Moreover, the solution significantly aids in creating presentations, deep dives, and insights on competitive topics. Its graphical features integrate nicely into PowerPoint presentations, saving time on research and spreadsheet work.
The biggest change since working withA-INSIGHTS is that I have all the information about the competitors at glance in the dashboard.

"Beyond tracking competitor developments, I use the A-INSIGHTS Solution to create detailed competitor profiles. These profiles encompass a multi-year overview of financials, strategic direction, capacities, investment activities, sustainability efforts, and product portfolios. The compiled "brochures" serve as a valuable resource within the company, offering quick overviews of relevant companies and minimizing research efforts for colleagues, especially before customer meetings."
