Reasons to use- Reasons to buy

In today’s competitive marketplace, customers have choices and maintain perceptions of what a product or service means to them. SFA thinks of positioning as a lever and it’s what differentiates a brand in the customer’s mind. To move ahead of the competition, one must ask a simple question: Why am I unique?

Redefining a maturing product line

Redefining a maturing product line

The Carter-Thomason II Port Closure System is a perfect example of the innovation that drives CooperSurgical, a highly-regarded maker of medical devices for women's health care.

With the original system used to date in millions of procedures, sales had begun to flatten as the product matured. CooperSurgical took steps to significantly improve the design of the latest product and asked SFA to help focus the products value proposition.

SFA Marketing helped to revitalize the Carter-Thomason System and positioned the device to address the complications and challenges associated with closing obese patients (40% of surgical patents) following laparoscopic procedures. That messaging has proven to be extremely effective and today, the Carter-Thomason closure systems are among CooperSurgical's top-selling product brands.
