Robin NeidorfWhy do you deliver current awareness or intelligence services?

Most information teams we work with provide these services for a combination of reasons:

Business development; Strategy; Customer relations; Competitive intelligence; Product development; Marketing info centre.

But can you measure it? Can you demonstrate ROI and improve it over time?

Yes, you can: The Jinfo Consulting workshop, "Awareness and intelligence evaluation", can show you how.

But start first with the resources in our Research Focus, "Intelligence systems - intelligence 2020":

For more than 10 years, Jinfo has studied the news category. We've seen just about every combination of source material, technology and use case. Let us help you with the next iteration of yours.
