CI, Competitive intelligence, mystery shopping, market intelligence, competitor analysis: these terms describe a set of unique research methodologies that provide insights for managers to develop and implement strategic and tactical plans.

These CI methodologies are designed to provide real-world and real-time experiences as seen through the eyes of clients, sales and customer service reps, suppliers, distributors and competitors.

These insights simply cannot be provided through quantitative and qualitative research, which depend on data gathered after the client-vendor experience, also known as CX or Customer Experience.

This attribute of providing senior managers and decision-makers with real-world and real-time client-vendor experiences (CX or customer experience) is what sets CI apart from traditional market research. It is this vital intelligence that can be used to guide and inform decision-makers as they seek ways to better serve their clients, outsmart their competitors, and avoid getting blindsided by unexpected events.

This is why industry leaders turn to competitive intelligence for guidance for all key strategic and corporate decision-making.
