"You have a product launch coming ahead. You cannot allow any mistake"
Market Reach is a market capture prioritization tool for the preparatory and the operational phases of a product launch in either a B2B or a B2C environment. It allows your sales and marketing team to get a 360 view of the market potential, identify specific niches and put a launch plan in battle order. It specifically uses algorithmic prioritization technologies and the product launch experience of Horizon Development Markets staff.
"Unlocking your export potential out of your comfort zone"
A favorite of small and medium-sized companies that have a solid base in their home markets or in nearby markets and that would like to explore opportunities to start to sale in other countries without having to commit to hire and train new resources in-house.
" Because adjustments after the wrong IT deployment are simply very expensive, both in money and in reputation "
Tech Pass is a program specifically designed for the IT industry. It provides sample user market test of newly developed technologies that need a go-ahead before they leave the prototyping mode. The objective with TechPass is to bridge product development with market realities before product launch; allowing for cost-saving measures, product modifications and sales channels adjustments before the company commits with full sales and marketing resources. This step is often seen very favorably for tech companies seeking initial investments as a safeguard for initial investors: Getting first sales, first implementations and happy customer references for further business development and further financing.
At a time of great disruptions in the travel & hospitality market, Horizon Development Markets has developed a range of very rigorous products that were designed specifically to assist decision-making in the travel and hospitality industry, with a strong experience and focus on Nordic countries. MarketTour™ is the cumulating result of the combination of expertise between Horizon Development's Baltic Ambassador programme and Horizon Development Markets, with a focus on dynamic market research and the most recent communication and social media tools.
