Need an answer to a specific question?
Often off-the-shelf reports can leave you looking for more information. Or perhaps your requirements are so specific and unique there just isn’t a report out there. It’s at times like these you need expert help...
You’d be forgiven for picturing expensive consultants charging by the hour and projects that last months with little flexibility. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
CONSULT, by just-auto, is an automotive consultancy service that breaks the mould. We promise to answer your questions quickly and accurately, from a source you can trust and at a fair price that won’t cost you the earth.
Why choose CONSULT over anyone else?
As a publisher of automotive market research and data for the past 10 years, it’s fair to say we’ve provided some kind of data or report to virtually every major investment bank, consultancy, vehicle manufacturer or component supplier. And our new real-time intelligence service, QUBE, means we’ve more data, analysts and industry insiders to call upon than ever before.
We understand that limited resources, time-consuming processes and high-end fees normally associated with consultancy projects often lead to projects being shelved. With CONSULT we break out of this format, drawing upon our in-house analysts, extensive research databases and global network of industry insiders and consultants. Because of this we’re suited to the smaller, more agile projects requiring a fast turnaround. Typical project rates vary from £5,000 to £100,000 and can take from 1-week up to a year.
What can you expect from a CONSULT project?
When you undertake a custom research project with CONSULT, we promise to stay in touch throughout the project, always hit agreed deadlines, never go over budget and to be at the end of the phone or email if you have any questions.
Our approach relies upon primary research, talking with component manufacturers and gathering individual perspectives from within the industry in order to formulate our views.
Our network of contacts with component manufacturers and vehicle makers allows us to consider and interpret the implications of industry issues, rather than offer simple description-based analysis on incomplete secondary data.
“We [Bridgehead International Ltd] worked with just-auto to add deep automotive expertise to our team and found the alliance worked very well. The CONSULT team were highly responsive and very effective in eliciting opinion from leaders in the auto industry, synthesising that with their own knowledge and producing scenarios and forecasts. We have no hesitation in recommending them.”
David Alcraft, Executive Chairman
“just-auto understand our needs in terms of market research. Their friendly, approachable team are always on the pulse, and never fail to deliver (on time!).... Great team! Great service!”
Gwen Daniel, Technical Research Manager
These leading companies trust just-auto with their custom automotive research projects:
Here are details of some automotive consultancy projects undertaken recently...
Electric actuator market
In August 2010, a US-based technology developer commissioned CONSULT to explore the electric actuator market for certain applications. The budget was £10,000.
In less than 8 weeks, CONSULT provided them with a detailed analysis of the electric actuator market: identifying manufacturers, production volumes, applications, market trends and unit pricing for electric actuators with respect to each type of electric actuator and application.
The final report was delivered early and within budget.
Automotive glazing market
Starting with an initial custom market study in 2005, CONSULT has now been working with Belron (leading glazing repairer) for the past 5 years, and the relationship has developed into an annual contract for various automotive glazing market and technology studies.
Because of the flexibility of CONSULT, Belron is able to specify a new brief every quarter outlining their specific requirements. Our team of analysts then quickly turnaround a study with detailed analysis and data often looking at market drivers, market trends, forecasts and innovations.
Fuel tanks market study
After reading just-auto’s Global Market Review of Fuel Tanks report, this major petrochemical company decided that CONSULT was the ideal partner to drill down further into this market and provide detailed analysis and primary data of the fuel tank split between gasoline and diesel vehicles.
Working to a 4-week time frame and a budget of £7,500, the CONSULT team were able to produce an extensive study, delivered on time and on budget.
