Top Consulting Firms Are Upping Their Game
“Time is money,” said Lynn Epstein, InfoDesk COO, “today’s consultants simply don’t have time to waste searching the Web, noodling with social media, or poring over streams of unfiltered content full of meaningless press releases, advertorials and opinions.”
According to Epstein, “Consultants have changed they way they consume information.” To be successful, business consultants need to be highly informed about industries and sectors they serve. This includes having ready access to massive volumes of information, research, data and competitive intelligence.
“This is what we like to call ‘actionable intelligence,’” she said.
Actionable intelligence, according to Epstein, is carefully curated summaries of, and access to, only the most relevant business news and information from the most credible sources.
In fact, InfoDesk provides actionable intelligence to a number of the world’s largest management consulting firms. Whether they are looking for full-service curated newsletters or tools to help them manage, curate and distribute their internal content, InfoDesk solutions can be tailored to meet each client’s needs and budget.
“Our clients don’t want more information—in fact, they want less information, but it has to be the right information,” said Epstein. That means providing real insight about all types of competitive intelligence, including news, research, social media and more.
