DEALTEK works closely with US executives as well as foreign
investors for projects primarily in the United States, notably including
investors from the Asia Pacific region. The work ranges from the early
stages of strategic planning for capital investments to the details of
location selection, including the financial modeling of alternatives and the
support of incentive and other project negotiations and approvals.
Their work with leading economic development agencies also
contributes to timely knowledge about many leading business locations,
including timely data for use in their financial project planning model,
also known as DEALS : Development, Expansion and Location Solutions.
In addition to their consulting services, they also offer
DEALS as a software product which helps executives or communities to compare
business locations through a model for estimating the financial impact of
alternative project scenarios. It can also be used to support the
comparative weighting of locations by important selection factors for a
project. This can support the early stages of planning as well as the
comparative analysis of specific locations to help narrow the alternatives
for a project.
DEALS is part of DEALZone, which includes a process for
maintaining data about local areas as inputs for the model. Such
information can be updated by the local area representatives through their
website by submitting suggested changes.
Another aspect of DEALZone includes support for the project
definition process, such as to clearly define what is important for a
project. There is also an electronic conferencing process to share
planning information and analysis in confidence, such as when project teams
are spread across various locations, or need to be supported more rapidly,
flexibly, and efficiently than through travel to meetings by the team
members, their professional advisors, or other participants in the planning
DEALTEK has also worked closely with the National Association
of Manufacturers to provide professional location consulting and incentives
support for projects beyond the free information-gathering work offered by
NAM member services through NAM's relationships with many participating
communities as the sponsors of such work.
The professional background of Rhett Weiss includes both
legal and "Big 4" financial services experience from the strategic planning
level through the comparative analysis and financial modeling work for
project location alternatives.

A proposal was recently made to DEALTEK about participation in the SICR service, and is in the review and approval
process. It is on the same basis as proposals to other location
consultants, namely, a non-exclusive and independent, success fee
relationship to get to know their capabilities better and therefore be
well-prepared to introduce executives who might otherwise be unaware of
their existence and their relevant capabilities to support investment project decisions.
Service proposals would be agreed directly between DEALTEK Ltd.
and the investor.
