The Felix Project 

The Felix Project were lucky enough to work with Shape the Future on a survey amongst our wonderful volunteers in March 2017. It was the first time wed commissioned a survey amongst our volunteers so it was a very consultative process during which Peter was extremely professional and supportive, providing a knowledgeable, friendly and efficient service. I dont have much experience of running surveys, but finding my way around Survey Mechanics was really straight forward and the results were presented in a very easily understandable and visually appealing format. Peter was really supportive with teaching me how to analyse the results and manipulate the data. I would absolutely recommend Survey Mechanics and Shape the Future to anybody looking in to commissioning a survey.

Shape the Future is an excellent service and the Survey Mechanics product is impressive.  Survey design is flexible and fast, and questionnaire layout is clean.  Results are instantly available and updated in real time.  Analysis (filtering, cross-tabbing, etc) is simple, immediate and intuitive.  Highly recommended.

I found Shape-the-Future very responsive and flexible and helpful. They rapidly understood our requirements, adjusted the proposal, research and analysis to our specific needs and were very quick in getting results back to us. We would definitely use them again on similar projects

Peter Martin of Shape the Future is a wise, considered character with considerable experience in his sector. Our online quant research was delivered swiftly & simply without a single intake of breath! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services again in the future good old fashioned service with a smile, can't be beaten as far as I'm concerned.

We needed to survey our 12,000 members in a short time frame. Shape-the-Future were wonderful, and took all the pain out of the task, from helping us with the question design to producing professional results charts that we presented to our Boards. Shape-the-Future actually made the whole process seem "too easy"! I would recommend them to anyone who wants a professional job done in a calm, hassle-free way.

Shape-the-Future's online, real time research solution not only achieves a high response rate but is also a quick and effective service - a refreshing change to other research services which can be very time consuming and are not always truly representative of the market. The report was not only beneficial in providing vaulable information which can be used to tailor our services and marketing activities more closely to the needs of our customers but also enabled us to generate high quality media coverage which helped raise brand awareness.

Having scoured the market for a suitable and cost-effective market research agency we were very pleasantly surprised with finding Shape-the-Future. They instantly understood what our requirements were and got working on the brief immediately after our initial call. We were particularly impressed with how cost-effective they were especially given the fast turnaround and high quality of their results.

Shape the Future provided a first class service. From initial questionnaire design through to ensuring we had the right analysis to meet our needs, nothing was too much trouble. In short, we're more than happy to recommend what is an excellent, cost-effective solution for online surveys

Our project board asked to feed back the following to you: They were really impressed with the short timescales that you met. Extremely pleased with the price you have quoted for all the work and very impressed with the content of the interim reports.

"Undertaking our research with Shape-the-Future was quick, easy and very cost-effective. They grasped our issues and the oddities of our business immediately, which was very reassuring and kept the time that we needed to input to a minimum. It was really helpful to view the research responses online in real time as they came in, and the final summary was an excellent, easy-to-read document that we readily shared with colleagues in overseas offices. We would have no hesitation in working with Shape the Future again, or recommending them to others."

"My first impression was that they understood the idea and most importantly what our objectives were for the consumer research study and why we needed it. They are prepared to give 100% to the project and they add value to the decision making process. For me, Shape-the-Future scored 10 out of 10 in all of these areas, but I think what was most impressive was the highly professional and timely manner in which the research study was put together and executed, the whole process from start to finish was completed in less than 4 weeks.

I am sure that and Shape-the-Future will continue to grow and prosper and I would not hesitate to recommend them."

"We used Shape-the-Future to survey as many educational establishments as possible in the South East to determine their current levels of maintenance and repairs to their buildings and assets.

In the planning phase of the survey their team gave us great advice and guidance as to how plan the route through the survey for respondents and to make it as easy to follow as possible to maximise the responses we received. The support during this stage and how the team worked with our desired objectives from the project were invaluable. At all times the team consulted with us and made any changes we requested as well as recommending a few others which proved to be very helpful.

Shape-the-Future's team organised and collated the responses to ensure that we could get the maximum use from the responses. They were also keen to discuss the results and re-work the analysis so that it matched perfectly with our requirements. "

This was the first piece of market research I have ever done, Shape the Future made the whole process very easy and stress free. They gave me help understanding the findings and some advice going forward. I would definitely use them again in the future.

"Shape-the-Future gave us some very useful advice on how we could use a survey to help our business. We asked them to set up a survey for us at very short notice and based on a very short phone conversation produced a survey that did almost exactly what we wanted. We were looking at our first results within six hours of commissioning the survey and it was completed over a weekend. In just over one working day we received a report we can use in our marketing and PR. Very fast, very professional, very helpful and great value."

"We did a market research survey with Shape the Future, combined with a mental agility test and product sampling of a food supplement. This was a project that was quite complicated due to the nature of our product, and the approach we were looking for was an unusual direction. Shape the Future proved that they were able to "think outside of the box" and provide a solution that helped us reach our goals. They were always very flexible, friendly and delivered high quality. I truly recommend working with them and look forward to out next project."

"I have found Shape the Future's services of great value, both in terms of the costing element and equally the quality of delivery in time and professionalism. Shape the Future were the first to provide me with a quote and also provided an expert service even when I asked them to completely change theresearch to fit a new market half way through the initial scoping period. They have enabled me to build a good foundation to further develop a business idea and as a result, have not just delivered the research that I required, but have become a well respected partner to enable my business to grow."
