“Being in the U.S. medical field, information is key…critical. Through an extensive and lengthy research process, I was fortunate to find Octopus. Anytime you start working with new associates, it’s difficult to find the perfect combination of my 5 P’s; professional, proactive, proficient, persistent and passionate. It’s unusual to find all 5 in one team, but when I do, they are part of my strategic team going forward”.

Building Main Contractor

Director

There is no comparison to what Octopus does

“There is no comparison to what Octopus does. Amazing how much Intelligence you found. It was interesting seeing Big 4 firms putting together their reports. Everyone expects these providers to charge a premium fee for their name. The quality of the work is always poor, but justified by the decision-maker as “If one of the Big 4 provide this then others couldn’t do any better” What they don’t have that you do have, is the credibility and ability to harvest information they can’t provide in the field of market intelligence gathering”.
