How we help
Financial analysts’ inboxes are awash with qualitative studies, management commentary, and analyst takes. Investors use alternative data to cut through opinions and quantify customer trends, revenue growth, and market share changes using real customer data.
- Company Screening
- Earnings Predictions
- Company Health
Alternative data offers an alternative to qualitative net promoter scores (NPS), extensive consulting studies, small focus groups, and patchy syndicated data to inform strategists, marketers, and other corporate decision makers on their toughest questions.
- Performance Benchmarking
- Market Share
- Customer Behavior
- Macro Consumer Economy
Management, strategy, and marketing consultants need both a 10,000-foot view and detailed company knowledge to effect change. Alternative data contextualizes entire industries, while quickly drilling down into the differences that separate individual players.
- Industry & Company Context
- Macro Trends
- Company KPI Tracking
- Thought Leadership
