How do we do it?
We bring you the answers you need to know
The answers you need to know
Octopus provides the answers to the questions you need to ask. So how do we do it? The simplest answer is: in a way that you will have never encountered before. Answers and tactics to help win the skirmishes and the decisive victory.
Intelligence from the horse’s mouth
We go further to speak to the right people, in the right way and then look for patterns. Also, we are brilliant at asking the right questions at the right time and seeing themes reveal themselves.
Our reach around the world
We travel the world to find what we are looking for. Also, we don’t pretend we run around like James Bond, but we do whatever it takes to get the job done and speak to the right people. We do bring graft, guile, determination and total commitment to the mission.
A tenacious approach
A background in British military intelligence, backed by MBA-level experience gives us a unique edge when pursuing the answers to your questions. Tenacity balanced with discipline opens up a whole world of information inaccessible to others.
Straight talking feedback
Not for us some ten-step model with a clever name. And no pseudo-academic description packed with business school speak. We produce usable Competitive Intelligence in a plain English report, presentation or monthly bulletin.
A strictly commercial focus
No out of the box thinking here (all this means is you are still trapped inside). We help you define the questions you need to ask to get the answers you need to know. It’s a simple but highly effective and confidential process.
A personal service for you
We don’t pull reports off shelves. It may be easier, but we’d be just like the rest. We don’t clock watch, because you pay for the answers not time it takes for us to get them.
You get the idea
We answer the questions you need to know without the fluff. We can even work with you to create some actions from our intelligence.
But what is Competitive Intelligence?
