When taking steps to acquire a business or trying to reduce the risk of fraud, having access to company intelligence and being able to analyse and interpret it is critical. This is especially true when you need to engage in effective decision-making within today’s competitive and constantly changing market. Blackhawk’s team of corporate intelligence specialists have a range of skills that will allow you to identify key data, and ultimately make informed, intelligent and accurate business decisions.
What can Blackhawk’s corporate intelligence services do for you?
There are four main aspects of our corporate intelligence service that can be utilised to give you more control over your business decisions.
Our corporate risk management tools work to make your business more secure and safe from prospective market risks. To do so, we investigate other companies who operate in a similar market to your own business, thereby enabling you to better understand your competition. As well as this, our risk investigations can be employed to assess any potential companies that you may wish to merge with or acquire. In this case, by knowing the financial health of these companies, you can make an informed decision regarding whether or not a merger or acquisition deal is the right move for you.
Blackhawk can also improve the overall security of your business, particularly when arming yourself against digital threats. Rates of fraud and cyber-crime are rapidly increasing year to year, and businesses should aware of where their weaknesses lie and how best to protect themselves. We can assess the security of your company, identify potential security issues and create an achievable strategy that you can implement to keep your business safe.
Our specialist research team can identify and investigate the online presence of a business you may wish to engage with, for example in the capacity of supplier or customer. This is useful if you need to figure out the trustworthiness of their website and the products or services they are offering. By extension, this also works to prove the reliability of the business itself. When it comes to engaging in business transactions with other companies, being aware of their online presence is a key step to safeguarding your business against their untrustworthy business practices. Our experience with online research means that we can access data – hidden, deleted or otherwise – and analyse it efficiently to give you clear insight into another business. This ultimately saves you time and resources since you don’t have to find and examine this data yourself, and it also goes some way to help you reduce the risk of fraud.
Conducting due diligence before making any new business decision is essential, especially if you want to minimise any risks to your own company. Blackhawk’s extensive due diligence service can provide you with the tools you need to decide if a company is worth doing business with.
We can also examine your business transactions to ensure that they have been carried out sufficiently, thereby reducing the risk of fraud. Fraud can have a crippling effect on your business, so it’s important to be aware of how it can occur and how you can prevent it. Blackhawk’s expertise also extends to dealing with the aftermath of fraud, and we can sufficiently advise you if necessary.
Armed with an accurate understanding of your business data, how it is managed and how it can be applied, will allow your company to quickly respond to change in the ever-fluctuating market place. It’s also somewhat of a self-fulfilling prophecy, as the better your insight and understanding of your business and its environment, the more it will enable you to improve the effectiveness of your corporate intelligence infrastructure.
Deep-level Due Diligence
Major decisions involving significant business moves, large-scale acquisitions, new partnerships, and expanding operations to foreign countries, they all inevitably involve trade-offs between risks and benefits. At Blackhawk Intelligence, our deep-level due diligence team supports clients with risk management and helping them to minimise business risks by providing comprehensive assessments of business targets.
Deep-level due diligence is a distinct tool vital to financial and legal due diligence. The process of deep-level due diligence will see our specialist team delving deeper into the people behind the target company, their motives, interests, past behaviour in other roles, and any other helpful information. Aiming to help our clients understand the situations better and mitigate risks, our team uses a unique methodology and produces a broad and detailed overview of the designated target, taking into account a multitude of financial, marketing, legal and technical aspects.
Corporate intelligence means being forearmed
During the natural course of trade, your company may engage in a variety of business transactions, including those with your supply chain, distributor or partner, sales and marketing, and operations. Being forewarned is being forearmed, and entering initial discussions or reviewing existing relationships with an accurate understanding of the elements critical to your position will significantly enhance a successful outcome.
