    Customer Journey Mapping

    People experience brands, products and services every day across many different locations, on multiple devices, online and offline, in-the-moment and over time. We know that people make choices based on the quality of their experiences. We understand that their relationship with the brand, product or service is sometimes constructed from hundreds of composite experiences and moments, all of which need to be captured, understood, interpreted and improved upon in future.

  • Pre Tasking
    Online Pre-Tasking

    If you’re planning a focus group or online community as part of a study, you’ll probably want to run a pre-task ‘homework’ exercise beforehand. This allows you to get a window into the world of your participants. Pre-tasks are also a great way to get participants 'warmed-up' and thinking about the topic, so that they arrive prepared for group discussion. Examples of pre-task activities on a mobile research platform include food or media consumption diaries. Using an online pre-tasking saves you time on paperwork and increases participant engagement.

Features & Activities

Participant engagement

Great design and UX that your participants will love. Tandem's flexibility allows you to iterate activities and vary participant interaction to keep their attention. It's like a researcher's dream box of tricks. Participants love the social media type format of our mobile research platform. You can expect 95%+ engagement once the study is underway.

You need the ability to ask questions in different ways. Whether you want to be implicit or explicit, Tandem's flexible activity builder will help you capture the information you need, creating modular activities with a mix of qual and quant tasks.

Multimedia insights

Pictures and videos can offer a shortcut to deep insight and are as important to your research as written responses. Your participants can upload images, video, text and more to the mobile research platform. You can design activities that encourage them to share their visual world with you.

Powerful tagging and coding

Being able to uncover key themes in your data without leaving the platform saves you time and effort. Tandem lets you start tagging and coding your data as soon as it arrives, using text-tags, annotation and emojis. Export data into excel for further analysis.

The set-up on the administration side is extremely intuitive and the platform has been carefully built to provide all the required areas for the researcher – from an activity building area, to the input of participants, a dashboard on participant response rate and more "
