Our claim to offer capabilities “beyond full-service” describes our ability to help you develop and refine an excellent request for proposal (RFP) before it goes out to firms you might want to contact for your research. With our extensive client-side experience we can help you draft an RFP that will effectively identify the right research methods for the research issue(s) at hand, helping you determine the right budget and make the right contractor choice for the research you need. We are happy to do this at absolutely no cost to you!

Within each of the capabilities listed, we know that it is imperative for us to consistently deliver information that is more reliable and more in-depth than the information supplied by other research firms. We often conduct mixed-methodology studies, where a traditional research method (such as an online survey), is augmented by conducting more detailed, in-depth follow-up research such as highly-targeted mini-groups, one-on-one CORE INTERVIEWS, or ethnographies.

Bottom Line: It is our CORE INTERVIEWING techniques used in surveys, focus groups, one-on-ones, and ethnographies that makes us different and better than other research firms.
