We attribute this growth to a relentless focus on delivering agile insights for clients, continuous investment in new products and services delivered via our proprietary platform ex-plor, and to increased demand for multi-country insight communities.
Researchbods has a growing and loyal portfolio of international clients including Deliveroo, O2, ITV, HSBC and Hearst. With the launch of ‘ex-plor lite’, a pop-up community designed for quick turnaround research, we have attracted a significant number of new global clients looking for in-depth insight delivered at speed.
“Our customer community was a genuine lifeline for us.” - Deliveroo
Kate Davies, Consumer Insight Manager Global at Deliveroo comments:
“Our Customer Community was a genuine lifeline for us at a time where traditional research methods, particularly qualitative, were no longer readily available and had to shift online. Thanks to Researchbods we were able to respond extremely quickly to an influx of research requests from stakeholders who were hungry for insight on how consumer behaviour was constantly changing.”
In the same fiscal year, Researchbods has welcomed 23 new hires, bringing the headcount to over 100, and made 13 promotions. The company also launched a new Customer Success division to ensure clients achieve both their short and long-term goals. Researchbods is planning to continue its growth trajectory into 2022 to meet the ever-increasing demand for agile customer insight, real-time data capture and analysis, and access to the most innovative insight platforms.
Jonathan Clough, Managing Director at Researchbods adds:
“The whole company has continued to pull together to create and deliver agile solutions for our clients, helping them get the consumer insights they needed at a rapid pace. Our latest financial figures are a massive testament to the amazing team we have and the talent and dedication of each member of staff. I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved and feel we’re in a strong position to realise our growth plans over the next few years.”
