"Before RivalMap came along, competitive information existed on individual desktops, in bits and pieces in our CRM database, and, least helpful of all, in the heads of old-timers. Needless to say, there was no way to add new information, and certainly not in a format that could be accessed by everyone. RivalMap changed that. Now our employees can enter information into an accessible and easy-to-use app so that everyone can see, at a glance, how we rate against each different category of competition."
In most organizations, both historical and breaking market knowledge are scattered across many different sources. Information might be buried in email inboxes, sit in outdated documents, or get lost on general corporate communication tools - and that's if you're lucky. Most likely the vital knowledge is in the heads of the employees, especially those out in front of customers.
RivalMap provides an easy-to-use system for connecting your organization and managing market knowledge.
