OUR PASSION: FACT-BASED DECISIONS

SMI identifies trends and builds market forecasts not just of today's markets, but of your future markets. This allows you to make decisions based on your future, not your past! We call this future - focused research.

FOUR AREAS OF RESEARCH

SMI develops market sizing forecasts and traditional SWOT analyses, and more. What sets us apart is our deep dive into the four distinct drivers of future opportunities:


PROJECT-BASED RESEARCH

SMI provides contracted research project work, whether you want to assess new markets, survey customers, analyze a competitors, or determine how emerging technologies or regulations will impact your business.


B2B CUSTOMER SURVEYS: WHAT'S THE WHY?

In B2B, 30 - 50 key customers make or break your business. You can't use internet surveys with these important clients. SMI conducts direct C-level interview surveys, giving you an honest, objective assessment of your clients' needs and issues. We get at the "why" of their thinking. We dig to understand not just how they feel, but the "why" behind it. "Why" drives decisions more than "what".
