Recollective Baseline provides businesses with a way to gain a better understanding of their customers, allows marketers to test ad concepts, and provides entrepreneurs with a way to seek feedback on ideas. On the platform, which is optimized for mobile phones and tablets, groups of people can be engaged anywhere and asked open ended questions to which they can respond in text, images, videos, files, and other rich media exercises in an easy and organized process.
Recollective Baseline is a simplified consumer targeted version of Ramius’ Recollective Professional, an online community based research platform used by marketing research agencies and brands to elicit insights and feedback. With the launch of this free service, Ramius Corporation is making its first public move to open an entirely new market for online qualitative research.
“Traditional survey tools such as SurveyMonkey have already validated mainstream interest in online insight tools, but don’t allow for the socialization of responses and ongoing engagement,”
At the heart of qualitative research is the idea of engaging a group of people in a conversation as a means of learning their motivations and behaviors. In most small and medium sized businesses, this is usually done informally and, in the research community, through focus groups. Recollective structures this process and essentially brings the focus group online in an online community, providing users the tools needed to understand why and how their audiences think and act as they do.
“Recollective Baseline is a game changer for small and medium sized businesses and how they gain insights to make better decisions. It’s a platform for engaging and understanding their customers better than ever before,” said Alfred Jay.
“Recollective Baseline could well be the SurveyMonkey of qualitative research tools. Recollective was already an innovative platform. This new consumer offering is absolutely disruptive,”
Recollective Baseline is the first software of its kind to be offered to the public for free. To create your own study on Recollective Baseline, visit http://recollective.com/
