, presents its wide range of phones and smartphones by sub-lines: HAMMER Adventure, HAMMER Athlete and HAMMER Industrial. It follows an internal analysis of the experiences and preferences of users of the enhanced models, conducted by the company in both B2B and B2C channels. The assortment, was divided into lines and tailored to the expectations of target groups in terms of both functionality and the physical characteristics of the product, e.g. in terms of technological advancement or resistance. The division into lines also better highlights the individual HAMMER models and their purpose. It is also intended to help new customers select a particular model to suit their needs, hobbies or specific activities.
HAMMER is the leader in manufacturing rugged phones and smartphones in the country. The brand, which has been in operation since 2014, is constantly developing its offer and setting the evolutionary direction for others, which is also confirmed by the changes implemented.
– The analysis of experiences, customer preferences and many years of activities for the HAMMER brand, allowed us to gain invaluable knowledge and draw interesting conclusions. Based on this, we divided the HAMMER brand portfolio into categories – explains Piotr Spychalski, Sales Director at mPTech. – We made the strategic decision to separate three categories: HAMMER Adventure – for the more “serious” users, travellers and professionals who need an extremely rugged phone with specialised features and higher technological parameters to enable them to document extreme experiences, HAMMER Industrial – for those who work in harsh conditions or those needing an uncomplicated but rugged phone, and HAMMER Athlete – for professionally active and sporty people who appreciate solutions that are more advanced and robust, yet with a less “armoured” design. We believe that the division, which meets the expectations of our customers, will have a positive impact on the perception of our offer and will make it easier to choose a model adequate to one’s preferences – adds Piotr Spychalski.
HAMMER phones and smartphones, while representing devices of one category: drop, water and dust resistant devices, differ in details. The differences are discernible in the design, technical parameters and thus in the performance, as well as the equipment demonstrating additional capabilities.
– The implemented division into sub-lines is another response of our company to feedback from HAMMER users and analysis of their expectations. Moreover, the division into lines increases the clarity of HAMMER’s offer and strengthens the positioning of solutions due to their main application – explains Rafał Madera, Marketing Director of mPTech. – HAMMER phones, smartphones and accessories, which have always been manufactured to meet the needs of specific professional groups and for all activities like sport, outdoor and travel, have now been divided and assigned to categories according to production principles. As a result, customers will have a clear understanding of which model is better suited to their needs or activities. Now everyone has a slightly simplified choice, but this is only our suggestion, our recommendation. The division into lines is part of the brand’s long-term communication strategy and further products and activities will be created within them. The division will be relevant and reflected in the types of marketing activities undertaken, tailored to the typology of target groups for each sub-line, and in visual communication – adds Rafał Madera.
