– VP Research, International Education & Media Company

"We commissioned Scorpio Research to explore receptivity to a new healthcare technology offering among private practice physicians.  A combined approach of focus groups with one-on-one interviews helped us understand the benefits and barriers to adoption as well as identify the ideal audiences.  Most importantly, insights gleaned from the study informed our strategic decision regarding pursuit of this healthcare initiative. Throughout the process, we found the Scorpio team to be attentive, proactive, and extremely in-tune with our research needs and objectives. Their ability to quickly understand the scope of our interests and to drill into a level of detail that identified underlying perceptions and attitudes with participants was truly impressive."

“We were truly engaged by the breadth and depth of the conversations, and the candidness and raw emotions that you were able to evoke from these respondents in the ethnographies and focus groups.  It was amazing to see how you related to each person and made them feel valued and accepted and comfortable.”

“Many thanks to Scorpio Research for the work you have performed on our corporate positioning, and most recently the project to enhance our customer relationships.  I have worked with many marketing research professionals during my career and have to say you go the extra mile, and by far deliver a level of value most others do not.  Additionally, you make the work more fun and I think that’s the way it should be!  Thanks to you and your team for all you do support our growth initiatives.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with this firm on two occasions.  The first project involved in-depth interviews with owners of small businesses and the second was a series of focus groups with consumers. Both projects involved concept testing for a development-stage internet company.  Since our business was at such an early stage, we had little to share with respondents that was concrete, and nothing at all in the way of screenshots, creative, etc.  Because we wanted to get feedback about specific features of our model, however, the interviews and groups had to cover a lot of very granular material.  The interviews were particularly challenging because the concept had never been applied to small businesses and was therefore unfamiliar to all of our respondents.  The groups posed their own challenges, as the participants spanned a wide range of ages, educational backgrounds and incomes. 

You handled these challenges with uncommon creativity and grace.    Our discussion guides were very detailed and the moderator gave us clear, actionable feedback during the development process.  She managed to keep the sessions on pace to cover the material but never allowed participants to become overwhelmed or confused. Even more helpful, however, was the moderator’s sensitivity in session to what was and was not working, and her ability to suggest alternative approaches on the fly.
In both cases, I was very pleased with the outcome and felt that our research investment was fully justified.”
– CEO, Interactive Social Shopping Network
