Test Supermarket

We are the first market research institute in Austria to provide a test supermarket in our Viennese facilities. A 40m² big replica shop is installed there which is permanently equipped with non-perishable products of all categories, e.g. beverages, snacks, etc. For clients’ requests it can always be extended to further product categories. Additionally, there are ice boxes and refrigerators provided, that can be equipped to the point.
Plus_whiteIn this specially created atmosphere that simulates supermarket conditions in a very realistic way, the shopping habits of a proband can be observed and analysed. Via video transmission, the impression of real time shopping behaviours can be obtained without interfering or influencing their decision making processes. Through a true to life setting, this method allows to generate high validity results, creating a better overall picture to the probands’ reactions towards the entire product mix- consisting of packaging, price and comparison of competitor environment.

Perception Analyzer®

We are the only market research company in Austria working exclusively with the perception analyzer®, a new instrument focusing on the advertising appeal research that was developed in the U.S. by the consulting company Dialsmith. The Perception Analyzer® is a wireless, interactive response system that can assess real time feedback of consumers. While consumers can express their reactons by the help of a device while watching a movie, clients and researchers can follow their reaction curve on a screen.
