Global Research Firm Launches Refined and Redesigned Web Presence for North American Business

Monday, March 08, 2010

New York, NY – Ipsos is stepping into spring with a fresh face to the online world. The global market research firm’s North American website has been completely redesigned with a new look, new features, and new ways for clients and prospects to better inform their business decisions and more closely engage with the company’s researchers.

“Our new Ipsos North America website is a powerful communications vehicle that is getting both a facelift and a rev up in its power,” says Elen Alexov, Director of Marketing Services with Ipsos in North America. “The Internet is a critical point for contact between our company and our clients, and also serves to inform prospective clients and employees about our services and methodologies. The new site connects all to a site that has better functionality, a new design, and more valuable information.”

The website – found at www.ipsos-na.com – offers a bevy of new and interesting features. Building off the best of the previous site, the new site offers more user-friendly functionality tools, greater profiling of key researchers and easier access to contact information.

Site users will also benefit from two new and important sections:

  • A new Products & Tools section featuring key North American-based products and methodologies offered by each of Ipsos’ five research specializations.
  • A new Knowledge & Ideas section consolidating all of Ipsos’ thought-leadership and value added content into one ready source, including articles, white papers, and Ipsos Ideas (the company’s monthly newsletter) as well as video features and an events calendar.

In keeping with the world of Web 2.0, the new site also offers the ability to resize text, to email and share pages through all social media websites, such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. An increased number of RSS feeds are also available.

And of course, the new site has a new look consistent with Ipsos' global brand.

“One of the most important features for our new site is the ability to communicate in the world of Web 2.0,” adds Elen Alexov. “With social media driving so much interest and discussion in business circles, we wanted to secure Ipsos’ place in that circle and make sure that we were active participants in the conversation. Enabling clients and web users to have easy access to share and discuss our content is the best way to do that and our team tied that into the functionality of the new site.”

The new Ipsos North America website will continue to evolve and plans are in place to add features in the future. These include ecommerce capabilities for purchasing selected syndicated studies online, the ability to bookmark favorite pages in personalized Ipsos web accounts, and an opportunity to better engage with Ipsos researchers by asking questions and receiving responses from key staff members.

The new website is available at www.ipsos-na.com.
