Many companies have turned to mystery shopping to ensure that standards are met and also to learn more about potential improvements. Deploying mystery shoppers to assess your brand, store, service, or product presents the potential of gaining more insights beyond your typical evaluations. This is where integrating mobile qualitative can greatly improve the data you gather from your mystery shoppers.
Civicom is a leader in global market research tools, providing audio services in almost every country on the globe, enabling mystery shopping studies to take place in multiple international locations simultaneously. Civicom’s primary mobile mystery shopping solution is Civicom ShopTalk™which enables your mystery shoppers to use their own smart phone or feature phone to get the job completed successfully. It gives companies the ability to get actionable insights into real world consumer behavior through mystery shoppers using mobile devices.
ShopTalk™ is a mobile qualitative tool that lets mystery shoppers use their cell phone to report in-the-moment experiences and answer the evaluation for their assignment. Going mobile paves the way for a less noticeable, paperless and hassle-free mystery shopping activity letting them focus on the things they have to observe and rate. They can freely comment and share their thoughts as they fulfill their mystery shopping tasks.
