LONDON, June 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Toluna, leading provider of consumer insights for the on-demand economy, has completed a corporate rebrand to spotlight its value proposition and market position. Underpinning the rebrand is the launch of TolunaInsights™, the industry's first comprehensive, automated platform that delivers consumer insights in real-time. These changes mark a significant milestone based on the founding vision ten years ago to democratize market research, and reflect Toluna's evolution from a leading sample and survey provider to a comprehensive platform-based consumer insights company.
"Companies face a constant battle for time and resources when it comes to accessing and acting on consumer intelligence," said Frederic Charles-Petit, CEO of Toluna. "There is an increasingly urgent need across every business function for automated solutions powered by advanced technology that deliver reliable insights in real-time. TolunaInsights is our answer to that need in market research, and is the culmination of a journey we embarked on ten years ago as one of the very few technology-driven global market research companies. Our platform combines the power of millions of global influencers with world-class research expertise to ensure that companies of all sizes anywhere in the world stay at the forefront of consumer insight."
TolunaInsights is the industry's only end-to-end automated platform where audiences, surveys, communities, and analytics are completely integrated and powered by on-demand insights, and behavioural data from Toluna's global community. Toluna's platform-based approach provides significant time and cost savings, without sacrificing quality or confidence in decision-making, as Toluna's expertise is integrated into the platform. TolunaInsights enables users to leverage best-in-class consumer insight solutions on-demand, and was built to complement Toluna QuickSurveys, the company's real-time DIY survey platform. TolunaInsights provides clients with the ability to access an end-to-end automated solution for all aspects of consumer insights.
"After years of some of the world's largest companies using our proprietary consumer insight solutions, we understand the challenges facing businesses in today's on-demand economy. We are bringing TolunaInsights to market as a single platform to meet the rapidly evolving business need across all functions for agile, yet comprehensive technology solutions," said Phil Ahad, EVP Head of Products and Strategy at Toluna. "The efficiency and scale our platform provides is unrivalled, and our goal is to provide users with efficiencies that enable them to focus on adding value, as opposed to tactical execution. We become a true extension of any in-house consumer insights team."`
