Here

Counterpoint’s strengths are their clear and far-sighted insights into the developing market for connected devices and ecosystems. They actively ensure they maintain a detailed understanding of HERE’s capability and strategy. This combination means their insights offer real value to our business and are widely appreciated across our business.

Team Europe

For us as new-business developers and company-builders a thorough assessment of the market-size and its drivers is always the final factor in a go-/no-go-decision, and Counterpoint’s insights into the mobile and smartphone industry have been extremely helpful for setting up our operations in Korea. When we were stuck with merely understanding the data and growth-rates in our customer-segments, Counterpoint’s qualitative assessments and recommendations on smartphone users have been tremendously helpful. We were better able to understand the customers who were using similar legacy-models and who were most likely to switch over to our new offerings

Samsung

The data and analysis provided by Counterpoint is unparallaled in terms of granularity and preciseness. We did not hesitate to choose Counterpoint after the initial briefings. The client support is also excellent, very approachable.
