10EQS: Delivering High-Quality Insights with a Client- Focused Approach
The Asian SME consulting industry has experienced growth due to various factors such as geopolitical tensions, supply chain fragmentation, and multi-polarity. This market is now offering new opportunities to help businesses gain a better understanding of the market potential, value chain ecosystem, supply chain and operations capabilities, and the competitive landscape across Southeast Asia countries, as well as China and India.
Several drivers for this growth include a renewed focus on AI, EV infrastructure, Smart Buildings & IoT, Blockchain, Cellular Medicine & Carbon-zero, the resumption of travel & tourism in Asia, China’s economic progress, manufacturing re-shoring & on-shoring, protectionism, and volatility due to the Ukraine conflict, and a rising youthful workforce in India and Vietnam amidst rapidly aging demographics in the rest of Asia. 10EQS is a consulting firm that specializes in providing market intelligence and insights to small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) in all sectors and verticals. The company has positioned itself as a unique provider of valuable market insights that allow clients to rapidly increase their knowledge in a short period and at a reasonable cost.
Delivering Value to Clients
10EQS offers its flagship ‘advise’ solutions to support SMEs with their corporate strategy and go-to-market initiatives by providing unique synthesized insights from industry experts and secondary market research along with actionable recommendations from its experienced project consultants. The most significant challenge for SME clients is the lack of up-to-date insights and market intelligence on regions and sectors where they are not represented.This limitation hinders their ability to forecast expected demand for their products/services, to understand their (prospective) customers, competitors, and new market entrants, as well as plan for future growth and potential disruption with reasonable confidence.
In order to maintain a superior standard of delivered insights, 10EQS follows three standard practices in its operational model. “Firstly, all consultants and industry experts undergo thorough vetting and screening procedures to ensure adequate qualification before engaging them.
Secondly, the company assigns experienced, project-proven, and service-centric consultants with the relevant domain expertise to lead all client engagements. Lastly, each project is supported by an experienced PMO team to ensure a consistent focus on client needs, priorities, outcomes, and timelines”, briefs Conrad Yeo, Director of Business & Project Operations & APJ Lead.
Client Engagement Process
The client engagement process at 10EQS encompasses a full cycle, starting from comprehending the specific client requirements to delivering the services required by the client. The process commences with a scoping call with the client to understand their key queries, pain points, knowledge gaps, and priorities. A proposal document is then formulated that outlines the client’s objectives, project scope, delivery work method, the experience of the company’s project team members, timelines, and commercial terms. Upon receiving the official authorization from the client, a formal kick-off with the project delivery team is initiated. Weekly review calls are held with the client to discuss progress, findings, changes in direction, or new questions or priorities that may have emerged.
10EQS will then develop a comprehensive insights report over the course of the project, which will be reviewed and presented to the client. 10EQS boasts a diverse team of senior executives and industry professionals with decades of experience in consulting and corporate strategy. The company also has a team of dynamic, resourceful, and content-savvy delivery staff with an unwavering focus on customer service, delivery quality, collaboration and teamwork. In addition, 10EQS has a network of consultants with extensive experience from large top-tier consulting firms, as well as industry experts from diverse backgrounds. This powerful combination ensures that insights are consistently delivered at high quality while operating within a fast, cost-efficient framework. This has been key to the company’s success and growth over the years.
