The senior management team of a Silicon Valley based software vendor realized that they were falling behind the start-ups in their core market.

The product management team proposed an idea for a new product to leverage the existing infrastructure technology & to accelerate sales. Senior management was uncertain as to the viability of the new product and sought a 3rd party opinion.

Intellectual Property Protection & Revenue Mix Modeling

Case Study:
The senior management team of a Chicago based technology vendor realized that they were in danger of losing their IP rights & the rights to a lucrative new revenue stream to a customer.

Expertise in presenting the language in a win/win manner
A more expansive view of the revenue model & mix
On-site presentations and meetings with the customer to make the changes needed

Two technology vendors in the analytics market realized that they were not growing at the same rate as the broader market & prospects seemed reluctant to enter into sales cycles with their teams.

In both cases the senior management team had little to no visibility into what the broader market was offering and the current pricing models that were prevalent.
