Research Synthesis


Market research departments continually acquire data and information through primary research and secondary sources. The critical challenge in many departments is not of missing information, but rather of connecting related information from different sources to either discover new insights or validate existing insights, on the basis of which significant marketing investments would be made.

Strategic Insight Organizations focus on synthesized insights across data sources and studies.

Research Synthesis is a service that is designed to answer such questions and provides a framework, methodology and software tool for synthesizing qualitative, quantitative and tracking research, primary and secondary, to address specific marketing issues. It has the ability to “go beyond” any individual piece of information to discover a larger pattern in related information.
