Market Intelligence

The Problem

Client licenses 35 different syndicated subscription market intelligence sources. Thousands of users inside the company could benefit from the market intelligence being licensed in departments like product management, marketing management, key account sales, product development, and M&A. But users don’t use many of the sources because it is too laborious to manually search 35 different sources one at a time. Collecting and collating usage data across the sources is difficult because the content publishers hold all the data, making it hard to balance subscription cost with value.

Client Objectives:

  1. Reduce time and effort to locate relevant information to quickly make smart business decisions
  2. Eliminate searching of multiple sites and the need for multiple passwords
  3. Improve knowledge management and increase employee productivity
  4. Increase content usage
  5. Consolidate content usage statistics
  6. Reduce infrastructure costs and legal exposure
  7. Eliminate duplicate research projects and purchases
