Gain insight into and become immersed in your customer’s world.

Qualitative Research & Contextual Inquiry

Gain insight into your customers as well as your competitors through qualitative research techniques. Contextual inquiry, our preferred method, involves observing your customers in their normal environment performing relevant tasks or workflows. These sessions can take on ethnographic aspects and can also have structured or guided components to the observations. We help reveal key usability roadblocks, automation or new product innovation opportunities as well as benchmarking in cases where competitor solutions are also used.

Quantitative
Research

Depending on the number of customers (or users) and segments or channels that are relevant, we may recommend conducting quantitative research (e.g. surveys) in parallel to running a contextual inquiry program. This can help augment the research effort by gaining a statistically significant understanding of certain baseline data such as physical environment characteristics, location or socio/cultural aspects, and accessibility requirements. Other analytics such as usage, adoption, and conversion can also be gathered, analyzed and then considered with the qualitative research.

Persona
Development

We will assist your team in identifying, prioritizing, and creating personas based on qualitative and quantitative research. These embody significant behavioral characteristics but are also backed by data. Data-driven personas are key for being able to anchor and map the customer journey mapping and design activities that follow.
