Crank Software

Crank Software specializes in embedded user interface (UI) solutions that enable R&D teams to more quickly develop UIs for resource-constrained embedded devices like in-car graphical displays and animated GPS systems. 

When Crank needed to launch the latest version of their flagship software, Storyboard™ Suite, they chose TREW Marketing for our experience in developing product launch plans that target embedded design engineers. Crank sought to increase awareness of Storyboard Suite, drive web visits and capture leads through software evaluation downloads.

  • 85% increase in evaluation downloads
  • 56% increase in online leads following the launch

  • 237 news release postings to online sources
  • 2 contributed articles in RTC and Embedded Computing Design
  • +3-minutes time-on-site to launch landing page

Beyond the Storyboard Suite launch, TREW Marketing has served as Crank Software’s marketing partner for ongoing strategy consulting, brand and product-level messaging and positioning, media relations, content marketing, partner co-marketing, search engine optimization, search advertising, social media and email marketing services.
