New York, NY (PRWEB) June 19, 2012
Confirmit, the leading global software provider for Customer Experience, Employee Engagement and Market Research is pleased to announce that JTN Research, one of the largest sample providers in Central and Eastern Europe, has migrated its panel business on to the Confirmit Horizons platform to support its ambitious expansion plans in the region.
JTN Research has grown substantially in the last five years, initially providing online market research services to the MR industry worldwide from its headquarters in Bulgaria. It now offers access to over 480,000 respondents via consumer panels in 11 countries. Panelists are the company’s most important assets and JTN Research believes that investing in the right technology guarantees quality of sample, ensures a sophisticated survey experience, and increases response rates.
JTN Research has used Confirmit Horizons for five years as its core survey design and programming platform. Its decision to make a further investment was based on its need for increased scalability, stability and security for its expanding panel business.
Marieta Popova, Managing Director at JTN Research explained: “We selected Confirmit Horizons over other panel management systems because we were confident that our data would be in safe hands. We were sure that the platform could be used for a variety of research tasks and would be able to meet any challenge we might pose, without compromising security or reliability.
“We needed to be sure that the migration process would be fast and error-free, but we also wanted to be able to leverage the knowledge of Confirmit and the programming resource that we already had in-house to re-build the panels ourselves. This would provide us with complete control over panel portal design, without having to rely on third parties,” she added. “We wanted one solution that would meet all of our MR needs and that is what Confirmit provides.”
“JTN Research achieved their goal of migrating all 11 panels to Confirmit in only six months, with the final panel in Slovakia going live in March 2012” explains Tim Hannington, EVP, Confirmit. “JTN Research is now able to offer potential clients a custom-built panel service, including design and creation, as well as panelist recruitment. We’re delighted that Confirmit is supporting JTN Research by providing panel hosting and rewards management, panel portal hosting, programming and hosting of web surveys, sampling and routing, advanced reporting and data analysis”.
“Looking to the future, we plan to use Confirmit to launch a new design for the panel, to investigate the development of mobile panels and to expand our panel portfolio with the addition of specialist sub-panels. More importantly we intend to introduce our services to new countries in the region, sure in the knowledge that Confirmit will provide the scalability that we will require,” said Popova. “We are delighted with the panel management capabilities that Confirmit provides and look forward to expanding our range of services even further to include custom panels, complex survey designs, full customization and interactive surveys.”
