Emerging research methods.
Harness new research techniques to uncover deeper insight.
Emerging technologies are opening up new opportunities for market research, allowing us to get closer to consumers than ever before and uncover insights that previously had been inaccessible.
As a future-focused agency, we’re proud to be at the forefront of new method exploration and testing. We’re always on the lookout for innovative approaches that offer genuine benefits over legacy techniques so we can help you build an ever deeper understanding of your customer.
From neuroscience to passive tracking, we have a particular interest in methodologies that allow us to move away from a reliance on ‘reported’ behaviors. By going beyond what consumers say and understanding how they actually behave, we can uncover new opportunities for your brand.
We have partnered with some of the world’s best-known brands to pilot at range of innovative techniques. We harnessed AI driven language analysis to help Starbucks identify whitespace for innovation in its bakery range and partnered with Unilever on a ground-breaking trial of blockchain technology in research – the first of its kind.
And we continue to push the boundaries. Through our involvement with IIeX’s innovation competition, we partner and mentor start-ups that have most promise for our industry. And drawing on our own design and tech experts, we’re able to pilot new methodologies in-house. Right now, we’re working on harnessing augmented reality for concept testing – both within online surveys and via online qual. This commitment to innovation means we’re able to deliver against our clients’ evolving needs to offer faster, cheaper and more effective solutions than ever before.
The impact emerging methodologies can have on your business:
Identify whitespace for innovation
We’re able to identify unmet needs by going beyond what people say and understanding the behaviors they don’t recall or can be reluctant to report.
Optimize products and services
Emerging methodologies allow us to understand consumer behavior in context and see how products and services are really used.
Understand consumer sentiment
By harnessing publicly available data, we can explore patterns in consumer sentiment via opinions and reviews shared online.
