  • Organizations today face increasing challenges when trying to collect information. Global insights are dispersed across multiple different sources, and getting necessary overviews takes significant time and effort.

    • SCOUT accesses this spread of information from a singular source: our Innovation Graph. Updated daily with the latest information from millions of different data points, you can access this wealth of information from any perspective, anywhere, anytime, at your fingertips.

  • Innovation processes are highly complex involving many individual actors from researchers to experts to managers. Aggregating data from so many different sources requires individual consultations that take time, and collected data has to be reprocessed.
