Whole addressable market at your fingertips

  • Challenge, Sales and Marketing in the research world:

    Experimental research is done using very expensive instruments ranging from $200K to $2M. Selling these devices is very inefficient and costly as their applications are very niche and their customers are scattered around the world. They have to physically attend many trade shows and scientific conferences.

  • Solution: We map out their whole addressable market in a central platform, with all their potential customers in it.

    We can do this automatically and efficiently by applying state-of-the-art AI to mine the publications of all scientists.

    Customers can use the Scitodate Market Landscape to see everyone in their addressable market, what they are working on and if they are using competitor products.
