Company Description

Symmetric, a Decision Analyst company, provides sampling services to companies that place a very high value on representative samples, scientific sampling methods and advanced fraud-detection systems.


Quality is always top of mind. After a member joins one of our panels and completes the double-opt-in verification process, we take it a step further and verify they are providing thoughtful and truthful responses before they are confirmed as panel members. This triple-opt-in process helps ensure panelists’ engagement and quality. Our average panel member tenure is 3+ years, compared to an industry average of less than six months.

Symmetric applies advanced technology and sophisticated systems to create and manage some of the best online panels in the world.

CATI services

B2B audiences are getting harder to find online, and when you do find them, the data quality concerns creep up more often than not. CATI is a great alternative to finding and validating these audiences. Symmetric has the capability to program and conduct CATI surveys or connect to your pre-existing online survey to have the data in one location.

The human element

Each survey we program contains open ended questions that ask all respondents to go into detail about the survey they just completed. Those who do not answer properly are removed from the survey completes. Validating with technology is only one of the steps we do; validating that a respondent has read your survey and understood it is an added step Symmetric offers that no one else does.
