    Supercharge sales

    Our client, a major US insurer, wanted to engage with their sales agents who were based all over the US market. They used our Together platform to run a community forum where agents were encouraged to share experiences, put forward thoughts and ideas and collaborate to develop key sales collateral in a supportive environment. Our client wanted to learn more about the challenges they face, as well as develop valuable communication channels for future feedback. They moderated the study directly to gain first-hand insight from key agents, proving once again how easy the platform is to use.

  • Smiling Car Friends
    Innovate and explore

    VouchForMe is a European ‘insuretech’ start-up. Their innovative blockchain product and novel approach towards trust, and the power of social connections, has the potential to completely disrupt the consumer insurance market. Our research design required an online research community with 30 carefully selected consumers. This forum enabled us to quickly task and probe to find out what we needed to know. Hosted on our Together platform, we designed activities that surfaced people’s complex attitudes towards trust, risk, friendship and family – and how these intersect with attitudes to money.

    Fundraise like Unicef

    The research team at Further involved 33 British families (including mothers and children) in an online community, using Together. This deeply immersive method enabled the team to get close to the everyday lives of the chosen families. It also allowed the client to be actively involved in the process from beginning to end. To succeed, they need constant rethinking and reinvention. Having identified that ‘families’ may have a natural affinity with Unicef and be a fertile territory, Unicef commissioned Further to explore the nature of family life.
