Experience with Leaddashboards“As an international consulting firm, new business development and therefore finding new projects is crucial to our business. When the first signals of a new local opportunity become visible to us, it is a major advantage to contact this potential client at the very beginning. It gives us the time and space to work together with the client towards a unique solution. This method also improves our chance of winning the project.”
“We started a pilot with Leaddashboards to monitor the health care opportunities around the world, mostly in Asia, Middle East and the Nordics. Together with Stephan, we created a dashboard specific for our information need. The dashboard can easily be adapted to the ever changing markets, countries and clients. It helps us to continuously find and streamline a complete overview of the developments in a specific market and to monitor upcoming opportunities in particular regions, countries and companies. These leads form useful input for our local business development activities.”

Experience with LeaddashboardsLeaddashboards is a very valuable tool which enables us to receive relevant market information and project leads on a daily basis. In combination with Google Chrome we are able to quickly screen selected articles in foreign languages that we do not manage like Polish, Russian, Rumanian, Hungarian, Arabic etc. Before the Leaddashboards “era” we were mainly targeting information on new tenders. By Leaddashboards we are able to trace information one step earlier which is of great importance for the sales organizations. Once the tender is published, all specifications are set, but if you are aware of a project that will be starting soon you can use your influence on the specs.
Leaddashboards is a powerful tool which is completely embedded in our market scanning activities now.

Experience with Leaddashboards“In all countries we work with distributors, therefore market information is crucial to monitor our business potential and rate of success. To increase the win chance in our field we need to find, educate and convince the customer before the tender is written and published.”
“In 2011 we were the first to use leaddashboards, together with Stephan we built our dashboard that we are still using today. It is a clear concept and it has changed a lot for us, it enabled us to have more grip on our local markets. We continuously identify more opportunities and often in an early stage, the collaboration with our distributors is much closer with more frequent contact about sales activities for specific projects and decisions wether to invest in a certain country are now taken easier.
On top of that, in 2012 we realised a 28% growth in export order intake and the forecast for 2013 looks promising.“
“We now have more grip than ever before on our local markets”
