Getting Closer to Clients – Geographically and Technologically

Headquartered in New Delhi, Pure Research started working with a couple of US-based clients in 2012. Over the years, it has diversified its client-base to include leading corporates from the Europe, the Middle East and back-home in India. In December 2015, the company expanded its geographic footprint by opening an office in London, to gain proximity to existing and new clients in the region. Ankit adds, “We believe that the opening of our new office in London will help us address the growing client demand for on-ground presence and integration of local insights into our research deliverables.” In the coming months, Pure Research has plans to launch a digital delivery platform that would help clients monitor their supply chains more closely and use analytics to uncover key risk areas.
