Market Research & Insights
- Do you need to better understand your customers’ requirements?
- Is your team overloaded with too many “top” priorities?
- Is it difficult to get marketing and engineering on the same page?
- Are you wasting scarce product development resources on low priority requirements?
Expert Choice has the solution to help.
Whether you are using advanced methodologies like Voice of the Customer (VOC), Quality Function Deployment (QFD), Design for Six Sigma (DFSS), or Kano Modeling, with Expert Choice you can quickly and effectively get to your customers’ needs, so that your team can focus on developing successful products and services.
Unlike traditional rating scales, Expert Choice uses a unique approach called “pairwise comparison” to discover customer needs – essentially asking customers to trade off between requirements or features. We then combine this paired comparison approach with customizable screening surveys to help you segment your customers into effective marketing groups, giving you deep insight about each unique market segment, something traditional survey methods cannot do.
