Who We Are

the new standard of decision support

SAI was established nearly 40 years ago with a focused vision of providing clients with a new standard of decision support grounded in an intensive field-oriented business research methodology and executed by seasoned industry-experienced professionals.

The firm trains its consulting staff thoroughly in effective interviewing that is in full compliance with applicable laws and ethical guidelines. The staff is, of course, also trained in accessing secondary sources, in analytical skills and in effective communication. SAI continually seeks to improve upon this unique and successful methodology.

We have worked with many of the world’s largest and most successful corporations as well as financial institutions, trade associations and government agencies. Building long-term partnerships with clients is a key element of our success. We provide support on issues that drive competitive advantage and performance.
