BRE News Research Services (brebuzz)

Proactive Research on Existing Industries

The global economy changes quickly, with the proliferation of information and more rapid decision-making by business executives about jobs and facilities. During times such as these, the risk to local municipalities of their local employers downsizing, relocating, or being recruited elsewhere goes up, and to remain strong, you need to seek out alternatives to keep ahead of the game.

Therefore, economic development agencies need solid research methods to gather intelligence on local businesses.
The CSS Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) News Research program is a business intelligence strategy that provides you with information on your local employers without your having to call and meet with them. While having a business call program is vital, it’s just as important to have business research methods to gather information on your local companies, proactive research methods that don’t require any of your valuable time.

The CSS brebuzz program provides you with bi-weekly intelligence on specific businesses for such items as:

  • Leadership turnover
  • Company layoffs (locally or elsewhere)
  • Business acquisitions
  • Facility investments and closures
  • New product development for key local businesses
  • Jobs outsourcing
  • Earnings reports

We cull through hundreds of articles weekly and highlight (in Bi-weekly BRE News Research Reports and Real-time BRE Alerts) the vital pieces of business intelligence so that you don’t have to do it yourself.
