True Custom Research

We typically begin a project by having an in-depth discussion with your team to make sure that we fully understand what you need to know – and then propose a research solution that will give you the answers you need, when you need them, without breaking your budget.

A senior MAi Research executive will work with you through every phase of a study, from questionnaire design through final presentation, providing you and your team with a clear direction and a specific plan of action.

MAi Research recognizes that each study, whether large or small, is unique.  Our clients benefit from our custom approach and our full range of resources on each and every study.  We deliver:

Creativity:  Creative study designs suited exactly to your research objectives

Innovation: A variety of cutting edge research methodologies including proprietary tools that other researchers can’t provide.

Expertise:  Regular collaboration with the some of the most experienced market researchers in the business

Quality:   The peace of mind that only the best quality control can give you—the kind that lets you relax because you know everything will be done right

Insight:   High-level analysis that tells the story behind the numbers clearly, concisely, and insightfully
