A college bookstore was publishing textbooks for college professors and their courses. The store wanted to expand it’s business and needed to find potential clients in certain subjects.

A high technology company needed help in locating key technologies for a patent infringement lawsuit.

The company sued 22 companies for patent infringement.

A non-profit needed help to determine whether or not the price of their refurbished desktops and laptops was competitive. By using UsedOttawa and Kijji, we recommended a new pricing scheme.
