Back in 2015, the use of online qualitative market research was pretty low. Digsite was first designed as an alternative to virtual focus groups that tapped into the type of social media engagement most people were (and still are) accustomed to. Six years later, a lot has changed, but our ability to help companies innovate by engaging and iterating with targeted consumer groups is still the driving force behind our work. Research technology continues to evolve, and we practice what we preach by constantly introducing better, faster and stronger features and capabilities.
