Consumer Lab

Consumer Lab

Your Own Research Community

In our consumer lab, your customers and users discuss in an online community which is specially set up just for this. Your questions are debated with journals, moderated forums, chats and surveys – as a permanent lead user community or as a temporary instrument also for hard to reach target groups.

Interaction Among Participants Boosts Creative Potential

The innovative research approach unfolds numerous advantages compared to classic methods. Forum statements are often more fact-based and multifaceted than those in a classic group discussion because they are done without time or peer pressure.

The special feature of this community-based customer panel is the interaction with and between participants. First, participants discuss among themselves (e.g. in various forum topics). This allows us to discover new arguments which wouldn’t come to light with normal survey research. Therefore, this method is particularly applicable for the identification of user requirements
