Chat bot and voice bot based market research to

 understand your customer in the moment



Fast and affordable insight 

Conversational and engaging on any device

Research conducted by chat bot or voice bot is different to traditional surveys. Utilising a familiar chat format and crafted with empathy and knowledge of research, both our chat and voice based ‘surveys’ are fun, conversational and easy to complete.

We design conversations that reflect your brand and how your target prefers to communicate. We can reach your audience in the moments that matter with chats sent via SMS during or following specific events for more relevant in-the-moment feedback.

Our method captures both qualitative and quantitative metrics with a natural and easy flowing conversation that keeps users engaged, removing many of the barriers to alternative research methods.

Meeting your customers where they are

We offer a range of options – studies which are designed to be voice-first which your users can respond to from their smart speaker or phone with a simple voice command, or mobile optimised chats which are easy to complete from anywhere, with the option of embedded video. All our studies feature smart follow ups and intelligent design.

Smart reporting options

Our dashboards have been built using the latest AI tools to convert qualitative insight into quantitative metrics. This means that as well as the usual metrics you would expect from quantitative data, you can see how qualitative responses theme. and how they change for different segments. You can even drill down to verbatum responses.

Access results live via a secure dashboard or download a CSV file for further analysis.
No PowerPoint reports, saving you time and money.

Fast Results

We know you can’t always wait weeks for survey results which is why, in some cases, we can have your chat or voice powered survey in field within a matter of hours, with results filtering through to your dashboard in real time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is emotion recognition?

With their permission, we access respondent’s camera on their device to measure their emotional response to stimulus. Our AI model reads changes in their facial expression to measure how their emotions shift during the course of watching stimulus – such as an how they respond to an advertisement. We measure 6 key emotions: angry, surprise, fearful, disgusted, happy, sadness as well as neutrality to see how people respond overall to an ad, as well as the peaks and lows. This can be helpful to compare reactions to different altnernatives or highlight scenes with particular impact We can also identify the respondents age and gender using this tool. The technology operates in the background, without slowing down the users device and we do not keep a recordings.
