Our Discovery Research Services

UX Diary Studies

Uncover valuable insights into users' experiences using a UX Diary Study. By examining user needs, behaviours, and habits, we track their journey, identifying pain points and unmet needs. Refine your product to better serve users, enhancing retention and engagement.

UX Mixed Methods

Our Mixed Methods approach integrates surveys, call centre logs, interviews, and diverse data sources to understand user needs, motivations, and desires thoroughly. We offer valuable, data-driven customer insights, enabling you to develop a product that works.

Contextual Inquiry

Gain deeper insights into user behaviour and preferences with our Contextual Inquiry service. We gather valuable data on product interactions and motivations by observing users in their typical usage contexts. Our approach digs deep into user psychology to identify motives and unmet needs.

Jobs To Be Done Research

Unlock your product's potential with our JTBD Research. Focusing on user tasks, we reveal underlying motivations, goals, and aspirations driving their behaviour. This approach uncovers innovation and enhancement opportunities, fostering customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Ethnographic User Research

Experience your users' world by observing users in their natural environment. We collect rich contextual data on behaviours, needs, and preferences. This understanding enables seamless product integration into users' routines, ensuring an intuitive and satisfying experience.

In-depth User Interviews

Understand user needs with our In-depth Interviews. Through one-on-one conversations, we delve into user needs, motivations, and pain points, achieving a comprehensive understanding of their experiences with your product. Our researchers are skilled in interview techniques such as Active listening to ensure we uncover the issues that matter.
