Delivering “in-the-moment” market research solutions

We employ the full range of digital methodologies to collect rich, global insights both qualitatively and quantitatively.

Online depth interviews
Using tools such as Zoom and InterVu to conduct in-depth interviews virtually. 
Online surveys
Research conducted online involving a mix of closed and open questions.
Online/ virtual focus groups
Synchronous (real-time) online discussions over a set time period (e.g. 2 hours) led by a moderator. 
Bulletin boards
Asynchronous research (conducted in own time) via a moderator-led discussion, lasting between 3-6 days.
Mobile surveys
Research conducted via mobile which can include audio responses, video and photo uploads. Surveys can also be run using social tools such as WhatsApp and WeChat.
MROCs (online communities)
Conducted over a longer period to collect longitudinal insights from patients or physicians. Respondents can participate in different tasks and share experiences. 
Facial analysis
Analysis of emotional reactions to visual stimuli using facial recognition software, used primarily in communications research. 
Social media listening
Analysis of social media activity to a particular disease or healthcare topic, evaluating language, sentiment and content. 
Virtual backroom brainstorm
Making use of online chat tools and private rooms so that clients can discuss the insights in real time.
UX and usability testing
UX research is used to understand user behaviours, needs and motivations for engaging with digital assets.
