Market Research and Consulting
See the unseen
Henry Ford, as the story goes, said that if he had asked people what they wanted, they would have demanded faster horses. Instead, he gave them an invention that forever changed the world. Ford’s ability to see and meet a demand that hadn’t even been articulated is the essence of whitespace discovery, and this is exactly the ability that today’s businesses must master if they are to survive and flourish.
Whitespace identification is the first step in creating new value for customers, but it is also largely an unknown landscape with pitfalls and obstacles that a business must avoid. The constant state of flux created by economic and tech changes breeds an environment of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity that can paralyze a business. And the only way forward is through advance intelligence about the current and changing business environments.
WhipSmart’sraison d’être is to equip businesses and organizations with the knowledge and intelligence they need to understand changing market conditions and identify whitespaces that offer them the highest potential for growth, be it into new markets, new geographies, or entirely new business lines.
Our whitespace mapping looks at both internal and external perspectives, i.e. the ability of business’s internal processes, systems, infrastructure to respond to new opportunities and threats, and external opportunities uncovered by changing market forces. Our reports bring both these aspects together to provide strategic and objective intelligence that a business can leverage to garner high business returns.
Using AI, we are making research more economical, thorough, and much, much faster, without sacrificing on data size or accuracy. Our experience in market assessment, competition mapping, and customer intelligence is giving data analytics traditional 20-20 hindsight a future-focused edge.
Both, the quantitative and qualitative intelligence of our reports go beyond narrow considerations, to provide big picture views that assess growth opportunities, size markets, map competition and spot opportunities, to help you make informed business decisions.
The most successful businesses understand the inherent ever-changing nature of markets, add to this the disruptions that technology brings and one can begin to appreciate the need for up-to-date intelligence. At WhipSmart we go beyond merely informing our clients about the current state of their markets and audiences to identify potential whitespaces created by the confluence of changing market elements, customer demands, and techno-innovations.
Powered by our constantly evolving AI engine, we are able to gather and sift through massive volumes of data from many disparate sources in a fraction of the time it would take conventional methods. This artificial intelligence behind our data gathering is balanced by the very human intellect of our senior analysts, all of whom are acknowledged leaders in their respective industry and market segments.
