CONCERNS

 

It is not going to work for me
Totally understandable, for this reason, we are offering an onboard call and a matching-guarantee for the first month: to be sure you will be satisfied with the final results. We are not here just to sell a product, we have the mission to promote and diffuse innovation. If this would not work for you, we want to understand what we are missing to improve our solution and make it great also for you.
But if you are still not convinced, You can try it also for free.....why do not give it a try? It is easy and fast to set up, only 5 minutes and you will be advised when your search is ready. If you need help, just contact us and we can run the searches for you.
 
I don’t need it
That’s a common objection because each company has already found its own strategy to find technologies. But on average companies are spending 10k dollars per month for finding novel technologies, and needed 3 months to identify possible solutions. If you are in the same situation, give us a try and you will not regret it.
 
It is too expensive
We totally understand you have to associate your investment with a direct return. For this reason, we offer different plans affordable to everyone. Moreover, you can test the service for free and decide to buy just a single search for a really small amount of money in comparison to the results you can get.
 
I have no time to test it
That’s exactly the key point to using our tool. Finding innovative solutions is one of the most time-consuming activities with an extremely low percentage of success. With the Technology Search Engine, you can set up a search in 5 minutes and save months of work. Time will not be an issue anymore.
 
I don’t trust you
We agree with you that trust needs to be built with time and results. For this reason, we are offering different ways to evaluate our service: Check the DEMO searches on our webpage, to find the most interesting solutions related to the emerging technologies of the year; Test our solution using our free version; Rely on the onboard call and the Matching-guarantee: if in the first 30 days, you cannot find solutions that match your needs, we support you in all the searches without a match to find the wanted technology. If we cannot satisfy your search, you will be fully refunded.

Where did you get the idea to offer this solution?
We have a decade of experience in design innovation sustaining companies & startups. Our daily work made us clearly understanding the technology scouting process was not efficient and effective at all. So we decided to interview Chief Innovation Officers, VPs of Innovations, and Head of Innovation of multinational companies, to identify possible solutions. You can see our findings in the Mastering Technology Scouting Report we crafted. Based on that, we designed the Technology Search engine.
 
What about if the company or the colleagues are skeptical about this?
Totally understandable. Do not force them to use it, but start using it by yourself. Once you are providing better outcomes quicker, they will ask you how possible it is, and that’s will be the time to show the magic.
 
Does this work for any type of market?
Yes, it does. The approach works properly in any market. In the most complex you need only to dig deeper into the needs in order to better identify them before starting looking for solutions, but this approach works and provides much better results than the current one used.
 
Does this work for any company size?
Sure. This approach is independent of company size, it works for large enterprises, small businesses, and even freelancers. In large companies, you probably have to use it by yourself first in order to prove to others it works, before convincing them, but they will be interested in it for sure once you provide better outcomes.
 
Does this work for any type of technology?
Yes of course. You are looking for solutions and solutions are everywhere. This is an approach that will just change the way you are looking for them. Can be applied to any type of technology, but also any solutions search.
 
What should I do to start? 
Try to understand business requirements in deep and ask questions about the reason behind them. Most of the time, the first mistake in finding the right technology, is inside the initial request. Then, remember that innovative solutions can arrive from everywhere, a large company as a single innovator, from a large country or a small unknown town, from your competitor like a company in a totally different sector. Do not set limits, limits are the first enemy of innovations, look everywhere and be focused on the NEED, not the technology.
 
What should I do to fight the mindset?
Don’t do that. Fighting the mindset is a game lost. You have to satisfy the mindset, giving what it really needs. Find what is the reason behind a specific requirement and satisfy that.
 
How should I convince other people or departments to use this approach?
Don't do that! As written, mindset is difficult to change. You have to prove to them it works. Start using it by yourself, and show the results you can provide. Once you provide better outcomes quicker, they will ask you how you achieved them.
