Roland DG.

Marketing transformation across EMEA.

Roland DG are world-leaders in digital printing technology. They are highly sales-driven with a complex dealership model operating globally. Over the last few years, Roland DG has restructured its operations creating a central EMEA team creating a shift in marketing strategy, marketing operations and go-to-market strategy. 

Understand the problem

With a fragmented team across EMEA and product-focused approach, there was a shift from product-centric marketing to always-on, customer-focused marketing. The marketing transformation was focused on data-led evidence to power new strategies.

Customer and market research unlocked evidence to support a customer strategy which looked at rethinking segmentation, creating customer profiles and customer-focused messaging.

Strategic approach

For Roland DG, the strategy was about transitioning the team to a customer-first approach, centralising across Europe and building the brand in the medium term – all firsts for Roland DG.

Modern has been central to bringing the team along including roadmaps, segmentation models, customer journey mapping, insights and proposition development. From a digital demand perspective, the programme has gone from single markets to a full-funnel demand programme including connected TV to search ads.


Collaborating with Modern has been transformative for Roland DG and propelled our marketing efforts in the EMEA region to new heights.
