Project execution

  • Possible partners

    Our team conducted a research on potential sales partners fulfilling predetermined criteria (e.g. size, geography, potential of their solutions to be complement to the product, market segment) and created a long-list of preselected companies

  • Evaluation of selected firms

    Each of the preselected companies was evaluated on basis of their product portfolio and its technological features

  • Prioritizing partnerships

    Based on the evaluation, each company was assigned to one of three priority categories which served as recommendation to the customer, which companies would deserve a higher level of interest

  • List of used cases

    The final file additionally contained a list of used cases describing real-life application of solutions of the pre-selected companies
