Make wise business decisions in the face of uncertainty

COVID-19 will disrupt your business, your industry, the economy and the health sector.  Your 2020/21 business plans are no longer valid.

Before your business can grow, it needs to recalibrate its plans based upon different assumptions and servicing rapidly changing customer needs.  Your industry’s competitive landscape could radically restructure based upon how your industry peers react to this crisis.  Regulators may very well change how business is conducted for your company.

In a such an uncertain environment, market intelligence and smart strategic planning are more valued than ever.

Re-Calibrating 2020/21 Business Plans

Most strategic, business and sales plans composed before the COVID-19 crisis hit are no longer of much value to companies. Companies must quickly reformulate their plans and do so while their key people are, at best stranded in different countries, or worse, in their own homes. AMI can help by reaching out to our market contacts and leveraging the knowledge of your staff to gather missing intel on changes to customer behavior, competitor plans, and pending regulations.  Then we can organize and moderate a half to full-day (even longer if necessary) online planning exercise with your senior staff.  Our industry experience and growing understanding of the economic fall-out of this crisis will lend invaluable objectivity to help unite your far-flung regional managers behind an achievable plan that keeps your operations moving forward and your team motivated.

AMI-Organized Webinar for Your Clients and Partners

We’ve been doing it for years but now our clients need it more than ever.

LATAM E-Commerce Report 2019-2023

E-commerce may prove to be the most heavily disrupted industry by the COVID-19. In 2002, when SARS erupted in China, consumers stayed home and ordered on-line for the first time. That helped catapult Alibaba and other e-commerce players into global dimensions. Latin Americans may have stopped buying plane tickets online but hundreds of thousands are testing home-delivery of groceries and other staples for the first time, as they adapt to new social distancing rules that are closing stores and restaurants. AMI’s e-commerce forecasts are the first to incorporate the impact of the Coronavirus on customer purchasing behavior and the economic disruption underway in 2020.

COVID Consumer Snapshot Studies

Coronavirus has impacted Latin America powerfully — and changed just about everything. Companies need to stay on top of rapidly changing consumer attitudes and market conditions. That’s why we developed innovative methodologies to produce studies quickly, allowing companies to react faster than ever before based on up-to-the-minute results.

COVID Cost-Cutting Strategies

But they may not have to shrink their companies with morale-killing approaches like reducing headcount or slashing salaries. Discover how our market intelligence can help you reduce costs and grow your company at the same time.
