The objectives of this research were:
  1. To provide market, client, competitor and sector insight, initially focused on supporting Sales & Marketing, but down the line to support strategic and product management initiatives
  2. To equip the firm with insight to empower staff with the relevant information
  3. To provide a factual, current, actionable insight of the company performance
