Boots on Your Competitors’ Ground

No matter your industry, your company is probably not the only player. You have competitors vying for the same market and wallet share you are, and chances are, your competitors are already monitoring your business. Shouldn't you be doing the same?

Leverage our Field Agent network to discreetly shop your competitors in order to find out how they go about shaping the customer experience and uncover your key differentiators.

  • What unique in-store experiences do your competitors offer that your company does not?
  • What wait times can your customers expect at your competitors' locations?
  • What level of service do they offer at each customer touch point?
  • Which of their service gaps can you exploit?

A Qualitative Arrow in Your Quiver

While useful in their own right, competitor analysis mystery shops are best deployed in a broader market research package. For example:

  • Paired with a Competitive Pricing Audit, a competitor monitoring mystery shopping program will give you the qualitative complement you need for quantitative pricing data
  • Folded into your own Mystery Shopping program, it will keep you apprised of how your own stores' performance compares to your competitors
  • Linked to a Competitor Market Research program, it will identify your biggest competitors and help you understand your potential differentiators before entering a new market
