MATCHMAKING STEP BY STEP
- Evaluating the Request and the Requesting Company
First of all we evaluate whether the request of the company can be fulfilled or not. If the request is feasible,
then we carry out a preliminary investigation about the actuality and reliability of the company.
- Creating a Company Profile
After approving the company and its request, we begin to gather detailed informations about the company to create a COMPANY PROFILE.
It is important that the company profile includes briefly the documents and information below:
- Company commerce of registration information (Certificate of Activity, Tax Chart etc.)
- Company introduction letter written by the company itself,
- Brochures, business cards, presentation videos and visual belongings to the company,
- Quality certificates, authorization certificates and licenses, etc. of the company and its partners,
- The company’s Financial Statements of the last three years,
- Valid business contracts, agreements and job summaries,
- Reference letters received from customers,
- Credibility and Efficiency letters from the banks,
- Large-Scale Research Process
We conduct the market research in accordance with the request of the company. During this process, we attend international fairs,
join different commercial organizations, search our company profiles or investigate our member network channels. At the end of this process,
we prepare a POTENTIAL FIRMS list out of the possible firms matching with the request.
- Presentation of Potential Firms
The list of Potential Firms which is generated based on large-scale research results, is shared with the company.
When the required discussions on the list are completed, the company can proceed to the next step of choosing an APPROPRIATE FIRM(S) from the list.
In the case that there are no appropriate firms among the potential firms list, the Research process can be terminated or can start again.
- Contact with Appropriate firms
Then we contact the chosen appropriate firms for the next stage, and a more detailed information exchange is carried out.
At this stage, some of the company’s profiles are shared in more detail. The same detailed information is also received about the appropriate firm.
- Meeting Organization
In this step, a meeting is organized between the related appropriate firm and requesting company at an agreed place and time.
Details are discussed between the parties in this meeting and if they come to an agreement at a certain point, this agreement
will be turned into a protocol/contract by ASK CONSULTANTS to be signed among both sides.
- Implementation of the Agreement
If required, ASK CONSULTANTS may implement the related provisions of the Protocol/Contract such as; merger, division,
forming the joint venture or establishing a new structure.
It would be wrong to define a certain duration time for Matchmaking service. This depends on various factors such as the sector
of the company, the demand of the the company and related country.
► It is anticipated that the 1st and 2nd stages which are “Data collection about the company and creating a Company Profile” can be completed within seven days,
► The detailed research process usually lasts around three months, and the research process can sometimes be extended for another three months if there
are no fitting results. (or notifying the company of the fact that this request cannot be satisfied within the current market conditions),
► If required appropriate firms are determined, the interviews between the parties are swiftly organized by ASK CONSULTANTS. As a result,
this process is anticipated to take around one month.
