Denver, CO and Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
GMI (Global Market Insite, Inc.) a provider of technology enabled solutions for global market research and GutCheck, which provides agile, qualitative market research to some of the world’s leading brands, today signed an agreement that will allow GMI’s clients to get instant target feedback via GutCheck’s on-demand community platform.
GMI will resell GutCheck’s on-demand qualitative community platform as part of its comprehensive suite of market research offerings.
GutCheck provides real-time access to target audiences so brands can get actionable answers based on real world feedback to business questions. GutCheck’s on-demand community platform lets companies find and connect with their audience in minutes, get feedback on and iterate concepts in hours – as opposed to weeks for other methods – so that brands and their teams make more meaningful, confident decisions. All of this is done at a fraction of the cost of other solutions.
This agreement reflects GMI’s response to clients’ desire to harness the speed and cost advantages of self-serve research, as well as its efforts to employ the newest tools for drawing in-depth insights from larger, more dispersed groups of people than is possible via traditional focus groups. It also enhances GMI’s capabilities with a platform that can be implemented in real time to jump start the research process. GMI expects to begin integrating the GutCheck capabilities into its product offerings early in 2013.
Daniel S. Fitzgerald, GMI General Manager, Americas, noted that GMI’s broad array of advertising and market research agency clients, in particular, will benefit from the additive ability to gain rich consumer insights under tight deadlines. “This solution is highly efficient for quick-turn research insights on consumer sentiment, as well as to inform more comprehensive farther reaching research projects,” he said.
Dan added, “The GutCheck platform is a logical extension to our core research offerings and builds on our highly profiled global consumer panel fulfillment, adding yet another extremely agile source for targeted respondent insights. GMI is known for adding value to every stage of the research process, and this initiative further builds on this promise.”
