)-- Attaain Inc. today announced a new program enabling business incubators and business accelerators to provide their member companies affordable access to the powerful AttaainCI (tm) competitive intelligence and market intelligence software-as-a-service.
AttaainCI is a leading web-based solution for competitive intelligence and market intelligence research and tracking. The AttaainCI software/service provides powerful tools for researching, analyzing and real-time tracking of competitive intelligence and market intelligence about companies, people and markets crucial to the success of a business. The system tracks the latest intelligence on key competitors, sales prospects, customers, potential partners, target markets, industry people and more, across single or multiple lines of business. In addition, it provides powerful web marketing analytics to improve the effectiveness of clients’ web marketing strategies.
Daryl Scott, President and CEO of Attaain, states, “Business incubator and accelerator companies are a perfect fit in terms of need for the kind of information that AttaainCI provides, yet would not normally be in a position to be able to afford having the benefit of such a service. The new AttaainCI Incubator/Accelerator program solves this problem and is a great value-added offering that incubators/accelerators can provide to assist their members in competing more effectively in their targeted markets. We believe that business incubators/accelerators play an important role in the formation, mentoring and success of innovative new companies. The new AttaainCI Incubator/Accelerator program is a great way for Attaain to support the growth of such promising young companies.”
According to Jim Flowers, Director of VT KnowledgeWorks, a leading university-based business incubator/accelerator that is now offering the AttaainCI system to its members, “We are always seeking innovative new services that we can make available for the benefit of our member companies, and are very pleased to be able to offer this new ‘Market Intelligence Package’ option to our VT KnowledgeWorks members. We have dozens of member companies who do business in fast-moving competitive markets, and this new program will provide them with an additional strategic advantage in successfully growing their businesses.”
