Posted on May, 17 2010
Enables Market Research Companies to Offer Custom Panels
Toluna, one of the world’s leading online research panel and survey technology providers, has announced the North American launch of the Panel Portal Reseller Program. PanelPortal is a leading custom panel/Market Research Online Community technology (MROC) that leverages Toluna’s successful ‘communities’ model, used commercially in over 30 countries.
The PanelPortal solution is designed to allow users to manage the entire panel creation, management and data collection process through a fully integrated and extremely intuitive interface. The solution comprises three core modules; advanced survey software, panel management and web community management. Market research companies add value to clients by managing panels and designing panel usage strategies and surveys.
More than 100 global firms license and leverage Toluna’s various technology products to generate insights and drive revenue with their own clients.
PanelPortal is unique as it leverages features from Toluna’s panel ‘community’ platform. Toluna has been building panel communities since 2002, and clients see real value in this new approach to respondent management. PanelPortal enables clients to conduct traditional market research surveys with a pre-targeted audience and to “listen” to community members interact with one and other. This “listening” often provides insights that are not gathered with traditional market research surveys.
Scott Weinberg, Director, Technology Sales states “PanelPortal resellers are provided with in-depth training and product support. We’ve found that our channel partners approach us because we provide a turnkey solution and their sales representatives can take PanelPortal into the field immediately.”
