Smart Business Strategies: The Value of Business-Related Investigations
What is the best way to compete in the modern market? The simple answer is that you need information, because no matter how good your product or service may be, there is always somebody who could undercut you in some way.
Being prepared is your ultimate shield, and a professional personal investigator makes an excellent shield-bearer.
You may assume that private investigation services are all about ‘digging up dirt’ and spying on people, but the reality is so much more complex.
For instance, the following business-related investigations are just some aspects of the services that professionals like Be the chance offer businesses today:
Competitive Intelligence Reports
Do you know who your competitors really are and what sets them apart from your business? What are their strengths, weaknesses and plans?
The reality is that most businesses think they know how to answer these questions, but they really don’t have a very clear picture at all.
Competitive intelligence investigations will provide you with a comprehensive report including details pertaining to who your real competitors are, as well as information you need to be able to counter and surpass them.
For instance, if you are in the computer sales business you may not realise that you are actually competing with cellular phone stores for the sale of certain products.
With the help of private detective services dedicated to business intelligence, you will be armed with a report detailing exactly where your major threats lie.
While your competitors are an obvious threat to your business, internal threats are far more difficult to anticipate or track (in most cases).
Even if you suspect something, how can you prove it? You could make use of polygraph services. Polygraphs have proven instrumental in many investigations, even if the cases end in settlements before getting to trials and prosecution.
Often that quick, subtle end is the best option for the reputations of all those involved, including your business.
Even more subtle, though, is the use of undercover personal investigators. These individuals meet with you to go over your suspicions, the procedure for the investigation, and any other key information.
From there they will take up the necessary position within your business, hiding in plain sight and gleaning information from within the company, discreetly.
Once they have acquired the information and proof you need, you can decide on your next course of action.
Employee Background Screening
One of your most valuable – and costly – assets is your employees. You want to hire the best people, with the highest skill levels and presenting the fewest liabilities.
However, sometimes you don’t know everything about the people you end up hiring, and this has led to some major problems for some companies.
Among the most valuable private detective services in this regard is employee background screening, more commonly known as background checks.
By having true professionals do this for your business you can rest easy knowing that if there is anything unclear or false in an employee/applicant’s resume, you’ll find out before it’s too late.
