Having access to customer insights and analytics in emerging markets can greatly assist growing companies. We work with our clients to build a unique advantage in traditionally “data dark” environments, regions where incisive customer data is scarce. Even in areas where data is available, it’s not structured in a way that offers any meaningful value.
Our unique advantage comes from our ability to understand what the data means—by curating, merging, and modeling our proprietary customer databases, traditional primary research, emerging digital listening technologies, and syndicated sources.
But access is only half the battle. The other half is understanding what this data means—and how it can shape a go-to-market strategy and help drive the business. Our customer insight consultants help companies on both fronts.
