They needed to reposition their offerings (after a significant acquisition) and wanted to showcase the effect their software could have on their customers on both a corporate and personal level. They wanted to play with the power that their products can have on a company.
They didn’t lead with a complex description. They wanted to connect with their customers, to make them feel intelligent, capable and admired. Swooned over, even.
