Peers, Innovators, Competitors Review

A distinctive approach to competitor research, the Peers, Innovators, Competitors (PIC) review is a comprehensive yet concise way of understanding and improving your standing in the marketplace.

Reviewing the activity of your competitors alongside notable 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 insight and expertise, the resulting report details the gaps between your organisation and its competitors/peers (both positive and negative), summarises learnings from those already innovating in and around your area, and sets out how you might evolve your own offer for increased success.

Why a PIC review?

While competitor reviews 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 research might only investigate the activity of your nearest competitors, 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.).
