23/11/2018 London. ROCCO publishes it’s annual vendor Innovation report, “The Innovators”.

 The benefits that come with a stroke of genius are something we all dream about, as they represent another intrinsic human quality: the ferocious desire to feel needed, useful and wanted. A creative mind would always remain restless; someone with a strong will and a vast imagination would usually aim for the original, the unique, the better, the newer solutions. 

Innovation comes then not only as an additional chance to succeed, but also because of the possibility to shine and attract, satisfy customers and inspire millions.

Many companies have faded overtime due to slow adaptation (MySpace, Vine, Compaq, Blockbuster Video, etc) and many are in the process of erasure or rebrand (we all recognise them in the market), struggling to keep up with the latest trends and the burning stamps of people’s perceptions. What might’ve been a hit yesterday could be history today. Are you keeping up with the whirlpool of new age technology? If not, you should, for things are bound to get easier, faster and cheaper and the opportunity must be spotted before it’s too late.   

About ROCCO’s Innovators Report

In the last 6 years ROCCO research has been publishing Vendor Performance Reports and in so doing supporting MNOs with these important investment decisions. One of the major requirements of MNOs taking part in our research has been to understand how Vendors perform in the area of innovation. Adapting and being flexible in delivering the diverse needs of MNOs is after all an inevitably in International business.

In 2016 we decided to broaden our research into some specific areas and we asked our research base of over 500 MNOs which areas were specifically appealing and while many KPIs for performance and leadership are fundamental to delivering services, Innovation was the one that they told us was the most important.

Taking all the Vendors in the marketplace that we have in previous reports featured, we created 18 KPIs specific to Innovation in three broad categories:

  • Leadership
  • Creativity
  • Engagement

and we asked MNOs to tell us more about the Vendors in these specific areas. MNOs were asked via social media, and our mailing list and given over 6 months to complete a confidential survey to allow us to gather their perceptions and experiences.

The KPI’s featured some important criteria, which are significant to the optimal delivery of services as well as Vendors ability to innovate. What we publish here in this report are the aggregated perceptions of MNOs on the industry vendors and which in their opinion are truly “The Innovators”.
