Optimizing Existing Foreign Operations
Companies that have expanded into the United States want to understand how well their foreign operations are doing relative to market opportunities. It is often difficult to do from abroad because information may be filtered. It requires an understanding of the US market, business methodologies, optimal channels of distribution, brand strategies, customers, taxation and product differentiation: sometimes not well understood by the the company’s US based managers. Group50 provides foreign companies with a view of their performance in the US and offers recommendations on how to optimize that performance and realize untapped market potential.
