Surveys of regional business landscapes

We ask the right questions. That’s why we can provide the right answers. Our comprehensive economic expertise is combined with many years of empirical know-how. We can offer you our expertise in the form of in-house panels, or create customized business surveys tailored precisely to your concerns.

We routinely collect shareholder and stakeholder opinions, positions, and attitudes, and use this information to draw the relevant conclusions for the groups most affected by them: associations and interest groups, individual sectors, mayors or politicians, businesses, sectors and even the entire German economy.

In the case of our individual company, employee and association surveys, we use custom-tailored studies to give our clients answers to their specific questions, flexibly and swiftly.


"We answer your questions with solid data - of course DSGVO compliant."

Digital review for foundations and associations

Foundations and associations also have an interest in learning more about the digital maturity of their members. How large is the gap between individual members? What’s going well, and what’s not going so well? How can one learn from one another and benefit accordingly? To answer these questions, we audit the digital maturity of various businesses, identify optimization potential and provide recommendations for action.

A digital review does not have to be a time-consuming task. Our digital Quick Check gives you a quick and reliable overview of where your members are at in terms of digital transformation.

Of potential interest here are one of our surveys polling a variety of companies on how business-friendly local governments are – that is, the extent to which local policymakers influence the economy and take economic issues seriously.
