competitive intelligence competitive insights competitor competitive data market research data decisionsCompetitors are either fierce or planning to become very fierce. Unchecked they will chip away at your customer base, supplant your brand and put a stranglehold on markets. Our Competitive Intelligence Insights (CI) service is an important weapon in your arsenal to fend them off quickly in existing markets and evaluate their strengths and weaknesses in new markets under consideration.

Why is CI so vital? Comprehensive CI enables you to more quickly and confidently, make key growth-related business decisions, and successfully implement action plans based on CI findings, to:

  1. Grow market share, increase win/loss rate and share of wallet; improve customer experience, and protect your overall brand health.
  2.  Identify profitable new markets, segments, solutions, and entry points to achieve your growth goal.
  3. Adapt to market changes by adjusting, or creating, new corporate, marketing and sales strategies; positioning and messaging across all channels and touch points; and pricing models.

Gathering and analyzing the right competitive intelligence more than pays for itself by predicting the future, reducing risks and costs by preventing inadequately informed decisions, and finding the best opportunities for growth.

Why companies engage us. They were considering updating their strategy, launching a new solution, or entering a new market, and needed to expand on previous CI data, or gather new data altogether. They wanted an objective comprehensive approach, and didn’t have the in-house skills or bandwidth to do it in time. Or, previous vendor projects had not delivered the expected result – the competitive, customer, solution and market insights needed to win. So, stakeholders did not have enough confidence in the data to move forward. Paralysis.

What we deliver. Twenty plus years of research experience delivering solid, actionable, CI insights. We do this by defining, gathering, analyzing, and distributing information. We dig deep to understand the questions you need answered, and the focus and scope of your project. We design the best research instrument, and determine the best ways to field it. Just a few aspects of our research are primary, social listening, tapping existing customers, etc. We provide CI in both an offensive and defensive context. Using our proprietary research methodology, data science, and the power of analytics, we show you how to capture and convert the most important data into actionable plans.
