WISC Client Testimonials


"It was really helpful to get a third-party perspective and insights on how our company could profit from diversification. WISC helped us see areas where we could improve and thus increase our business."

- Tramont Manufacturing LLC

"60 percent of the information was immediately usable, including 20 to 30 new contacts and future business opportunities I did not know existed. The time this report saved me along with the in-depth contact information was invaluable." 

- Smartflow Technologies 


"Entering a new market is expensive, and, although several new markets were appealing, we needed to target the most promising market. We used the WISC information to successfully expand into new medical market segments."

"The WISC report led to closing two deals, which increased our business 60 percent in one year. It opened our eyes about what we needed to do to stay ahead of our competition and become more profitable."

"We turned to WISC to provide research to help us apply for a $750,000 SBIR grant for an e-learning program to educate rural healthcare providers. . . . We quoted WISC directly in several instances, which helped us complete the successful application much more quickly than doing this type of research ourselves."
- Terra Nova Learning Systems


“At the time I just had an idea and was unaware of where to look for help that I could trust. . . . Many good ideas never come to fruition because of inventor paranoia—the common conception of inventors that someone is going to steal their idea, but WISC’s reputation and research format are especially useful in calming this fear. The research provided an incredible amount of information, nothing I could have come up with on my own."
- James Dixon, Inventor
