Business Development

The power of relationships

There are thousands of good products and services in the market place, and just as many small to medium businesses trying to take their slice of that market. But how to go about it, in the most cost-effective way, when time and money is at a premium?

We are constantly surprised and amazed at the money spent trying to get products to market, when a simple analysis often reveals that this investment is misplaced. Worse, expectations of how successful these strategies will be are often completely out of whack.

At Acuity, we understand how to develop a market, create effective distribution, and attain the elusive goals of business development; the pre-sold referral and sole-sourced supplier status. 

Now, isn't that worth investing in?
