Exhibiting at the Marketing Week Show


Exhibiting at the Insight Show at Marketing Week Live at Olympia in London

We research, analyse and model how customers and consumers choose and make decisions, in order to help businesses forecast, plan and optimise market strategies to better meet customer needs, and develop specialist software to gather and manage market knowledge.

Using leading edge research tools and bespoke software combined with business insight and high quality research knowledge, we work with businesses, from start-ups to global multinationals, to help them understand the key drivers in their markets.

"It was a pleasure working together and I suspect we may work together more in the future. If I can ever offer a reference for you, please don't hesitate to let me know."

CEO CINgroup Software

"I have been very impressed by the overall management of the project from the brief, through the fieldwork, the analysis conducted to the presentation of results. The communication between yourselves and us has also been clear and prompt.

The presentation gave the audience a clear understanding of a complicated study. Our Circulation & Marketing Director, was also impressed."

Research Manager Northcliffe Newspapers

"Our key research objective was to obtain a hierarchy of consumer needs for our NPD programme, but exceeded our expectations by also building us an excel-based model to test consumer preference for different product scenarios - we got much more than we expected!"
