To all DEALS users:
  • Speed. In the past, these projects took months or even years. But today’s quick pace demands rapid turnarounds. DEALS is fast, easy to use, and comprehensive.
  • Efficiency. Budgets and resources are tight. The economy is uncertain, so is the project’s viability particularly in its early stages. The project team can’t afford to unnecessarily allocate resources to a project. DEALS allows project teams to efficiently control early-stage costs, collect and analyze data, model results, and track negotiations.
  • Process. Companies and EDAs often have no personnel or process to dedicate to the project, at least not without disrupting the regular course of business. For a company, DEALS is a battle-tested decision process to model and manage a strategic yet rare project. For an EDA, DEALS is a process to see multiple projects from the companies’ perspectives. So, DEALS creates order out of chaos in one or many projects.
  • Flexibility. Projects are dynamic. The economic and demographic data, market conditions, and business scenarios certainly will change during the project. With DEALS, you can readily change decision criteria, model an infinite number of “what if” scenarios, and optimize the decision choices as the project evolves from conception through implementation. DEALS is a flexible, low-risk alternative to traditionally rigid methods.
  • Competitive Advantage. To survive and hopefully thrive, a company must gain advantage over its competitors — whether in workforce, operating costs, logistics, or market proximity. Similarly, each EDA faces stiff competition to attract or retain these projects, and needs to justify that its location is the best one for a company. With DEALS, companies and EDAs can benchmark cost structures and other location attributes against those of their competition. DEALS pinpoints the advantages – and disadvantages – in alternative business environments.
