Technology Alert Service
Our clients provide us with several key areas of interest, and we provide alerts throughout the month on new products, technologies and advances in line with their interest. We track small firms (hardest for your own info services people), new patents, university advances, research grants, technical and trade journals, and competitor developments, among other things. Our goal is to alert you to key developments before they become widely known, and to augment your other information sources. Click here for more info.
Target areas are the status of competing technology, who the key players are, up and comers, what products they are offering, how they are marketing and distributing their products, quantifying market size/demand, and identifying emerging technologies, trends and sources. We are identifying both threats and opportunities.
