• The International Partner Search (IPS)

The International Partner Search (IPS) assists U.S. firms in identifying interested and qualified overseas representatives, agents, or distributors for their services or products. Interested U.S. firms may order the IPS through a U.S. Export Assistance Center (USEAC) located in their city/state or directly from CS Kiev. After the client's application is reviewed for completeness, and upon receipt of payment and product materials, CS Kiev will conduct a customized search to select the most promising prospects for the U.S. firm. Based on search results, CS Kiev will directly contact the top prospects to review and discuss the U.S. firm's product lines and marketing objectives. A typical IPS report identifies up to five qualified, reputable and interested prospects. The report will include each prospect's contact information, company profile and history, prospect's opinion on the availability and capacity of the market for the client's products, the preferred language for correspondence, and CS Kiev Commercial Specialist's opinion on the contact's level of interest and qualifications. If IPS research shows that there is low/no interest in the market for the client's products/services, CS Kiev will report this to the client. IPS reports are prepared specifically for U.S. clients who order the report. The information contained in the reports is never revealed to other sources.

The preferred method for showing your products and company information to Ukrainian firms is your web site or electronic catalog/brochure. If a web site or electronic catalog is not available, we will require 20 sets of product literature. You should send your product literature (no products, no samples) by first-class U.S. mail, from the nearest Post Office, to our Diplomatic Mail Center address. Please plan ahead, as it will take approximately four weeks for us to receive your brochures through this mail service.
