Not every organisation can justify a corporate information department. However, without such expertise, it can be hard to know whether or not you are getting value for money from your spend on business information tools.
The combination of good online business information tools and focused research is crucial in retaining and acquiring clients. We are able to provide:
- Support and guidance on purchasing your information resources, ensuring you get value for money whilst minimising the time you spend looking after them.
- Supplier audit. Many people inherit a series of contracts but never get the time to review them. We can audit your contracts covering such matters as licensing, usage, value for money and alternative suppliers.
- Access to business research and analysis including company profiles, competitive intelligence and current awareness.
- Training staff on how to undertake their own research. We can provide training for all levels of staff from senior executives to PAs. Our courses typically include advice on useful free websites, the pitfalls to avoid when using free sources, time-saving tips when using Google, using your key information resources and synthesising the information.
