- Consumer Sales – if there is a negative story about one of your competitors you can bring this to the attention of the people you are selling to, perhaps they are not aware of this already?
- Customer Services – if there is a story in the media about your services (e.g. a problem or a concern) then make sure you understand what your customer’s concerns might be by reading the same articles that they are
- IT – keep your IT department up-to-date with all the latest news about the systems and new technologies that can enhance or threaten the systems you currently have in place
