Value of Market Research to Technology Industry
In a recent survey, Research Now, the global leader in digital research data for better insights and decision-making, and Lawless Research, a leader in market research for the technology industry, found that technology companies that conduct market research derive insights that are critical to their company's success, from higher customer satisfaction to greater innovation.
Some key findings in the report include:
· 83% of technology companies say the insights gained from market research are critical to their company's success.
· Nearly six out of ten technology companies conduct surveys to measure customer satisfaction, and eight out of ten technology companies say survey research leads to higher customer satisfaction and better strategic decisions.
· Tech start-ups are underutilising survey research, despite the many benefits it offers. Only 6% of tech companies conducting market research are less than five years old, and most firms conducting survey research have been in business for 20 years or more.
· When asked how their businesses have benefited from conducting survey research, more than seven out of ten companies cited increased competitive advantage and improvements in product design; while six in ten experienced greater innovation and an increase in sales or market share.
The online survey consisted of 300 U.S. technology company professionals who had conducted or commissioned a market research survey in the past 12 months. Respondents were drawn from Research Now's B2B online panel.
