CLIENT DESCRIPTION: Greenlines Technology is a Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) company with a groundbreaking trip planning app, “Cowlines,” that provides users with the optimal route around cities by combining any mode of transport available into a seamless, multimodal trip. Cowlines is a unique app capable of quantifying the modal shift and subsequent carbon emission reductions produced by each user. Cowlines is a highly scalable and low cost solution that puts the environment and the people first while fighting climate change to push cities towards smarter futures.
After Cowlines’ successful beta launch in September 2018, Greenlines was seeking a PR agency to announce their North American launch in over 62 cities including the metro regions of Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, San Diego, Toronto, NYC and others. As one of the most ambitious app roll-outs in recent years, Greenlines was looking for an external communications company to help them extend their PR footprint to new markets in North America. Despite receiving favourable press in local media outlets in Canada during its beta launch, Cowlines was not a well-known entity in all of its North American launch markets. Not only did Cowlines require an experienced PR team focusing in US media, but they also required a PR partner capable of working within a compressed time frame. Magnolia recommended a media relations program for Cowlines’ NA launch to target both the business and consumer markets in key metropolitan regions.
