And the winner is… Strategir’s VR development wins top prize
Innovative use of VR for product tests wins 1st prize at the French Marketing Awards 2017!
Strategir was recently awarded the 1st prize in the Research category of the renowned French Marketing Awards (Trophées Marketing 2017) for a joint study with Firmenich. The pioneering research approach gave Firmenich higher predictability for sniff tests by using VR. Virtual Reality was used to set the context for product tests which simulated the real consumption experience of a product. As context strongly influences our feelings and behaviour, the use of VR leads to more discriminating results. [Info] This year, there were ten nominees for the Research Award. Isabelle Goisbault, Head of R&D, Strategir said ‘We are very proud to have won the 1st prize despite the strong competition’. The 2nd prize went to Sociovision with NRJ and the 3rd prize to Ipsos with France Television.
With this award, something unique happened which has never happened before: Strategir won the 1st prize two years in a row! In 2016, Strategir won the same prize for a joint project with Samsung redesigning their Samsung Experience Store in Paris: [Info]
The added value of VR for your market research is significant. The immersion truly transports participants into a realistic context. We would be happy to show you more about our case studies for VR in shopper experience, laundry detergent fragrance and beer tasting. Get in touch to use our award-winning expertise as an input generator for new ideas for your market research.
Virtual immersion Golden winner at Marketing Trophy for product testing
A great product delivers a great experience but context strongly influences our feelings and behaviour. Product testing works best in settings that are closest to shopper or consumer life.
You may have seen our 2016 last year Golden award winning work with Samsung which showed the insights to be gained through realistic, active and immersive shopper experiences [if not, check it out here]. Sharing the same aim in product testing, Strategir and Firmenich have moved onto investigating whether VR settings positively impact consumer behaviour and improve data in sensory evaluation.
Wake up and smell the… laundry
Why virtual immersion positively impacts consumer engagement and product evaluation.
Through our latest golden French Marketing Trophy 2017 award winning virtual reality case study, you will find out:
- How virtual immersion can:
– Transport consumers to the moment of removing fresh washed laundry from the machine
– Engage them in their task and sharpen their senses
– Involve them in the fragrances and increase the quality of the data
- The golden rules to ensure success in your product evaluation

Unlock consumer decisions with individual machine learning volume forecasts
Forecasting is a vital tool to guide product development and launch, yet over three quarters of innovations are discontinued by the following year.
We believe that a key condition for success lies in making solid volume forecasts that not only identify whether the innovation adds value but also focus on understanding how consumers evaluate products and make purchase decisions.
Innovation research needs to go further than a macro-view of potential sales volumes and take into account the individual characteristics of each buyer.
Our individual by individual forecasting approach creates a virtual consumer panel from survey participants and matches this to the current market landscape. The Market Shaker® model then uses machine learning to simulate a whole host of purchase outcomes for each consumer moment by moment over time and so creates tens of thousands of virtual consumers.

360° immersion: Testing the reality of virtual experiences
Virtual reality (VR) is coming of age. Having initially brought new immersive experiences to gaming it is now being adopted across industry from travel to real estate.
VR’s promise for consumer insight is total immersion – to create virtual experiences so realistic that we feel and behave as though we’re in the real world. But do we? Understanding how virtual experiences reflect actual feelings and behaviour is crucial. We share some key learnings from our recent pioneering studies which assess the potential of VR to bring unique in-the-moment insights for shopper experiences, product testing and more.

A new identity thanks to 30 years of consumer truth
Today, clients define their strategies at a global level, but need to understand consumers locally. At the same time, new approaches are being adopted to track changing consumer attitudes.
Technology now drives consumer understanding: from neurosciences, big data, to web listening, virtual reality and digital tracking of implicit behaviours. It all adds up to many new potential insights, but only if you can analyse and put it into action.
