After the success of the previous case study video we produced for Rhipe showcasing the partnership between Rhipe, Parallo and Cin7, Rhipe asked us to produce a success story video between Putti and Flatpack global.
Putti is a local but world-renowned App development company based in Takapuna. They have developed many of New Zealand’s well know Apps, that you probably use on a daily basis like the NZ Heralds News App, Hirepool and Wendy food chain.
Flatpack global is also a local Kiwi business which offers general assembly and kitchen installation services in New Zealand, Australia and the UK. Have you ever bought a flatpack product from Mitre 10 and it took you hours to assemble? Well, they offer a service to assemble it for you.
Rhipe wanted to showcase the relationship between Flatpack global and Putti and how they worked together using Microsoft cloud-based solutions. Flatpack needed a comprehensive solution where their franchises and technicians could efficiently manage everything. This included scheduling, invoices, quotes, messaging, client management, product information and more.
CAW worked closely with the Flatpack and Putti team to help tell their success story. We discussed the outline and basic structure of telling a good story which Kristy from Flatpack took on board and put together a great first draft. We then helped them tweak it and were ready to create the shot list and basic storyboard for the video shoot.
The project took us just short of two days to film. One the first day we shot all of the interviews at the Flatpack offices and then made our way to Grant’s house to film the assembly process with one of the Flatpack team. From there, we made our way to Mitre 10 where we filmed the in-store purchasing process. On day two, we went back to the Flatpack offices and filmed all of the cutaways of the team working together and discussing the project as well as the classic Kiwi BBQ. Then we moved to the Putti offices in Takapuna where we had two of the Flatpack team look at the design work and discuss elements they wanted to update. We also filmed one of the Rhipe team working alongside one of the Putti team on Microsoft Azure.
The edit came along really well as we had planned well for this shoot. The Flatpack team, as well as Putti, were very helpful in making sure the shoot ran smoothly. It definitely makes a huge difference when a company is willing to invest time in the pre-production.
Overall, Rhipe, Flatpack global and Putti were very happy with the outcome of the video. We also created a 15 and 30 second version for them to amplify on social media.
