(PRWEB) October 07, 2011
2011-10-04 – Global Intelligence Alliance (GIA) announces two new Finnish clients for its Intelligence Desk® service, a customized market monitoring solution that boosts awareness and sharing of insights in organizations.
The new Intelligence Desk clients are Finnair, the country’s flag carrier and largest airline of Finland, and Oriola-KD, a leading pharmaceutical distributor with operations in Finland, Sweden, Russia, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia. These appointments have come in very timely, as market uncertainties brought about by the U.S. credit downgrade and troubles in EU’s euro zone will hasten the adoption of more customized market monitoring services.
GIA will provide to Finnair’s Customer Service daily news monitoring as well as quarterly market reviews on an online platform for sharing documents, news and collecting internal intelligence. For Oriola-KD, GIA will provide handpicked news from English, Finnish, Swedish and Russian sources on a fully customized online platform.
”GIA’s Intelligence Desk provides Finnair a good platform for monitoring competitor and market information. The service delivers us up-to-date knowledge faster and with less effort than before. Organizing and analyzing intelligence to compile reports for decision making situations has become easier. Our cooperation with GIA has been fruitful”, says Anna Castello, Manager Customer Research from Finnair.
“With selected daily news alerts we can offer our personnel a timely and easy way to maintain comprehensive visibility to market developments and our company’s media exposure. The service has freed our resources from media monitoring to other tasks. The portal itself offers an in-depth overview of the market and competitive environment to a targeted group”, says Pellervo Hämäläinen, Director of Communications and Investor Relations from Oriola-KD.
