Market Substantiation & Monitoring
PDS provides access to local markets, local trends, and local opportunities. After establishing your products, services, and areas of interest, PDS monitors these local areas for information and opportunities important to you.
Qualification & Development
Market knowledge and identifying opportunities are only the first steps. Many factors affect the quality of any opportunity, and often these are not known outside the immediate region. PDS’s network evaluates these opportunities and provides guidance on which are worth pursuing, and which are better left for the competition to spin their wheels.
Evaluation & Report
PDS provides specific reports on each qualified opportunity so that you may evaluate it for yourself and decide on the appropriate action.

valuable resource. Reactive intelligence is information you didn’t know you needed. Proactive intelligence is answers to your questions. And both are best gathered and evaluated by local
Market intelligence needs contacts - networks of informed local resources whose interests are aligned with yours, so you get what you need - accurately, completely, and timely. And resources knowledgeable in the local environment so you get useful analysis and qualification, not just RFP’s or news clippings.
PDS focuses on emerging and established markets where we have years, even decades, of experience
