Technology Market Research

Many technology companies are nowadays using technology market research to help them identify and leverage new sales opportunities. While market research can be a highly effective method of identifying new sales opportunities it is also important to be very clear on the priorities and goals of your market research. It is important to make a clear distinction between research for the sale of product development (for example) and research that is designed to ultimately uncover a sales opportunity.

Getting the best out of your technology market research can be a difficult challenge. Whether you are trying to use market research to help product development, product marketing launch or lead generation, there are a wide range of factors to consider.

The emphasis for this project is on an ERP implementation in the US and North American market with the remaining global offices thereafter. The Client is considering both an upgrade of the existing MS Dynamics NAV ver 3 to Dynamics AX as well as a replacement of MS Dynamics NAV.

Is it to understand customer needs, understand product performance or to generate sales opportunities. The above samples had a singular goal of generating sales opportunities for clients and the campaign criteria for this was very clear.
