Customer Satisfaction Survey

“Marketing without data is like driving with your eyes closed.” Glasgow Consulting and Research conducts customer satisfaction surveys to measure how satisfied or happy the customer is with a product, service or specific point of interaction. In this sense, we ask if the product or service has met with their expectations, met their needs, and if issues have arisen, have they been resolved. We deploy a number of traditional and innovative techniques and resources to build our own diverse and extensive panels worldwide.

The methods of recruitment adopted by Glasgow Consulting and Research ensure a wide respondent pool to conduct surveys that aim towards delivering the highest quality data. Satisfaction helps you:

  • How likely a customer is to recommend your product or service.
  • A great way to explore service levels across different teams or areas of a business from customer service right through to billing and accounts

Pricing Analysis

As a pricing analysis consulting firm in UAE, Saudi Arabia, GCC and the MENA countries we understand pricing analysis as a process of evaluating your current pricing strategy against market demand. Generally, pricing analysis examines price independently of cost. The goal of a pricing analysis is to identify opportunities for pricing changes and improvements.

Typically, you conduct/ seek pricing analysis services when considering new product ideas, developing your positioning strategy, or running marketing tests. It’s also wise to run a price analysis once every year or two to evaluate your pricing against competitors and consumer expectations — doing so preemptively avoids having to wait for poor product performance. While availing our services we ensure that our client also gets their competitive analysis which examines the entire value proposition of their competitor’s products helping them understand whether or not they’re actually competing on price alone.

We look at their competitor’s marketing strategies, sales brochures and gain insights on whether they’re competing on price for the same product, or is there something else in the value proposition that impacts how they price products and services?

Knowledge of this before setting their own price helps clients set prices based on a level playing field. Seeing our clients succeeding and thriving is what drives us every day.

Forecasting and scenario planning

When working with scenario planning, we focus on those risks where the consequence is high and provide our clients with data to distinguish risk events from the structural supply chain vulnerability and impact.

Forecasts on the other hand attempt to predict the future; therefore, the forecast and analysis must be expressed in appropriate values and in periods which are appropriate to the task. 

A forecast and scenario planning result service can never be correct except by coincidence given that the future is always uncertain. It is usual, therefore, to qualify a forecast. Different predictions could be given, based on different assumptions or there could simply be an upper and lower limit either side of the best estimate. Our extensive work in scenario and forecast planning ensure the finished forecast is supported by a description of the underpinning assumptions and their effect.
