We constantly advance our research approaches to achieve maximum efficiency at all times. See under 'Products' to find examples of how we put these basic principles into practice.

Our special strength lies in the integrative mix of qualitative and quantitative methods.

For you this means:

  • One-stop availability of answers concerning magnitude, distribution, correlations ('how much-questions') as well as explanatory approaches and description of motivational backgrounds ('why-questions').
  • A designated contact person (research manager) supervises your project throughout – from initial analysis of the research required through finding the optimal method mix down to analysis and preparation of the results.

The following provides a brief outline of our methods. Contact us directly for details.
