Information is everywhere, intelligence is harder to find

The time you spend searching for information would be better invested planning and acting on it, especially when there is So. Much. Information!

For professional-grade research and analysis that’s flexible, reliable and economical, turn to LAC Group. Our information professionals are the talented experts you would hire yourself, and our services are customized for specific needs and budgets, from helping you manage to managing for you and any step in-between.

Maximize your information resources and investments

We enable you to focus on what’s important while easing the burdens of finding and disseminating information that’s relevant and reliable.

  • Internal staff support: Internal research or information centers swamped with requests, silos of information, coverage shortfalls—we build bridges, fill gaps and extend the business day.
  • Relief from information overload: Tools like content aggregators, current awareness platforms and media monitoring services  cast a wide net and deliver overwhelming volumes of information—we add the human element to enhance value and ease burdens.
  • Actionable insights: Very few organizations are capitalizing on opportunities or recognizing threats—we can help you make sense of information to achieve goals and improve outcomes.

The briefings, reports and alerts we deliver are people-led and client-directed, collected and contextualized in alignment with your strategies and plans. And with agreed-upon terms, you can get started in days.
