Product Development & Testing
You can have the best product trial in the world, but unless you get consumers to buy again, your product won’t survive in today’s cut throat market. In fact, Nielsen data shows that products that don’t deliver a great consumer experience only have a 5% chance of in-market success. With a flexible range of product testing solutions that integrate traditional in-home product testing with the latest in mobile based consumer research methods, we can help you get the most complete and actionable understanding of your products’ strengths and weaknesses.
