Military leaders live by the maxim "know your enemy," and a new tool from marketing-intelligence company GinzaMetrics helps apply that wisdom to business.

Called Competitor Discovery, the SaaS tool gives companies a way to identify new competitors by analyzing the content, targeted topics and keywords from their own marketing efforts.

"The competitors you know about are only half the battle," said Ray Grieselhuber, GinzaMetrics' founder and CEO. "For most brands, new competitors are constantly emerging, while existing players are shifting focus to create content that drives traffic away from your site."

Competitor Discovery joins the other components of GinzaMetrics' suite of competitor intelligence tools, which help keep tabs on a customer's industry and other players. Part of what that suite offers is daily monitoring of content from GinzaMetrics' own customers and their competitors, factoring in social media, SEO and paid efforts.

Once Competitor Discovery has identified a new rival, it offers insight into the content, topics and keywords that might be driving visitors from your site to theirs.

Cost-per-click, search volume and search ranking status, along with a predictive "findability score" and projected traffic data, all aim to help customers plan future marketing and advertising decisions.

The findability score shows the likelihood that your company will be found by potential customers searching with particular keywords. The projected traffic metric predicts how many visitors are going to a competitor's site based on the topics and keywords you're tracking, and estimates the potential audience for each piece of content.

Pricing for GinzaMetrics' service starts at US$1,000 per month for a version targeting small teams and startups.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
