WIRED UK recently reviewed the best cameras for kids and teens, and myFirst Camera 2 developed by our client Oaxis has won the much coveted ‘Wired recommends’ award as”the best kid’s camera you can buy right now”!

How did Oaxis achieve such international expansion success?

Now lets focus on our client, Oaxis. They’re a Singapore based business that had spent 4 years, sizeable sums of money and tried to work with a number of distributors in their attempts to access the very competitive UK market.

It wasn’t working, as a ScaleUp company like Oaxis need specific focus and support. With such competition in market, they needed to solve the problem of ‘where to start’ in order to gain traction.

We invested a huge amount of time and expertise to create their unique go-to-market strategy, complete with competitive benchmarking that targeted specific partners across retail, e-commerce and distribution. The objective was to identify key gaps in the market, however small, to gain product ranging.

We had tried for 4 years to access the UK market and Bridgehead achieved successful market entry for us inside 90 days.

We broke down the barriers for Oaxis, creating them a bridgehead into the UK market.

As guaranteed, we identified key target customers and closed 5 channel partners for Oaxis inside 90 days. We also closed major retailers such as Selfridges, Shop Direct and Dixons to become resellers of the Oaxis MyFirst product range.
