We have broad experience in conducting different types of qualitative, quantitative and observation-based analysis to provide relevant customer and consumer insights that can be used in different customer, shopper, communication and innovation processes. Throughout our many years in the industry, we have gained extensive and varied experience and are adept at offering processes and solutions based to suit your needs based on acquired knowledge and experience.


We deliver category analyses tailored to your needs and market. With statistics, interpretation and experience we find: the relevant drivers in the category in different consumer situations, how existing players deliver on these drivers and identify white-spots.

We deliver positioning analyses to map the attractiveness of different positions, ensure brand relevance and explore the viability in potential brand stretch and extensions. Through a combination of product features and consumer benefits, we find attractive and available positions and explore how they can be implemented.

We deliver various idea and concept tests that map out the commercial potential for brand and / or line extensions, new launches or relaunches – both for products and services. Determining what should be deployed, improved or sheltered, can save the organization a lot of time and resources and ensure focus on positive innovations.


We test specific elements of the marketing mix such as design, packaging, variant name, brand name, taste and sensory perceptions to optimize new launches or reduce the risk of adjustments to the existing mix.

We conduct various price analysis to ensure that you do not charge too high or too low prices – and that the product’s price and value experience is competitive in the markets for the target groups you aim to reach.

We map consumer behaviour at the time of purchase. We consider how products appear and perform on shelf, which activities have the most impact, estimate sales, and map out the shopper’s decision-making and the purchasing process in different categories and industries.

We test the effect of communication and advertising activities – emotionally and functionally – both before and after the advertisement is completed. We find out if the advertisement delivers on target and in accordance with the “brief” for different formats and channels.

We have in-house capacity and experience in data mining, neural network, IA etc., and can assist in scoring and modelling to provide a broad approach to different problems.

We review the utilisation of existing information and evaluate whether the current allocation of resources provides a satisfactory return on your investment. We analyse the need for and usefulness of existing sources of information and suggest specific changes.
