We believe that questioning and observing customers, testing products and being in the context (of buying or using products) is the key to detected irritants, problems, and real needs. At your disposal, you will have the tools to analyze data, interview clients and observing volunteers in a “living laboratory” – means an apartment with cameras.
Although, your playground of observations is limitless as there are 5,500 shops, market, and hypermarkets in France.
