The challenge

In order to exploit their cutting edge IoT connectivity solutions, KPN were keen to explore European markets completely new to the company.


Their two-fold strategy aimed to identify potential resellers and establish innovative partnerships, and subsequently determine end customer opportunities. With the need for an international, multi-lingual sales and marketing expert, they engaged durhamlane.

We created reseller and end customer marketing campaigns, in order to generate marketing-qualified leads in both Italian and French markets. Once the campaigns took hold, we expanded these activities for KPN into Germany.


Our buyer intent platform identified trends in the European IoT markets and tracked the online activity of KPN’s target companies.

The outcome for KPN

Across a twelve month period, we realised 127 opportunities between reseller and end-customer projects, 44.8% of which were marketing qualified leads. durhamlane created a rich sales pipeline for KPN in their new target markets.

"We decided to engage with durhamlane because they demonstrated their expertise to generate the right leads. We were really impressed with the agility and the dedication of the team… They are a part of our team because they work so closely with everyone - that is the biggest asset of durhamlane and what has proved to be a success for us. I would definitely recommend durhamlane to anyone who is wanting to grow."
