Only a few weeks ago we presented the free public profiles on the platform Companies and Markets: clear and informative company dossiers at a click – including simple graphical presentations. Part of this free offer are also the technology profiles available for many companies. These illustrate how often certain technologies are mentioned in connection with a company. For this purpose, an algorithm evaluates countless online sources – including, for example, concrete job advertisements – and weights them based on the frequency with which the various technologies can be assigned to the respective company.
With a little industry knowledge, these data can be used to draw excellent conclusions about the technological status of the company concerned, its development and future viability. Which topics that will have a decisive influence on the future of the respective industry already play an important role for this company? How much attention does this topic receive compared to other companies? And how does this change over time? If you evaluate the daily updated data with a trace of creativity, you can gain amazing insights into the structure of your customers or competitors. A few examples:
Identify sales opportunities
Companies and Markets technology profile helps you identify opportunities for your sales. For example, if your company offers innovative software, it is very valuable to know which systems are currently in use with a potential customer. If, for example, your solution has a convenient interface to software that is used throughout the company, you will immediately have an excellent sales argument. However, if you are able to observe the daily updated data over time and discover that a competitor seems to have convinced this customer straight away, you better concentrate your resources on more promising leads. But even for a machine builder, it can be a valuable piece of information that a certain production company seems to be modernizing its production. In short: With the technology profile you get comprehensive insights at a glance, which at best could have been obtained from a human discussion partner on the customer side after many detailed discussions.
Assess business risks
It is probably not worth it for you to rely on a customer or supplier who misses the essential trends in his industry. One way to anticipate this is to use the technology profile of Companies and Markets to see how future-proof your potential business partners are. Especially in the case of medium-sized companies, about which comparatively little is publicly published, you will quickly receive a lot of enlightening data. A bank’s corporate client advisor, for example, uses this information to support a planned investment. Or the buyer of a manufacturer who has to choose between different suppliers. Reduce the risk of default by working with promising business partners.
The better you know your competitors, the better you can sharpen your own profile. Keep an eye on developments at other companies in your industry and draw the necessary conclusions for your own strategic orientation. What trends does the technological pioneer in your industry focus on? What does the market leader react to more slowly than you? And with what technological visions do your competitors advertise for highly competitive specialists? You can find the answer in the technology profile on Companies and Markets. If you evaluate the data under the right premises.
