2021 is slowly coming to an end! Looking back at this year with a fresh eye and focusing on what it meant to our customers, we took some time to revisit what we have accomplished so far. It's been a period filled with fruitful cooperations, launching a new (web) survey builder and new functionalities in Panel Manager, building R-based vertical solutions integrated into Nebu Data Hub, and engaging more in promoting socially responsible market research. Let's take a look, shall we?

Historically, the research used to discount a multi-mode solution because technology optimized for each mode did not work well together. Researchers can be constrained by whatever data collection mode they have in-house, which is often online survey capabilities.

However, with the advances of our technology, research data collection operations can now enable processes that span not only modes but technology, vendors and organizations.

EcoMatcher works with companies all over the world and supports the integration with Nebu Dub InterViewer since 2018.

An active panel is a successful panel. Offering Rybbon's instant rewards or the points-to-rewards solutions helps to keep panel members engaged in completing profiling and research surveys. Incentivizing is the most effective tool encouraging members to take desired actions, such as submitting a survey or inviting friends to register to a panel.

Nebu Panel Manager is now integrated with Rybbon’s Digital Rewards Management platform to ensure the increased engagement of panel members and the work efficiency of panel managers. 

Help your clients to price products, determine product features and configurations, or needs-based market segmentation using the Conjoint method

Conjoint analysis is a popular method that uncovers consumers’ preferences. In an automated manner and in only a few steps it mimics the tradeoffs people make in the real world when making choices. Let's see how you can implement an end-to-end Conjoint method using Nebu solutions.

Understanding consumer choices with MaxDiff surveys

Collecting, analyzing and visualizing time-series data with Nebu Data Hub and R

Whether you wish to understand your customers' expectations regarding products, or which attributes drive their buying decisions, MaxDiff is the most effective and efficient way. In any industry! Let's talk about what this method really is (complicated) and how Nebu facilitates it for you (easy)!

What is MaxDiff, or as some other sources may refer to it, Maximum Difference Scaling, or Best-Worst Scaling? Simply put, it is a survey research technique used to determine preferences between a predefined set of items. By analyzing MaxDiff survey data, we can draw conclusions such as which one is the most/least preferred or rank them.

Whether you wish to predict the trend in upcoming elections, the impact of the weather on shopping decisions, or electricity consumption, time is an important factor that must be considered in collecting, processing and modeling data.

In this blog post, we will dive deeper into the time series. Time series data help to determine if a time-based trend exists and that knowledge can be used further, to predict future consumers' behaviors. We would like to share with you some of Nebu's good practices and tips on collecting and analyzing such data. We also show you some ready-to-use visualizations that you can apply using Nebu.
