Our market research helps you understand your customers, your competitors, and your marketing environment, whilst our social research provides meaningful insights and reliable indicators about social environments and outcomes. We apply the latest theories and intelligent, rigorous design to provide accurate and timely research that allows you to make clear and unambiguous decisions.

Small, Medium, and Large Businesses

We offer businesses a range of strategy and research services which capture and analyse your customer information, examine emerging trends and potential disruptors, benchmark your business and position your marketing strategy, optimise financial and operations management, increase your productivity and reduce your costs, evaluate opportunities for outsourcing and expansion, drive business growth and innovation, and ultimately support sound decision making. No matter whether you are starting, running, or selling your business, restructuring, or diversifying your products and services, we can help you to develop and improve your business, financial, and marketing performance by providing an informed perspective derived from data-driven knowledge and the wisdom of our highly experienced researchers and consultants.

Local, State and Federal Government

We offer quantitative and qualitative research across all areas of government policy and service delivery including program evaluation, population studies, community health and wellbeing, workplace participation, social inclusion, and cultural studies. We also offer client satisfaction studies across all government programs and services. Our research consists of a full range of methods, including face-to-face, paper-based, online, focus groups, in-depth interviews, and case studies. We customise our methods and strategies to suit our client’s needs. We also partner with relevant research providers to offer clients the most appropriate research methods. Client confidentiality is assured.

Schools, TAFE Colleges, RTOs, and Universities

We help educators by offering services such as program and policy development, grants funding submissions, tender writing services, evaluation research, and tracking studies. Grant and tender writing services involve designing customised, innovative solutions, which include project plan development and SWOT analysis. We can undertake high level research and utilise government and private sector procurement plans to expand business potential for clients. Our staff will liaise with key stakeholders and relevant government units to ensure compliance and capability.

Clubs, Industry, and Professional Associations

Clubs, industry, and professional associations have particular needs. Typically this translates into lengthy discussions about how to improve member services and thereby be perceived as offering greater value and relevance. To do this, we offer members satisfaction studies, tracking studies, evaluation research, program and policy development, funding grants submissions and tender writing services. Our services include project plan development and research-informed marketing and communications strategies, tactics and materials that will allow you to attract more members and sponsors, deliver compelling services to the community you operate in, enhance the quality of the services you offer, and help you assess your association’s value and key performance indicators through benchmarking and best practice research.

Healthcare, Not-For-Profit, and Community Organisations

We work with healthcare, not-for-profit, and community organisations in a number of ways. Typically, these involve ad-hoc, project-based, or short-term research. But for clients requiring long-term care, we offer either research facilitation (where we manage the research conducted by your organisation), or research outsourcing (where we do everything required for an agreed period of time). Under all of these arrangements, we offer comprehensive research to develop organisational plans, evaluate programs, and identify grant and funding opportunities. We also offer analysis and critique of organisation and government policies so that we shape your advocacy position and inform your interactions with government and other stakeholders.

By working with your organisation to define, differentiate, and communicate your service offerings, we help you to align with the missions and mandates of government and philanthropic bodies so that you can gain easy access to funding opportunities. By preparing funding submissions and supporting materials, as well as managing the evaluation of projects and services associated with the requirements of funding bodies, we help to reduce your administrative burden.
