With hundreds of global transport research programmes across railways, airlines and airports, ferry services and business networks under our belt, we know the first place to start is with the audience. It's essential to really get under the skin of your users, passengers or stakeholders, with representative samples that offer actionable insights.
Our deep experience and solid reputation mean we’re vital partners for leading transport brands, from service providers through to industry bodies and regulators.
But we don’t just chase numbers. We delve deeper. We find the hard-to-reach users of transport. And we do this by combining a methodology neutral approach to research design with market leading analytics, innovative questionnaire design, and cutting-edge technology. It’s why every project we complete exceeds client expectations.
How we help
There are huge societal benefits from running an inclusive transport system. It’s something we’re passionate about. We’re experts in conducting research with hard to reach, vulnerable groups. Understanding the views of minority groups with very specific needs and requirements means clients can create an inclusive, optimised transport network. From conducting qualitative transport market research through to targeted ad-hoc and ‘always on’ transport research programmes, we’re here to help.
Want to embed a customer centric culture based around insight? You’re in luck. We build and manage customer experience (CX) projects for transport brands. Our programmes are built around our core CX principles: using the most appropriate methodology to ask the most appropriate questions of the most appropriate audiences.
It’s hugely beneficial to segment core audiences to improve your product and service design and marketing messages. When it comes to customers, users, and passengers there’s no one-size-fits-all. We’ve seen radical changes in modal choice, and changing behaviours that impact transport decisions. If you’re looking to design future service provision strategies, it’s vital to understand your customer segments, who they are and what they do.
Proposition development and pricing
Keeping up with other industries and the changing needs and behaviours of users or passengers is a continual challenge. The transport industry has evolved dramatically, offering increasingly innovative products and solutions. To help you maximise revenue, we’ve developed a range of proposition development tools to optimise your product offer, structure and pricing.
It’s time to give key stakeholders a voice when decisions are being taken. While long term government strategies have focused on shifting the costs of transport on to users rather than the taxpayer, there remains a clear need to understand the views of core industry stakeholders. From our MP panel through to locally organised bespoke surveys, we can supercharge your understanding of stakeholder views within the transport industry.
