Remote- and Onlinemethods

We have been using the methods of digital qualitative and quantitative market research for years. You can benefit from our wealth of experience if you are forced to switch to remote methods suddenly or in large numbers because of the corona virus.

We can support you and take over parts of or entire projects for you. We currently work in split teams, partly in the home office, so that operations can always be guaranteed. Since we have been practicing remote work in the institute for years, our processes are well established and proven. This also includes our internal recruiting department.
