Why Crowdsourcing: eyes and ears in store and at home
Gathering audit data via our proprietary mobile technology allows manufacturers and retailers to engage their customers while they are using their products (as consumers) and while they are purchasing their products (as shoppers) in a more efficient and cost-effective way. (learn more...)
We collect information from anywhere in the country. From day one, Field Agent launched nationwide with a mission of providing a link from people sitting in a workplace to useful information at retail or at home.
We disrupted the industry by cutting costs out of the current brick and mortar system. We utilize crowdsourcing and mobile technology to deliver quality at an affordable price.
Thanks to the power of mobile technology, we can collect information from multiple locations in hours and days instead of weeks. Our process is very efficient and launching a project is a click away.

Types of Audit Work
On Shelf Availability
We do more than make sure a Demo is set up and open at the right location at the right time. We can also ensure that the demo execution is following the correct script and that product is available to purchase. We provide a photo of the set-up as well as details regarding the location.
Quality: How can I trust the data?
As business people and researchers, we understand the value of privacy, security and reliable information. We rigorously evaluate the data points we receive to ensure your data is accurate. Field Agent can offer customized quality control when needed.
We are members of ESOMAR and MMRA and follow their guidelines and best practices:
Experience real time analytics as your project's data comes in. Our Agent Services Team is on the clock 24/7 performing quality checks on all data that is submitted from our Agents. We provide data reporting in 3 ways:
Any Client with an account can log into their dashboard to view data as it streams in real-time. The dashboard also calculates top line analytics to provide a snapshot of the data as it is received. To efficiently view and export photos and video clips, simply select our Lightbox interface. You can also export the data (via .csv or .sav files) to perform analysis in Excel or SPSS.
Many of our Clients that deal with thousands of data points, photos and video files need access to a more efficient tool to view, tag and store data. Our Client Portal does just that. Similar to iPhoto or Picasso, we store data and custom reports in a single location as an online database. This allows you to research all of the combined audit and research data in one convenient place.
We have a team of analysts and researchers that are ready to deliver a custom back end report full of analytics and insights for projects. From cross tabs to video clips to powerpoint presentations, we can provide what is needed to deliver a custom reporting experience for internal and external presentations.
