A comprehensive analysis of competitor products that maps out their existing features in a comparable way can help to understand industry standards and identify opportunities to innovate in a given area. QUESTIONS • What are the biggest pain points we are trying to solve, and who is doing it right? How can we align and restructure in order to make sense of the process? • What can we implement from the leaders of Customer Support (ASP), to create an evangelistic experience? RECOMMENDATIONS • Do a deeper dive into the competitors while being focused on specific target users and by completing user testing on the competitor sites to determine best practices and pain points.
