Yes1Extended analysis donehttps://vyprclients.com/VyprManchester, UKVypr provides 1) an online platform for online split-testing of concepts and products, and 2) a panel of 7,500 customers to participate in these split tests.
The platform is designed in a way to let customer segments make intuitive (system 1) choices and (using GPS and WiFi) let them answer questions at the same time they make other purchasing decisions.
efficiently running split tests onlinesolution
Two-sided:
For their users (surveyed audience, which they call their 'consumer community'): a mobile app that asks them to answer 'steers (their term for questions) in exchange for points, with which they can get small rewards (movie tickets etc)
For their clients: a self-service campaign builder to send out quick steers to the audience. They focus on getting quick, impulsive answers for the cosnumer community. Geo-fencing also enables to ask steers in-context, for example during shopping missions in-store and at fixture.
Innovation teams in FMCG and Retail sectors
Product managers charged with New Product Innovation
Test new products and concepts, packaging, pricing, naming, claims, ranging, etc.
Training programme needed to enable client to self-serve. They can rely on a dedicated service team with FMCG expertise.
Very local: Their consumer community is based in the UK
Mostly relevant for consumer products (e.g. FMCG)
Bias in the tool: their audience (the users of their app) earn points but mostly gets value out of seeing themselves as early adopter (as Vypr's clients ask them about their opinion on potential new products/services). Besides the early adopter bias, the user audience also consists mostly of the younger, mobile-native demographic.

It makes their community of consumers available to their client, to which they can send surveys through the Buffl app. The client can do the setup and analysis through the campaign builder and client dashboard.obtain feedback from potential customers and analyze itproblem, solution
+/- 2800€ to survey 500 people (providing it's a general audience). Includes limited support to set up the survey.
Two-sided:
For their users (surveyed audience, which they call their 'herd'): a mobile app that asks them to fill in surveys (or send a picture/video) in exchange for Buffl-coins, with which they can get small rewards (movie tickets etc)
For their clients: a self-service campaign builder to send out quick surveys to the audience.

Get instant solution validation during a hackathon, design sprint etc through an instant survey
Depending on the scope of your experiment, you can get input from 200 people within the hour.
Buffl claims to save up to 40% of time spent on user research
You need to design your experiment before setting it up: in our experience, Buffl works best when you have 1) a clearly defined problem or solution assumption 2) experience in experiment design to make sure you select the right experiment type (survey/video collection/other), and 3) take out any potential biases out of your survey before launching it. 4) defined metrics clearly
Learning the campaign builder tool is quite easy.
Very local: Their 'herd' is located in Belgium only so far, mostly in Flanders.
Mostly suited for B2C
Ideal for solution validation - but as most survey tools not ideal for problem validation
As they build their own audience (their 'herd'), it's currently mostly focused on Belgium.
Bias in the tool: their audience (the users of their app) earns 'Buffl-coins' but mostly gets value out of seeing themselves as early adopter (as Buffl's clients ask them about their opinion on potential new products/services). Besides the early adopter bias, the user audience also consists mostly of the younger, mobile-native demographic.
The client interface, where you see the results of your survey does the trick if you're looking for clear-cut answers. If you need to do more advanced analytics, find correlations and process data in different ways, you might find it limited.

Business designers who don't speak tech
Builder claims to deliver twice as fast, 1/3 of the cost and enterprise grade
They do this by aggregating global demand of builds, so that they can build smarter, not faster.
You need to have a clearly validated idea of what you want to build (concept, user experience, perhaps a wireframe), without having all the technical features in mind.
Most suitable to develop an alpha version of your solution
Most suitable if you want to build a marketplace, website, app, ecommerce shop, wearable, or mimic the functionality of an existing app.
If your project is not a commonly asked build, it is difficult to express what you need.

Surveys are biased, and Vempathy claims they remove bias through emotion analysis.
They do user research at scale, and help with automated reporting in order to save your time.
For example, instead of listening to 10 hours of UX test-recording, you can just scrub through the automatically detected moments of frustration, confusion, happiness etc in 5 minutes.
You need to design your experiment before setting it up: we suspect this works best when you have 1) a clearly defined persona and problem or solution assumption 2) experience in experiment design to make sure you select the right experiment type (survey/expert panel/one-on-one call/other), and 3) take out any potential biases out of your survey before launching it. 4) defined metrics clearly
In our (free) trial, the emotion detection was inaccurate, and the scrubbing was not possible.
For now only web-based UX is possible. Mobile is soon to be released. For most interviewees this is a pain

As output, it gives you some key advice to make your plan more realistic and calculates unit economics.

Steep learning curve to navigate QuidPro. Quality of insights depends on frequency and depth of use. In our experience, the barrier to use it was too high (even after training) to get the expected value out of the tool.
However, this was a couple of years ago before QuidApps existed, so this might have become easier in the meantime.

Even though debated by Quid, we saw a focus on US-based data, which made it less relevant for e.g. European companies.

The Grid's AI bot Molly makes a website uniquely for you: all the way from registering the URL to videos, images and text. It's not another drag-n-drop builder. It has designed over 200,000 websites so far. It asks you some basic information like desired site title, desired color palette/upload an image like a company logo, and Molly does the rest.

You need a company logo, an idea for your website
The previous versions didn't ask enough input from the user, due to which it felt more like a random-website generator (due to which a lt of websites look bland an often identifcal). It didn't allow you to say 'I want a video there, a button there, a ecommerce thingy here' upfront, nor did it allow you to change it. Therefore, for some people it even felt like a borderline scam: "I pay to get a beautiful website designed, I can't influence what it's going to make and can't even edit what it comes up with". Hopefully V3 will, as the previous versions did not feel smart at all.

It creates creative content (facebook ads, banners, videos, social media posts) automatically by computational design, and split many creative options at once on a large scale of users. Therefore, you can largely automate facebook ads, in order to validate solutions quicker and cheaper.
Besides that, you can also interact with users instantly through quick surveys, allowing real-time validation.
Noteable: In China, there are not as many privacy requirements.

Send survey, have one-to-one phone calls or moderated group calls with industry stakeholders to do rapid idea generation, first problem/solution validation, or challenge your strategy
Innovation managers
Human-Centred designers
Get instant acess to 600.000 experts in the field (ranging from Key Opinion Leaders, to nurses, to former executives of different stakeholders in the life sciences ecosystem). Leverage the existing GLG network to challenge your strategy, do rapid idea generation or first problem/solution validation.
You need to design your experiment before setting it up: we suspect this works best when you have 1) a clearly defined persona and problem or solution assumption 2) experience in experiment design to make sure you select the right experiment type (survey/expert panel/one-on-one call/other), and 3) take out any potential biases out of your survey before launching it. 4) defined metrics clearly
They have 650.000+ experts in many sectors (healthcare, financial, IT, legal, real estate, regulatory, tech, media, telecommunications, consumer goods, energy, industrials, ...) but they can recruit a custom adience too - that often takes 2 weeks.
Mostly suited for B2B.
Ideal for problem and solution validation
Bias in the tool: the experts get paid per time spent. There is a clear risk of having an expert bias, which will be especially counterproductive when it concerns non-incremental innovations/strategies (as experts are experts in the status quo, and tend to give very unreliable advise for future states).
