Other than accuracy, there’s possibly nothing more important to competitive and market intelligence than its timeliness. Having the ability to look back in hindsight and determine what went well or wrong in a given situation — without any major repercussions — is a luxury the majority of executive leaders simply don’t have.
Of course, many professional services out there are advertising their predictive abilities. But on closer inspection, the results of most of these services fall far short of what they promise — which is to give businesses a view of their market’s future so that they’re better prepared for what’s to come. Fortunately, at Proactive Worldwide, we’re in the business of keeping our promises and living up to — and often exceeding — our clients’ expectations.
We possess decades of experience in the competitive intelligence — or CI — industry, so we know there are no substitutes for thorough research, in-depth analysis and informed reporting when we’re asked to help businesses prepare themselves for market surprises and/or disrupters. It’s also why we’re passionate about we do — unlocking the proven power of CI to benefit our clients.
Our development of business early warning briefs is a direct result of our talent and ability to recognize market indicators our clients can use to their advantage on a regular basis. It’s not something we take lightly, which is why we’re currently engaged in active research in more than 47 countries across every major industry — from biotechnology and pharmaceuticals to financial services and consumer goods.
Strategic Early Warning Programs
Nobody appreciates negative surprises. And in the business world, negative surprises can mean the end of a product, a line of goods or even an entire company. To help our clients mitigate this issue, Proactive Worldwide’s Strategic Early Warning consulting was developed to offer a significant measure of protection against unexpected market and competitive developments.
Our skilled intelligence analysts leverage our extensive human source networks and monitoring technologies to warn you of market and competitive changes that upend the assumptions in your business plan. This mitigates your risks and enables you to act on new opportunities.
Our ongoing collection and aggregation processes enable us to analyze and escalate the news and intelligence that is most important and relevant to your business. Our professional research approach is well-established, and we’re able to draw on our up-to-date proprietary databases that allow superior real-time insight mining. In addition, we have multi-lingual, cross-cultural and multiple market experience that we combine with the most effective and ethical methods of intelligence gathering in use today.
As a result, we can provide you with actionable intelligence and alerts that include the following features:
- Market Risks/Opportunities: Including favorable/unfavorable trends, shifting customer preferences, market entrants and emerging business models
- Competitive Actions: Including current competitor strategies and tactics, emerging competitors, and new technologies that are enabling new types of competitors
- Conference/Event Intelligence: Including trade shows, promotions and messaging, competitor presentations, opinion leader perspectives and new innovations
- Insight Analysis: Including competitive actions and performance, merger and acquisition strategies and rationale, potential future scenarios, the application of social media trends, and government, regulatory and legal assessments
