The focus at ATechs is to provide the best service available to clients in need of technology experts. We do this by placing a high emphasis on measurable goals such as compliance, depth of coverage, uniqueness of experts, match quality, and speed of matching.
Clients communicate with experts through confidential telephone or Oovoo video consultations. ATechs allows clients to search through a group of selected Experts and choose their consultation partner. The parties then arrange an agreeable time for their call. After each call, ATechs client managers follow up with Clients and Experts regarding the consultation.
Many of our experts have been recruited specifically for technology assessment and innovation screening. We provide our clients access to an elite group that includes inventors, researchers, academia, and technology transfer specialists. Experts provide clients with valuable primary research during the client's due diligence and product development process. Some of the most commonly explored issues are:
- Potential commercial applications of new technologies
- Market size/strength or opportunities
- Uniqueness of technology
- Ease of entry to market
- Analysis and perspective of the current competitive landscape
ATechs' quantitative surveys are one of our most popular services for clients seeking answers from a concentrated group of industry specialists. We take out the heavy lifting to provide in-depth results that meet the needs of our clients. Our staff works closely with clients to understand the objectives and screen relevant experts. Each survey is unique and customizable. A survey is a great alternative to 1-on-1 consultations when a client may be interested to poll an industry subset. For instance, Healthcare clients might use a survey of a group physicians regarding a drug they prescribe to patients. Financial clients can use a survey to assess the reception of a new product that may affect a company's earnings.
For clients seeking a face to face meeting, ATechs will arrange office visits or tour by a member of the expert network. Experts are compensated at a higher rate for in-person meetings with the clients.
