“One of the most challenging aspects of commercialization is finding the right combination of strategic and tactical skills and experience in the specific market(s) that we’re targeting. David and his team at LongView Advisors are our domain experts for the CAD/CAM and manufacturing software markets. By running some initial workshops, they helped us clarify our product, strategy and positioning, and then led us through the process of transforming our ideas into an actionable plan. They then leveraged their expertise and extensive contacts in CAD and manufacturing to help us execute our plan, begin developing a sales channel, and we have a very good business emerging. We have been working with Longview for just over a year, and launched in November 2003. Since our successful launch, we signed an important reseller partner, built our initial pipeline and generated our first revenue, all while capturing the attention of the media with some excellent PR. I highly recommend the team at LongView Advisors for commercialization assistance in the CAD/CAM, manufacturing and related software industries.”
