Our Business Intelligence reports are tailor made and contain data about improper business action

Customer Satisfaction

"... the data which we got from HofmannConsult about this client from St. Petersburg were excellent and precisely what we expected"…. (a Bavarian automotive supplier).

…after receiving your report about this Chinese company, we are totally happy” (a German machinetool manufacturer).

Statements like these come from the needs oriented reports. In case there are open questions, they go back to the analyst who was researching for the report.

Our reporting is much more that formal reports about credit ratings in western standardization. They give an insight into business behavior and processes (such as following legal situation) in CIS countries and China. This makes our reports more comprehensive and valuable than the routine reporting of well known western institutions. Our representatives collect data locally, sometimes even pass by at the researched institution and premises for first hand information.

Partnering in the CIS, Eastern Europe, and China

To enter complex markets like the CIS or China make it necessary to include partnerships in the business strategy. In order to save time and money, and to avoid critical losses in market entry, we envisage the following:

  • We assume that your market entry strategy logically requires a certain profile about distribution systems and their partners needed.
  • Your Marketing Mix (Products / Services, Pricing / Conditions of payment, Distribution Systems, Communication Mix) for your strategic Market segments should lead to the necessary amount and type of distribution partners.

Data such as the following should then be defined, may be as “need to have” or as “nice to have”:

  • Geographic area
  • Demographic criteria like size of company, Product portfolio, Markets served, competitive situation, Service capabilities etc.),
  • Competence and reputation in target markets, Service orientation,
  • Specific skills and know how in the industry,
  • Management, ownership, creditability,
  • Risk management (criminal action, court rulings against owners etc.), integrity, etc.

This could be a base to filter out concrete companies, which then could be screened in depth.
