Moreover, GBRS offers you the added flexibility of modifying team composition and scope of work on a regular basis.

Tomorrow you can add two more researchers and have the entire team study market development trends in Japan & Korea. Do all these without having to worry about administrative issues & overhead costs - GBRS will handle all of these for you. We build your team. You call the shots.
With GBRS covering the minor issues at the periphery of your business, market or industry, you are allowed to focus on the key concerns and major activities that have an immediate impact on your business. We observe the weak signals and subtle moves of competitors, slight shifts in customer demand & preferences, or gradual changes in industry dynamics. Working together, we achieve what many other firms aspire but rarely get - a comprehensive business knowledge acquisition system.
A well-integrated research outsourcing strategy that leverages GBRS' remote knowledge collection, analysis and reporting management service allows you to orchestrate your research efforts, resources, priorities and systems well. You maintain control of the entire process and keep mission-critical activities and high- level analysis in-house while utilizing GBRS resources & networks to provide all the needed knowledge support to keep your company on the competitive edge.
The key competencies of every company should be identified, developed and enhanced so that it can compete effectively and allow greater customer satisfaction and superior performance. Let GBRS manage all your back-office research operations so that you can freely devote more time and resources to client relationship and business development or other revenue- generating activities.
In response to demand shifts, outsourcing your research process changes how business is done quickly. With GBRS taking care of resource allocation and management, you can increase or decrease project capacity to match demand volume changes. Our core competency, research production, allows us to stay on the cutting edge and adapt to change faster, the advantages of which we pass on to you. Now, you do not only get a back- office support unit that is functioning well but also more room for the creation of innovative solutions for your clients.
Within the research value chain, a poorly functioning unit can affect the overall quality the final output. For instance, a poorly executed data collection function may be caused by an under- trained or inexperienced staff, foreign language restrictions, few available interviewers with tight deadlines, complex collection methodology, sophisticated research topics or limited information. It has grave effects on the analysis, recommendation and final reporting phases. Its consequences include problems regarding customer satisfaction, invoicing, workforce planning and eventually firm reputation.
Let GBRS manage your research collection requirements across global markets. This allows you to isolate the problem area and improve its performance while operating below original cost levels.
The process and cost of recruiting, hiring, maintaining and disposing of a research support team (composed of interviewers, data analysts, encoders, etc.) could be impossible to plan and even incur additional costs because demand for research work fluctuates unpredictably. Passing on this function to GBRS minimizes your project risk as we assume the responsibility of managing staff issues regardless of project size, scope or duration. And because of our keen focus on the research process, we can also manage the error risk well.
During periods of rapid growth in the market, it is critical to maintain market share or keep ahead of the competition. It is a given that companies that cannot access the needed funding or new capital to expand or introduce latest service introductions will be left far behind. Eventually they lose shares, revenues and profits to competitors.
GBRS allows you to transfer the responsibility for research capacity expansion and service development. We can meet your expansion requirements at very competitive rates - -- the benefits of which we return to you to enhance your business performance. You can gain access to our capacity, processes and systems when you need them. Right away, you accelerate expansion requirements, keep pace with the market and maintain customer satisfaction.
