Q: When can I expect to receive the research?

A: One of the things that sets Corporate Navigators apart from our competitors is our ability to start your project right away. We guarantee that you will have an installment of research within two business days of your research request.

Q: How do you generate the research?

We are capable of obtaining this information on a “veiled” basis so that our client’s confidentiality is never compromised. In addition, we utilize a variety of online resources that help us execute projects with thoroughness and efficiency.

Q: How do you differ from a sourcing firm?

A: Most sourcing organizations spend most or all of their time researching online.  While we certainly utilize the internet, online databases, and social media resources such as LinkedIn, the majority of our time is spent calling into the companies we are exploring. This allows us to provide real-time and accurate information beyond what a sourcing firm might locate on an out-of-date website.

Additionally, we are able to include details such as direct dials, email addresses, reporting relationships, scopes of responsibility, and much more. This type of information usually cannot be gathered through typical sourcing efforts.

Q: How do you bill for your services?

A: We have a flat hourly rate for all of our services.  In all cases, our telephone expenses are included in this hourly rate (with the exception of international projects). We bill upon completion of the research project. Contact us now for more information on our rates.

Q: Do you require a minimum amount of hours on a project?

A: No. We understand that our clients have urgent research needs both large and small. We do our best to assist on every project – regardless of size.

Q: I’ve had negative experiences with outside research firms in the past, why should I consider using Corporate Navigators?

A: There are many aspects of Corporate Navigators that set us apart from our competitors. Here are some examples:
