Competitive analysis has received greater attention recently for several reasons. Businesses of all sizes are facing more intense competition from sophisticated competitors, dealing with shorter product life cycles, and struggling to respond to dynamic environments, particularly in the area of technological innovation.

The key to competitive intelligence is that second word – intelligence. Information gathered however formally or informally won’t help a company unless it is analyzed thoughtfully or carefully. Only then can the information inform strategic or other decisions in the organization that are actionable..

Most relevant data points we gather about your competitors include:
  1. How are they and their products perceived and received by their customers?
  2. Entrenchment Index: How strongly loyal or open to defection are your competitors' customers?
  3. Future directions-where they are headed, anticipating future moves on products and pricing
