    We help our clients with various types of researches

      Customer satisfaction

      Would you like to increase your turnover by improving customer satisfaction in the construction, installation and home improvement sector? USP conducts customer satisfaction research in these markets to help you succeed. Enhanced customer experience and customer satisfaction is a key factor that helps a brand stand out and grow its market share

      Branding

      The more distinct your brand is, the more valuable it will become. Being distinct is not that easy when playing in the field of construction, installation and home improvement, however. Professionals tend to stick with their favourite brands. Our branding studies all come down to one common goal: increasing long-term profitability by introducing, maintaining or growing your brand in a wildly competitive landscape.

      Customer journey

      Een customer journey (klantreis) is de persoonlijke ervaring van een klant met uw bedrijf. Hoe reageren uw klanten op uw producten, diensten of concept? Het evalueren van een klantreis stelt u in staat om de sterke en zwakke punten van uw bedrijf te verbeteren, waardoor het behoud en de omzet van klanten worden verbeterd. USP kan u helpen uw aanbod af te stemmen op de behoeften en wensen van uw klanten.

      Segmentation

      Use segmentation research to categorise your customers in different groups that are distinct from each other in terms of relevant aspects for your product, service or concept. We not only help by determining these customer groups, but also by translating this information into the offered services and service provision, and explaining what all this means for your employees.

      Market exploration

      Perhaps you plan to enter a new market with your product or service. In that case, you need to understand exactly what is going on in that market. What are the trends and developments in that market, and who are the most important players?We use a range of methods to identify the market characteristics, such as market size, segmentation, distribution hubs, key media, market developments and sector culture.

      Product development

      Are your product and service portfolios still competitive within the market? Keeping up with continuous developments like digitalisation or sustainability are extremely important. Product research is vital in the entire product life cycle.

        European Architectural Barometer

        Each quarter, USP’s prediction model forecasts future building volumes in eight  European countries. Aside from forecasting volumes, we use architects’ insights to study key trends like BIM, prefab, changes in DMU, the changing role of architects, and many more. Knowing where, how and when these trends become relevant is key market intelligence necessary for sound strategic decision making.

        Contractor Monitor

        The main aims of this research are to give construction product manufacturers a good understanding of European contractors (who they are, what they do, how they behave) and the main trends in the construction market.

        European Home Improvement Monitor

        In this online study, we track the home improvement jobs that consumers do (or outsource to professionals) in and around their homes. We report insights on online orientation, purchase channels, brand preferences and DIY behaviour. The study is held in 11 European countries and is based on 26,400 interviews per year. Detailed category insights are available for more than 20 specific product categories.
