Competitive Research

Data that gives you an Edge

Raw talent. Stand-out skills. Gut intuition.

No business can thrive without these ingredients – but there’s more to sustained success than talent. Taking your business to the next level requires you to have an analytic, data-driven edge over your competitors. Competitive research provides that data, empowering you to work smarter and more creatively.

Information about competitors gives your business a fuller picture – of goals to meet, and of challenges to beat. But it’s not just the data –it’s what you do with it. Evolution Consulting interprets the data to give your business a practical guide for improving sales and increasing revenue. Evolution gives you that much needed edge.

Simply having information on competitors isn’t enough. Without clear, actionable recommendations, data is just that – data. When research isn’t actionable, there’s only one outcome: your company wastes valuable time deciphering figures and charts that lead nowhere.

Instead of bombarding you with useless statistics and flashy presentations, we give you a comprehensive, personalized roadmap with step-by-step, nuts-and-bolts guidance. Senior members will handle your project from start to finish, and won’t walk away until the full value of the agreement has been realized. We’re engaged, experienced, and enthusiastic – and we’ll never leave you scratching your head at what our data means.
