SMB Market Research + Consulting
Small and medium size businesses make up the vast majority of organisations in every Asia-Pacific country. Indeed, they comprise over 97% of companies, but size is only one factor. TRA's extensive research into SMB demographics, technology adoption, buying journeys, and spending helps you understand the bigger SMB picture, including the nuances and details of market opportunities and succesful approaches to customer success. There are significant opportunities for vendors and channel partners, but few have mastered the market. TRA is the leading SMB technology analyst firm in the Asia Pacific region.
