Custom Research

In addition to our ongoing, foundational reports, Gardner Intelligence offers forecasting, consulting, benchmarking, modeling and custom research.

Custom Research

Gardner Intelligence can collaborate directly with you to develop programs that reveal insights on technology, business practices/operations, advertising, and competition.

Questions we address include...

What are the gaps and developing trends that call for existing and/or new technology?

What are the short and long term business expectations and why?

What ‘works’ and doesn’t as far as marketing and advertising?

What are the perceptions of your company vs. competition*?
*blinded as appropriate

Gardner Intelligence will structure custom research that fully meets your needs, including timing and budget.

Custom Modeling

In 2016, Gardner Intelligence leveraged new analytics, forecasting and survey analysis tools – including statistical software and data from Moody’s Analytics - to build a model that proved 96% accurate in predicting the last 6 months of U.S. machine tool orders. Using these capabilities, Gardner can inform clients about the significant economic and survey metrics critical to your business performance.
