We help our clients bring new products to market, tweak existing products, and design and re-design product lines. We also specialize in product and line optimization–maximizing reach and revenue. That optimization can involve pricing, product features, and information about product performance vs. the competitive set. We commonly employ Discrete Choice and Conjoint modeling as well as MaxDiff and TURF analysis.
Driver modeling helps us uncover the “why” behind the metrics. We use Driver modeling techniques like Gradient Boosted Modeling, Shapley Value Regression, Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines, and CHAID/C&RT to provide insight into increasing NPS scores, identifying which customer issues are most important to solve, and which attributes are most important to consumers.
We combine neural networks and AI technology with human intelligence (HI) to analyze large amounts of data at scale, including open-ended responses. This integrated approach leverages AI to overcome biases and expectations inherent to human interpretation in order to identify new and unanticipated themes, while HI enables fine-tuning of themes based on knowledge of what will be most useful to stakeholders.
