Case Studies

A Catalyst For Change

An insurance company realized their customers didn’t perceive there to be value in one of their products. They decided to enhance the product with new features so that customers who don’t make claims can find value in being insured. We designed a two phase research project in order to develop and test the product enhancements.

In the first phase, focus groups were conducted in four major metropolitan areas to develop and refine the new features. In the second phase, the product was tested with a large online audience, where it received rave reviews. Through effectively designed research, our client was able to redefine an ailing product, transforming it into one of their most valuable offerings.

Your Guardian Angel

A manufacturer wanted to receive feedback on the performance of their products and customer service representatives, so they hired Advantage Research to conduct focus groups with their key clientele. We heard from one particularly disgruntled client who was on the verge of taking her business elsewhere entirely. This dissatisfied client’s feedback reached a representative within an hour, and one of the manufacturer’s most important accounts was saved.

The manufacturer recognized that having a timely read on their customer’s thoughts and feelings is paramount in saving ailing accounts, and so we began surveying their customers online on a recurring basis. With our proprietary Hot Email Alert system, a rep is alerted the minute a client submits negative feedback. As a result of the program, the manufacturer’s customer satisfaction and client retention rates continue to improve.
