Conducting research into the activity of your competitors alongside notable User Experience (UX) leaders and digital innovators, the PIC review provides a clear understanding of your relative digital maturity, referencing examples of successful UX approaches across industries to outline areas of existing and potential competitive advantage.

Full of value-add analysis, insight and expertise, the resulting report tracks your performance against competitors and peers (both positive and negative), summarises learnings from those already innovating in and around your area, and sets out what a future digital transformation strategy may look like to help evolve your offer for increased success.

Why a PIC review?

A wide-ranging analysis of the digital landscape

While competitor tracking services are nothing new, the PIC review is different. This is an alternative piece of market intelligence that, due to its focus outside of just the near competition, delivers learning you wouldn’t get elsewhere.

For example, while traditional competitor research might only investigate the activity of similar businesses to yours, PIC research does this and more – looking also at comparable organisations in different geographical markets, similar but different product ranges (e.g. cars to boats) and standout innovators delivering great experiences in completely different markets (e.g. those innovating in gamification, checkout experiences, booking facilitation etc.).

By design, Box UK’s PIC review goes above and beyond simple benchmarking. This deep dive peer, innovator and competitor analysis is undertaken by one of our highly-skilled and vastly-experienced consultancy team, who leverage their many years of insight and expertise to your advantage.
