The Further team brought expertise to the table which helped us in all aspects of the project, from recruiting high quality participants to fielding creative exercises and synthesizing the observations to key findings and insights. Not only did we get a first-hand view inside the lives and minds of our target consumer, we surfaced some great ideas and unexpected gems that are helping our client launch a new product with real confidence that we are doing the right thing!

Suzanne Allers

Partner, Untapped Innovation

I want to work with a team I could trust and a platform that offered the functionality we needed. Running a large-scale, complex, multi-market project for a major client in the automotive industry meant I needed two key things: confidence and control. I had both Working with Further

Colin Macarthur

We’ve used Further to host our online community for several years and they have been a reliable, trustworthy and flexible partner to work with. The software works consistently and we’re able to maintain high engagement with the community members over a long period of time.

Sarah Wright

Senior Insight Advisor, Transport Focus

Further’s  online qual platform allowed us to conduct a highly exploratory qualitative study for a blue-chip mass-market client, when we wouldn’t have been able to otherwise, due to Covid-19. In terms of headline outcomes, we were able to demystify the target consumer segment, reveal a bank of rich insights around consumers’ deepest motivations, and create a portfolio of ideas and concepts from quick wins for the brand, through to game changers which truly re-imagined the category. 

We loved working with the Further team and can’t thank them enough for all of their help, support and guidance.

Vijit Singh

Founder & Managing Director, iwish

The Together™ platform is a great way to engage respondents. It’s perfect for carrying out research in hard to reach areas of regional and rural Australia – and cost effective to reach a wide and disparate group of people. Creating a new project was straightforward, and the platform is set up to allow quick analysis of respondent data for fast turnaround projects.
