We track significant market events as they happen, provide valuable insight into competitors, and deliver in-depth understanding of competitor product positionings, strengths and weaknesses.

Our Competitive Intelligence supports the knowledge requirements of executive, strategy, product development, sales and marketing functions. Services include:

  • Intelligence Reports

    • Analysis of major product, marketing or business initiatives undertaken by competitors that may affect other market players, impact on buyer behavior or influence the market's direction.
    • Full Intelligence Reports are delivered within 24-to-48 hours of detecting high-impact market activity. If even more rapid response is required, we generate Intelligence Alerts within hours.
    • We also provide Intelligence Alerts on activities by challengers or new entrants that may not have immediate impact but should be monitored.
  • Advisory Reports

    In-depth reviews of important trends or issues and analysis of their likely impact.
  • Company Assessments

    • Analysis of competitors' strengths and weaknesses, highlighting areas of opportunity and potential threats that you need to manage.
    • Company Assessments report on all your major competitors, with coverage routinely extending to the companies accounting for 90% of sales in any given market. They also cover companies that may be smaller but have potential to be game changers longer term.
    • Assessments include a Competitive Index scoring companies from 1-to-10 on critical categories including strategy, sales and marketing, product portfolio, service and support and partnerships. The Index identifies competitors as either a Leader, Very Strong, Strong, Competitive or Vulnerable to help you allocate resources most effectively.
  • Market Disruptor Profiles

    • Reports on the suppliers making news in your sectors, even if they're relative newcomers with limited market share. For example - innovative startups, new entrants that are gaining traction, or established players making new moves and generating differentiation in a particular niche.
    • While Company Assessments provide deep competitive position insight, Market Disruptor Profiles look at new initiatives and the basis on which they are attempting to shake things up in the market.
  • Product Assessments

    • Highly detailed views of competitors' products and services to identify differentiators or opportunities.
    • Our Product Assessments report on all the big-selling products in your market, with coverage routinely extending to the products making up 90% of sales. They also cover smaller sellers that are showing potential to be game changers longer term.
    • Product Assessments include a Current Perspective rating that assesses each product's comparative threat level in the market place.
