YOUR RESEARCH TEAM APPLIED THE FOLLOWING STRATEGY

We began our research by scouring through the company websites of Brainshark, Seismic, and Guru to provide an overview, revenue, market capitalization, points of differentiation, services offered and pricing of the companies. We found interesting data related to the topic, however, we were unable to provide information on the pricing of Brainshark and Seismic and the market capitalization for the three companies.

We continued our search by looking through company databases such as Crunchbase, Pitchbook, and Hoovers among others to determine the revenue for Brainshark, Seismic and Guru. We also scoured through these databases for information about the market capitalization of these three companies and we discovered that they are all private companies.

To determine the pricing details of these companies we searched through credible news, articles, reports, and review sites such as PRNewswire, G2, and Fitsmallbusiness among others. However, we were unable to determine the pricing details for Brainshark and Seismic and we assumed that this is so because most companies do not release their pricing details and they require clients to contact them for information about their pricing.

YOUR RESEARCH TEAM APPLIED THE FOLLOWING STRATEGY

To answer this request, we first searched through the websites of the listed companies to find out about their revenue, market capitalization, point of differentiation, services offered, overview, and product/service pricing. Our search yielded a positive result as we identified all requirements except the company pricing details concerning growth/new client acquisition strategy.

First, we looked into the various company website and product/service offerings in search of the pricing details of the various services and products offered by the company in general and new client acquisition strategy in particular. This strategy proved futile as we did not find such listings. We were unable to look at the companies' annual report of form 10K as all three companies are privately held.

Next, we looked into the profile of the various business directory sources such as Crunchbase, Hoovers, and Zoominfo for information on the pricing structure of the various products offered by these companies. Most of these sources only reported revenue details about the companies but had no information about their new client acquisition strategy pricing or any other product pricing. We also searched through trusted media sources, reports, articles, and news details about the various companies but still found no pricing information available in the public domain.

Lastly, we resorted to third party sources such as review sites, customer case studies, and user experience sites from different sources in an attempt to find any of the pricing details as mention by a client or consumer but found none. We further looked at reviews in the company' social media sources for the same information and still found no such information.

KANVIC

OGARACO

Research Strategy:

We were unable to find the pricing information for Kanvic and OGaraCo. To find this data, we first looked into each company’s website in search of the pricing details of their services offered. However, these sites did contain such information. They only provided insights about their services and a link to contact them to request more information.
Next, we looked into each company’s overview in third party sites, such as Crunchbase, or Zoominfo for information on their pricing structure. Most of these sources only provided revenue details or number of employees about the companies. We also searched through reports, articles, and news for details about the various companies. All these sources did not provide pricing information regarding both companies.
Finally, we searched through review sites, user experience sites, as well as each company’s social media sites to find any comments made by users regarding the pricing details. However, none of these sources provided this information. Most comments were based on user experiences.
We think these prices are not publicly available, as these companies are privately held and are under no obligation of providing this information.
