Research support helps information provider deliver high quality service

An international intelligence firm was challenged by the diverse service needs of its customers


An international information and intelligence provider needed to track competitor and customer news, financial intelligence, and people movement for various industries. More than 20 sectors including construction, machine tools, mining, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, power, ship building, etc.; and hundreds of companies from across the globe needed to be monitored on a daily basis.


The key challenges that the client faced:

  • Their engagement required a near real time turnaround on research
  • The volume of work was immense – hundreds of sources, and all news had to be curated/edited
  • There were daily deliverables across time zones
  • Their customers were geographically dispersed across North America, Europe and East Asia


Since their in-house team could not handle the volume of work, time zones and turnaround times effectively, they were looking for a partner.

ValueNotes set up a centralized research support cell for the client, providing assistance at every stage of the value chain. This includes:
– News monitoring and competitor tracking on a daily basis, across 20+ industries
