Branding and maintaining a vibrant van fleet for Sky
Sky is one of Europe’s leading entertainment and communications business. It operates a specially converted commercial van fleet for its home service engineers, who travel across the country installing and maintaining in-home entertainment systems and broadband products.
A ubiquitous brand, Sky's vans help ensure its profile is kept high, maximising brand and product awareness. The full wraps we make and install on its fleet are often cited as the benchmark in vehicle livery.
This case study explores how we brand and maintain a vibrant van fleet for Sky.
A business delivering HD content needs HD vans
Sky's UK fleet of over 3,000 vehicles operates nationwide. Its engineers rely on their vans to ensure a responsive service is provided to customers and revenue is generated from new installations. For Sky, its fleet is a valuable communication tool, which effectively reaches the homes of its existing and potential customers.
- Ensure the vehicle liveries have high visual impact and high-definition image quality.
- Manage multiple designs that promote the diverse and constantly updated products and content.
- Roll-out new designs and new build programmes with speed and efficiency.
- Effectively maintain the fleet livery to minimise vehicle off road (VOR) related costs.
