CEERIS Benchmarking Studies | 18 August, 1999

CEERIS has been sending me flyers for some time, touting the value of their various studies and insights gained from digesting the facts contained within. The topics are indeed of great interest. My question is to whomever of you has purchased one or all of these reports - was it worth the money, or can the information be gained through the volumes of articles which appear in the many industry magazines we receive at no charge? I am interested in non-biased opinions only. Thanks.

If I was your boss approving your buying one of their studies, I'd like to know your purpose, how it was going to pay-back, why you couldn't get this information somewhere else, less expensively. Ta.

Dave F | All, That is my question... Please give me your opinions. Either "The CEERIS reports we purchased were a great resource in benchmarking our company to the industry and provided additional insights to where we could improve." or "The CEERIS reports we purchased provided little additional information we didn't already have or could have obtained from readily available sources. It was not worth the money spent." Like Dave F mentions, it's just one part of the ol' justification cycle. Thx, DaveJ

I'd also like to chime in here to keep the thread alive in hopes that someone is familiar with the CEERIS studies. I have seen other companies, such as Frost & Sullivan and Technology Forecasters do similar work for much less (although I don't believe T.F. is in business any longer).

Any feedback on any market research studies? Are they relevant, or fluffy at best and better to spend your money on a dartboard?

If that forecast meets you needs, good!!! If not, you may have gotten more out of attending NEPCON. My2� Dave F
