Where do we get our data from?

To ensure we deliver objective, data-based brand audits, we follow strict, industry-standard procedures when acquiring and collecting data from various sources.

  • Acquiring data from market research companies
  • Conducting our own data collection
  • Evaluations by multiple independent expert auditors

Data collection and acquisition

The two ways through which data is collected include primary data and secondary data.

Primary data is the original data that is collected first hand by us. The most common primary research tools are surveys, focus groups, in-depth interviews, and observation.

Secondary data is the data that has already been collected and is readily available. This data is pre-existing public information, for instance, government statistics; commercial sources like paid industry reports; and internal sources i.e. the market data that the organization already has in-house.

We acquire data from various sources, including data brokers and global market research companies:

  • Nielsen
  • IQVIA
  • Kantar
  • Gartner
  • IPSOS
  • GfK
  • IRI
  • Dynata

Data processing

We use Google Cloud Platform to make our data work. Diverse data types from various sources are automatically aggregated and converted to industry-standard formats that are compatible with the formulas used in our final reports.

All scores, numbers, graphs and charts in the final brand audit reports are generated by formulas – without any human manipulation that might alter the final results.
