However, the sheer volume of data available can quickly consume all available resources in trying to identify, filter, extract, summarize and act on this flood of dynamic data on a timely basis.
To compound the problem, competitive and market intelligence obtained today can, and often does, change tomorrow. A meaningful competitive intelligence function is a continuous process of researching, analyzing, extracting, reporting, and acting on information as it changes.
In spite of the vast amount of data available, attempting to manually track this volume of ever changing competitive and market information can be an expensive and resource consuming process, which is why crucial competitive and market information often goes overlooked and underutilized - truly a case of “data overload and information shortage.”
AttaainCI was created to solve this problem. Its proprietary information monitoring technologies can easily identify, track and report on all of the companies, people and markets crucial to success in your various lines of business.
Attaain Inc. delivers “active intelligence for strategic advantage” with AttaainCI, the award-winning web-based solution for researching, analyzing and real-time tracking of competitive business intelligence and market intelligenceon key companies, people and markets. The AttaainCI Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) system is used for business development in a wide range of industries to identify and track new sales prospects, existing customer growth opportunities, competitor activities, strategic partner prospects, industry developments and more, across single or multiple lines of business.
