Company | Note
Companies rarely produce and deliver contents based on careful research and studies. Company | Note is a network of experts and professionals active in different industries, born to support companies in researching, producing and delivering contents and information.
Contents and relevant information could be hidden into a balance sheet of a certain company, or could be freely available online; information could be in the database of few specialists, in the archive of a private investor or an embassy, on the ground in a foreign market, in a consulting firm report, or even in a physical library. Company | Note supports companies in finding information from all of these sources.
What is the shape of contents and information? It could be a business plan to invest or sell in a new market, a legal team’s classified dossier, an open article on a newspaper, a company website to communicate to clients, or a business report addressed to the CEO. Company | Note supports companies in the production of information, no matter the shape.
Which is the value of information without delivery? Information can create value when it is properly disseminated among target employees or to the top management; when it is sold as a service and distributed to customers or to suppliers via newsletter; when it is published on newspapers or digital media. Company | Note supports companies in delivering information and contents in all these form, to the right target.
