Cable and Telecom Association Showcases Innovative Ipsos Research Tool

Ipsos ConStruct™ A “Twist On A Standard Method”

Wednesday, February 15, 2006

New York, NY – Cable and telecommunications industry professionals who gathered at a major trade conference witnessed first hand the power and usefulness of a proprietary on-line concept-building tool from Ipsos, the global survey-based marketing research firm.

Ipsos ConStruct™, which reduces the amount of time required to bring a product to market, was showcased during the “Twist on a Standard Method” Business Session at the Cable & Telecommunications Association for Marketing (CTAM) 2006 Annual Research Conference. The conference, an annual gathering of cable and telecom industry researchers, was held recently in Scottsdale, AZ.

“We were proud to have been selected from a number of entries for this showcase,” said Julie Busch, Vice President of Ipsos Insight, a member of the Ipsos group of companies. “Representatives from leading companies in the industry expressed genuine interest in the usefulness of this type of product development tool.”

By engaging target audiences right from the start, Ipsos ConStruct™ employs a quantitative approach that bridges the gap between the qualitative stage and the concept testing stage to ensure that the tested concepts are the right concepts. By tapping into your target market to identify the features they are most likely to buy or use, your target market builds their ideal concept for you, thereby reducing the risk of testing the wrong concepts. With Ipsos Insight’s proprietary ConStruct software, clients get a ‘feature set’ that is valued by their target market and a complete concept description that they can feel confident testing in the marketplace.

“The presentation was especially useful for those considering Ipsos ConStruct™, as it allowed them to experience first hand just how their target group is able to construct a product based on their needs and values,” Busch added.
