Mobile: Don’t break the data

Webinar Focus:
Boehringer Ingelheim (BI) has observed an increasing rise in the use of mobile platforms in their market research over the last 5 years. This posed a key question, with the rise of mobile use and the ever increasing offering of surveys ‘enhanced’ for mobile or ‘optimised’ for mobile, what does this ultimately mean, if anything, for the data and what implications are there for how we approach market research in the future? 

To address this, Instar and BI designed a quantitative approach which involved running an existing tracker in 3 formats – traditionally’ (via PC), an ‘enhanced’ version, just using mobile, and a fully ‘optimised’ mobile version.  Ultimately, the research objective was to provide clear insight on how to optimise market research surveys in the future and for mobile devices specifically by addressing the following information needs:

  • Identify the impact of device type (PC versus mobile) on data collection and quality
  • Explore the role of survey layout and the extent to which different designs yield a consistent result
  • Understand how device type and/or survey layout impacts healthcare professional recruitment and engagement

Fundamental to supporting the survey design, Instar ran an initial workshop with the BI team which was focussed on ‘Hypothesis Testing’.  What beliefs were held by the team and what did BI think the research would show at this early stage?  This allowed Instar to capture the initial client viewpoint regarding the perceived impact of mobile devices on market research data collection, quality and engagement. This provided highly valuable context and a number of reference points around which the final study deliverable could be framed.

Members only webinar and there will be an opportunity to answer questions at the end of the presentation.
