Technology and New Research Tools

Twitter, social networks and the internet are providing new and interesting ways to create research. Internet surveys, on-line discussion panels, and web based background research are now standard recommendations for most client projects.

More Background

Crantford Research oversees all aspects of a client’s project. In 2010, the firm began doing in-house recruiting for all client focus groups.

Key Development

In 2012, Crantford Research successfully used IVR polling technology to track numerous political campaigns. During this election cycle our IVR polling results accurately forecast the outcome of all client races two weeks before Election Day.


Combining mapping technology with traditional demographic analysis is illuminating an entirely new level of information for many research projects. Targeting for public affairs and consumer projects now has an entirely new dimension.
