Negotiation & Meeting Intelligence

Get up to speed on industry conditions before meeting a supplier or buyer. By demonstrating in-depth knowledge of your suppliers’ industry, you gain instant credibility and trust leading to strength in negotiations and value creation for you and your supply chain partners.

For time-poor readers, our Executive Summaries, which are based on the full report, provide information fast. Part of the content is presented as negotiation situation Q&A that allows you to gauge the strategic position of a supplier.

Supply Chains

See the supply chain for thousands of industries. Use key statistics to work out major player market share and strategies. Average company size and industry concentration help explain bargaining dynamics and market power. Our 5-year revenue and profit forecasts show you where buyers and suppliers are headed and explain why. Determine the influence, benefits and risks of using overseas suppliers and learn where suppliers are geographically located in order to target competitive areas for lower pricing.

Supplier & Buyer Review

Now more than ever your firm must be selective about its suppliers and aware of the risks facing key buyers. Ensure that you are working with companies that meet industry best practices. Our forward-looking Risk Ratings and revenue forecasts help you identify any “rotten teeth” in your supply chain. Our risk scores form part of the procurement process in many major organizations.

Proactive clients frequently review trade credits, tightening terms for high risk and volatile industries where cash flow problems are more prevalent. They are able to improve terms, and therefore strengthen relationships, for buyers operating in stable industries.
