The customer context is increasingly challenging, competition is intense, and the market is complex. Consumer brands have less time to respond and zero room for oversights. Strategy remains critical. To leverage a customer-centric approach, you need a solid understanding of customer needs and behaviors, instore and online. It’s time to understand your business through the eyes, voice and behaviors of your consumers.

Where do you fit? Are you maximizing your position? Within our consumer research team, we can provide a wealth of range architecture, usage and attitude and trend analysis tools.

In times of high inflation, successful brands must continue to invest in new product development (NPD) to reach new category buyers, steal share and grow incremental value. But between 60-80% of innovations fail due to poor performance around development, implementation or marketing. We have a range of solutions that allow our clients to move through the NPD funnel with confidence. It’s time to launch innovations and succeed in the marketplace!

We’ll help you develop new ideas with our consumer and expert immersions. Test and validate the needs and wants of your key audiences and understand the size of the market you want to target.

Validate your concepts to maximize opportunities for in-market success in a complex and ever-changing world. We screen early-stage concepts, as well as conducting total unduplicated reach and frequency analysis (TURF), price and pack optimization.

Around 80% of new products fail because organizations don’t apply a rigorous framework to their development and implementation. Once you have identified your concept, we can test the product both in the home and out of home environment.

Conduct a final mix test with volumetric forecasting to validate your new product concept.

To maximize the effectiveness of any new product innovation, you must look at the whole picture; test, evolve and adapt. This includes testing the impact of your packaging and your marketing campaign on target audiences.

Monitor early launch performance and conduct final mix validation testing.
