Book Your Custom Exploratory Consultation

The purpose of having an exploratory consultation is for us to better understand your unique pain points and goals so that we can provide you with relevant information about our products and services. Please choose a time that works best for you. 



Choose a time that works best for you for a Google Hangouts consultation with a DotActiv specialist:

We believe that open dialogue is key for matching your business with a winning category management solution that actually suits YOUR needs.

Here’s what will happen after you book an exploratory consultation:

1. Your assigned specialist will research and evaluate your unique context. This includes any notes you have provided, the nature of your business, your role, interests, goals and any other relevant context that would add value to the consultation.

2. Your specialist will carefully personalise an agenda to match your interests, goals and context. The consultation is not about us - it’s about you.

3. Your specialist will reach out to you before the consultation to share the personalised agenda. When they do, you are welcome to request any changes or additional points.

4. Your specialist will, in consultation with our internal experts, curate and customise conversation points, content, a presentation and product demo inline with the agenda.

5. Depending on the outcome of the consultation, your specialist will schedule a separate custom advisory consultation to share our proposed recommendations with you.
