Why Choose CRG Global Inc?
- We are industry leaders in Quantitative research, with expertise in product testing, design execution, and uncovering insights. With both online and offline expertise, we regularly craft a custom data collection approach that allows CRG to execute quality data collection on the toughest projects. We have developed and implemented intricately detailed data collection protocols to provide the highest level of credibility, reliability, and accountability
- We have a high-quality online panel with almost 500,000 respondents in the US. Most respondents are recruited from our mall or gateway locations. Our response and participation rates, especially in more “task” related projects, are well above the industry average.
- We offer a step above in Qualitative research. The CRG senior research team has a history of success in partnering with clients to create and execute innovative and new research methodologies both online and in-person. This provides deeper insights into consumer habits, emotions, and daily routines. We have varied experience with projects in an offsite location (e.g., beach, restaurant, bar, model home, etc.) or an on-site location that is set up to simulate a specific user experience (e.g., bar environment) with the objective to gather consumer perceptions, behaviors, and attitudes in a setting that closely simulates a “real-world” user experience.
- We can leverage both our in-person mall recruiting and online recruiting capabilities to execute your project in the most optimal manner.
- Following CRG’s ongoing commitment to deliver the highest quality data, we utilize our Confidata QA (CQA) application in projects programmed internally. The CQA program monitors and measures interview quality in real-time. In addition, before a respondent is confirmed for participation, a mobile re-contact through our CQA process is conducted for respondents to verify their qualification and agreement to participate. These re-contacts are managed from our corporate offices.
