Knowing what your targeted market wants, needs, and beliefs, and discover why and how consumers use a product or website or why they have decided not to buy or use it, is what you need as a company in a strong competitive community. Market research provides answers to these important questions. How can you collect these answers?
Experts in market research
As experts in the field of market research and data integration, we recognize the challenges and bring in the knowledge to assist and advice you.
Our solutions help market researchers uncover respondents’ unique behavioral patterns, as naturally as possible.
Understanding consumer behavior
People tend to say one thing, while their behavior suggests something completely different. Because most of the information they gather is processed in the subconscious of the human brain.
With our tools, we can turn these subconscious thoughts into meaning. Moreover, our consultants have advanced degrees in the behavioral sciences, which provides a unique ability to uncover behavioral patterns and turn them into actionable results.

Emotions in market research

In addition, the software provides you with information about head orientation, gaze direction, action units, and person characteristics.
A real-time representation of the circumplex model of affect describes the distribution of emotions in a 2D circular space, containing arousal and valence dimensions.
Eye tracking technology
Often eye tracking technology is used to gather information about attention. We are an authorized reseller of several eye tracking systems, including stationary and head-mounted systems.
Head-mounted eye trackers in particular are suitable for recording behavior in a natural environment, such as buying or choosing behavior in a store.
Desktop eye trackers are extremely suitable to record eye movements of your test participant. Show an advertisement, commercial or poster and see exactly where your test participant is looking.
Emotion theory suggests that physiological reactions underlie changes in overt emotional responses.
Record a variety of psychophysiological signals for neuromarketing and neuroeconomics applications that require a study of consumers’ sensorimotor, cognitive, and affective response to marketing stimuli or decision making tasks. Record:
- Brain activity
- Heart rate
- Galvanic Skin Response
