A Global Consulting firm was conducting due-diligence on behalf of an investor looking into acquiring a major infrastructure equipment supplier in Australia.
They needed to conduct 12 expert calls from across the value chain across a 2 week time period and were working with several expert network providers.
NetworksX leveraged a combination of existing relationships, custom research to identify experts that were bespoke to the request and introductions from experts in adjacent industries to source a dozen experts within the 2 weeks. These included:
- Former National Accounts Director at a major provider of equipment
- Procurement Director at one of the major infrastructure construction firms
- National Sales Director at a provider of safety equipment
After speaking with 6 experts over 7 consultations from across the industry value chain, our client was able to meet the scope of the due-diligence they had been asked to complete resulting in a successful transaction within the Australian Private Equity space.
Global Consulting Firm
A large provider in the Lawn care and treatment space was conducting research to understand the lawn and turf industry in western and central US. They were looking to understand the key player landscape and also get a better knowledge of the scientific and technical elements of lawn care in the region.
NetworksX conducted initial research and found that commercial experts from providers of lawn and turf services were not the right people to answer our clients' specific questions. We shared responses to vetting questions and advised our client that, given their line of questioning, a technical expert with a scientific background either in the education or scientific consulting space would be best suited. Upon looking through some of the feedback they agreed to change the focus.
On the back of getting our client to shift their focus to a different type of expert we connected them with 5 experts within the university and Agronomist space. The client conducted 6 hours of consultations and were able to get the technical knowledge they needed to complete their analysis on the region.
Western and Central US
An Investment firm got in touch looking to kick off a new due-diligence project where they wanted to look into digital visualisation in the Real Estate space, specifically within markets where vendors pay for campaigns.
NetworksX researched the key technologies being utilised to showcase homes for sale in the pandemic across the different markets. We spoke to local real estate agents to understand the decision making process of what tech to use in each campaign, how much is driven by the vendor and what technologies they expect to continue in a post-Covid era.
After completing our initial research we suggested that our client speak with experts at the technology companies producing this tech, senior employees at Real Estate head offices and online classifieds experts. We connected them with:
- Former Director of Sales at a major visualisation provider in Australia
- National Technology Manager at Australia’s 2nd largest real estate company
- Head of Sales - North America at a Virtual Tour Technology provider
A total of 8 consultations with experts across the US, Canada, Australia, and Norway across a period of 3 weeks that allowed the client to make a better investment decision
US, Australia, Europe
We were working with a client who was looking to get a deeper understanding in maritime connectivity solutions. Having researched the space for a number of years prior to this request, they were looking for experts who could provide an up-to-date and current viewpoint on the technology available, market landscape and future outlook regarding technology development.
NetworksX was able to connect the client with 2 customers within the shipping industry in Asia and the US within 6 hours of project inception. Following this the client asked us to source experts on 2 additional angles: Purchasing decision makers for Superyachts and a former executive from one of the key players:
- Head of IT Infrastructure at 1 of the top 5 Global Shipping companies
- Current Captain of a Private Superyacht
- Former Director of US Sales at VSAT communications provider
Our client conducted 6 consultations with us over 2 weeks which allowed them to meet their consultation goal and complete their market study.
A US based Consulting firm was working on a market benchmarking and education piece regarding the Australian cleaning equipment space. They were working to a tight deadline of one week and were looking to get a customer's perspective through speaking to experts that make purchasing decisions at large commercial properties (Eg Offices and Shopping Centres).
Through our unique research methodology, the NetworksX team was able to custom source and vet experts that were actively making purchasing decisions and could provide detailed insight around the product offerings of providers. Some of these experts included:
- Property Manager at the largest Shopping Centre Operators in APAC
- Co-Founder at Commercial cleaning provider with 400 office and industrial contracts
- Operations Manager at a Facilities Services Provider with 200 contracts.
We were able to source and vet 3 experts within the first 24 hours of the project.

What they said: “thanks for all your hard work on this project! We’ll call you again if we need ANZ help.”
