Long-term partnership to deliver best-of-breed panel delivery capabilities
AUSTIN, TX (Sept 11, 2012) – Kinesis Survey Technologies LLC (Kinesis), the industry leader for future-proof market research software solutions, and Federated Sample, provider of the world’s leading online sample procurement solution, jointly announce a partnership to integrate their product offerings and enhance market research data collection processes.
The initial phase of integration will enable Kinesis Panel™ clients to easily optimize their market research sample within Federated Sample’s Fulcrum solution directly from Kinesis’ user interface by either increasing delivery into their own surveys or by selling sample on the Fulcrum network. Kinesis Panel is the most powerful solution available for managing market research panels and executing panel research studies. Fulcrum is the market-leading online sample procurement and white-label routing solution. Utilized together, Kinesis Panel and Fulcrum will enable market research companies to improve workflow automation, as well as offer them additional monetization options for their sample assets.
“The co-development efforts for Kinesis Panel and Fulcrum will provide both cost and time savings in the fielding of market research projects, as well as enable another means of monetizing panels, which is vital in a toughening economy,” said Leslie Townsend, Kinesis President. “Kinesis is very pleased to partner with Federated Sample – a true innovator and leader within the market research industry.”
Longer term integration planned between Kinesis and Federated Sample will support the acquisition of augmented sample from Fulcrum via the Kinesis platform (for both access and enterprise panels), and will also allow utilization of customizable routing tools for online survey research. As a leader in mobile data collection solutions, Kinesis will be working directly with Federated Sample on the 2013 release of the Fulcrum mobile routing solution.
“Combining the robust capabilities of Fulcrum and Kinesis platforms offers companies one-stop access to all of the tools necessary for executing world-class market research projects and expanding revenue channels,” said Patrick Comer, CEO and Founder at Federated Sample. “Federated Sample looks forward to an ongoing and prolific partnership with Kinesis.”
