“The research told us what we needed to know and having followed the recommendations, it was spot on.”

Ocean Services

Ocean Services wished to analyse the local market, to assess needs in the private sector and also identify market development opportunities across the public sector.

Our suggested approach

PFA Research recommended a mixed mode approach, encompassing a quantitative online survey across the general business sector followed by in depth, qualitative telephone interviews with commercial property owners (e.g. letting agents, schools, hotel & leisure and healthcare providers such as care homes).

Outcomes of the research

The research quantified the opportunity across different business sectors and identified which were most attractive to target. The qualitative information gave understanding of how and when long term maintenance contracts were awarded allowing Ocean Services to understand the procurement procedures they needed to address.

How it made a difference

The business went on to act on the research findings and successfully secured new business as a result.
