Our clients consistently tell us that they value our services not only due to our accuracy, but also because we take the time to teach them how to use the insights we provide. 

ITR Economics is not just another data provider. We don’t just provide the best economic intelligence to reduce risk and drive profitable business decisions. We care about the implementation and execution of our insights, so we can ensure our clients experience the most success from our work together.

So how do we accomplish this? Through the consultative advising role we assume during report review calls and annual onsite visits.

When we meet a client on the phone or in person, we cover macroeconomic updates and drill them down to actionable advice based on the trends' expected impacts to that specific client. 

Our team of business economists who are not only well-versed in all things economic but also translate that to business application brings you a unique advantage, both for your planning and for your gaining an advantage over your competition.

One of our clients, Troy Bishop of Schneider Electric, says,

We no longer use an internal economics team or even a full-time economist for our US business. Therefore, we benefit from having a 3rd party agent who is fully engaged in the economic outlook and can bring those insights to us as it pertains to our business… I consider ITR a niche company that can spend the time to get to know my business better and spend time to help me understand the economic factors that drive our business.”

He goes on to say,

"I need confidence that the economic data provides a consistent accuracy. We have eliminated some suppliers of economic data in the past because the accuracy fell short and the value of having another inaccurate dataset is not justified. Again, it’s not only the accuracy of the data but the dialogue between the company and the forecasters that is key.”

Here at ITR Economics, our true desire is to make a difference in the world of business. Receiving the feedback that our business model provides companies such a strong foundation from which to flourish gives us pride and satisfaction. 

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
