It's competitive out there

You can't get the better of your competitors and market if you don't know where or who they are.

Get the better of your competitors

You can’t steal a lead on your competition if you don’t know where or who they are. 

Nor can you meet market needs if you do not know what these are. In our experience, too many companies find it too easy to dismiss competitors as irrelevant. Others do not know their market well enough and are missing out on business. Many still make decisions without knowing what’s going on and who they are dealing with.

It’s a dangerous game to play. And it’s why our clients have the absolute confidence that we will give them the Intelligence, Diligence and tactics they need to act decisively — armed with meaningful real-world knowledge. And we can do the same for you.

Intelligence

Answering the questions you need to ask

Questions usually about your Competitors, Market Sectors, Private Equity Investments, Acquisitions, Litigation, Reputation, Profiling, Future Strategies, Countries, and Products. Also, many questions associated with People and  Life Sciences.

Every business has lots of questions

And yours will be the same. Octopus has unrivalled experience in finding the answers to all these questions, and anything your business needs to know. We answer questions like, what are your competitors planning to do next? Where can you win more business, or what should your next move be? And how do we minimise risk? Should we invest? Also, what should we do next, which market should we move into, what is going to happen and why are we struggling to compete? And should we employ that person or do business with them?

Protect your interests, seize opportunities and minimise risk

We map out what’s happening, joining the dots, find the patterns and look after your interests. Have the certainty and confidence that when you call in Octopus, we will be watching your back and will get the job done. We let you know what’s really going on with objective and independent Intelligence and Market Research.

Diligence

Discreet Independent, timely and reliable diligence. For investigations, litigation, business disputes, investors and competitor wrongdoings. 

We help you see the real picture

Before it is too late, we will help you reveal what you could get yourself into. So you are forewarned, able to take precautions and sort things out should the sticky stuff hit the fan.

Advisory

Where to begin – Discovery

To get the best value from Intelligence, we create a process to meet your specific needs and experience. Before starting an Intelligence or Diligence project, it is essential to understand what are decisions and subsequent actions you need to take. We will create a clear picture of where you are now and where you want to be. Deliver great questions to get the best chance of achieving great Intelligence and Market Research.

Then what? – Counterstrike

Make the most of the excellent Intelligence to create growth, reduce risk and uncertainty. Harness insight to create an engaging, compelling and unique strategy, planning, transformation, customer propositions and marketing. Change is impacting on all aspects of our lives. Technology is developing all the time, and its progress is surrounded by a fog of misinterpretation, exaggeration, confusion and lies. All very risky when making decisions. We help you to decide what the best options are and then help you get on with it.
