OUR STORY

Founded in 2012, Researchscape International is an agile market research consultancy delivering high-quality custom and omnibus surveys, automated reporting tools as well as other research-related services, to marketers and agencies.

Our surveys are frequently used to drive thought leadership, support content creation, and help grow organizations’ public profiles. Other services support specific client needs including concept testing, feature prioritization, crisis communications, customer satisfaction and more.

We work with the most reputable research panel providers to meet our clients’ needs for fast, accurate and rich data. And we are sticklers when it comes to following research industry best practices for questionnaire design, sampling and weighting to produce representative results that meet journalistic standards. All our survey design and post-survey research review is handled in-house in North America for adherence to the highest quality standards.

In the real world, every organization has budgets and spending constraints. That’s why Researchscape believes in complete pricing transparency – our service costs are published online with no hard-sales push or surprise fluctuating costs.

PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE

Though we pride ourselves on our speed and efficiency, we never lose sight of the human element in all our work. Our senior and experienced team is high-touch when it comes to helping you make informed decisions – whether it’s about questionnaire design, data analysis, or simply how to get started. We’ll brainstorm with your team and recommend the most prudent way forward to achieve your desired results. We go the distance to cement long-term relationships.

GLOBAL SUPPORT

Researchscape International is headquartered in sunny Sarasota, Florida, with project management support and software development in Ottawa, Canada, and sales/marketing based in St. Louis.

Our first three projects were surveys within Saudi Arabia, Sweden, and Taiwan, and we’ve provided research around the world ever since – everyone from start-ups, nonprofits and educational institutions to Fortune 500 organizations. We enjoy partnerships with best-of-breed research panel companies in 126 countries. Our day-to-day assignments range from quick in-country surveys to elaborate, multi-country studies.

TECHNOLOGY-INFUSED

From our inception, we decided to embrace technology to obtain the best results for our clients and to strip out unnecessary costs. Good examples of our proprietary technology, that most clients never get to see, include our panel integration tool, which allows us to use multiple sample sources and then deduplicate multiple responses from the same individual, and our automated report generator, which delivers highly accurate survey results – both text and graphics – to our clients.
