Carestream DRX Mobile Fleet Deployment Kit
Carestream is a market leader for its portable X-ray unit, called the DRX-Revolution. Since its launch in 2012, the Revolution has transformed the market with its wireless digital detector coupled with ergonomic innovations previously unseen by the radiology community.
For this demand gen campaign, Carestream wanted to highlight improvements to the DRX-Revolution in addition to announcing a second, smaller unit, the DRX-Revolution Nano, positioned for daily chest rounds, extremity, PICU, ICU and NICU. The message needed to be crafted in a way that made buyers consider a fleet purchase of both DRX-Revolution and DRX-Revolution Nano units for their hospital.

STRATEGY AND CREATIVE EXECUTION
The goal of the campaign was to engage prospects with a new idea: The idea that the two Carestream mobile X-ray systems as a fleet represented a more flexible choice than having only one type of system. The creative strategy was designed to encourage the prospect to consider moving the mobile systems around the hospital, from room to room, considering the advantages of each system as a solution for either the pediatric room, the ICU, or as a unit that could be moved from one to another. Finally, we needed to create a piece memorable enough so that when the outbound phone team called, the prospect would be happy to accept the call.
We created a high-engagement direct mail format on a modest budget by using a very innovative mailer construction. The piece arrived flat but opened to create two divided hospital rooms – a neonatal ICU and a typical semi-private patient room – through the use of a unique pop-up panel. This created two copy panels for a
discussion on how each product, the DRX-Revolution and the DRX-Revolution Nano could be used effectively in each room setting.
To bring the portable X-ray fleet to life, we included two shrink-wrapped pouches, each holding five flat puzzle pieces (we created them from the product photos supplied by Carestream) that could be assembled by the recipient to create a paper replica of each product. (And while the puzzles were simple to assemble, we also shot two videos to explain the assembly and used them on the landing page.)
This campaign overachieved, delivering 191 leads (11.2% of those contacted via follow-up TM); 23 opportunities worth over $4.3 million.
