Passenger, a leader in private online community technology and Asia Market Development Ltd (AMD), today announced the launch of an all new syndicated online community solution, AMDECHO. AMDECHO will bring together 4,000 consumers representative of China, in one place, to voice their attitudes and opinions.
AMDECHO is a companion service to AMD’s China Pulse, a national report covering economic and social trends, consumer sentiment, and industry specific understandings. Together they offer the world a window into China, specifically related to consumer confidence, the growing middle class, and expectations for the future.
Jeff Stewart, Managing Director of AMD comments; “We take great pride in AMD’s China Pulse because it lets the world know what China is thinking, all the time. China encompasses nearly 1/5th of the world’s population and China’s growth model has changed. Consumer consumption in China drives its’ overall growth and now it’s more important than ever to monitor it closely.” Stewart adds, “AMDECHO allows our clients to track consumption behavior and dig into industry and category specific consumers, on demand.”
Thomas Finkle, Passenger CEO says; “China has quickly become one of the fastest growing markets for market research and data analysis. As the Chinese economy continues to expand, the demand for consumer data will keep accelerating. We are thrilled to partner with AMD and offer a comprehensive solution that helps companies get valuable insight from Chinese consumers… quickly."
