GIA Webinar to Demonstrate How Companies Can Increase Efficiency of Market Intelligence

Helsinki, Finland (PressExposure) January 23, 2014 -- Competitive advantage in a globalized marketplace can be gained or lost by how well a company conducts market intelligence. According to the 2013 Global Market Intelligence Survey by Global Intelligence Alliance (GIA) however, 45 percent of companies say a lack of information about their market environment and competition delays decisions.

The strategic market intelligence group says that as an internal corporate function, the key purpose of market intelligence is to enable people in the organization to make better informed decisions as effectively and efficiently as possible.
