Challenge

“Investment Firm” needs to perform effective online research to make the most effective investment decisions in a variety of different markets. Before the firm invests in any brand or company, analysts want to know the answers to many different questions like: 

  • How is the brand perceived? 
  • Do customers like the product? 
  • Are mentions increasing or decreasing over time?
  • How much do people talk about this product compared to the competitor’s? 
  • Is the brand equally appealing to young populations? 
  • What are the key risk factors?

 

Solution

To help inform investment decisions, Investment Firm analysts use Netvibes to assess a corporate brand’s pre-product-launch buzz, to understand market expectations, to assess whether customers are ready to switch to the new product, and to analyze how the brand compares with competitors. Netvibes Dashboards enables the firm to analyze both internal and external data, comparing all relevant information in one place to understand how market forces impact business metrics. 
 
For example, Investment Firm wanted to analyze the investment opportunity presented by “California Startup” (name changed). The startup’s first product, a smart-home gadget, had previously been recalled due to bugs and poor performance--a result of rushing to market too fast. On social media, California Startup’s brand perception was in free-fall, and the company appeared at first glance to be a poor investment. To evaluate the risk, Investment Firm wanted to track how consumer perceptions of the startup would be impacted by the upcoming launch of its new product. Using Netvibes, analysts discovered that the new product launch significantly improved customer trust in California Startup, offering good news for future investment outlook. At the same time, market intelligence revealed that smart-home gadgets were one of the fastest-growing areas in consumer technology.  As a result, the firm invested in the California Startup funding round, ultimately resulting in a profitable return. 
 
Data-driven insights help Investment Firm analysts prepare feedback reports, providing the necessary intelligence for Portfolio Investment Managers to make sound investment decisions every time, across rapidly changing markets. Netvibes Dashboards automatically create periodic feedback reports for stakeholders, analyzing investment performance.
