Shaping cross-border business

Why locationperspectives

Deciding on location is a one-of challenge for most companies

A decision with far-ranging and costly implications

It cannot easily be reversed

Working with in-house resources to address location issues has the benefit of their understanding corporate DNA and deep technical knowledge about the product and services

But will they:

  • Have insight on the broad array of location options and feasibility of “What works where”?

  • Have the field experience, methodology and tools to cast a robust location decision?

  • Focus on top-of-mind locations only to be confronted with saturation effects?

  • Be able to take an objective stance?
