Our unrivalled participant pool delivers definitive datasets

If you want great data you need the best people. Our proprietary pool of participants and taskers is proven to deliver the highest-quality data of our leading competitors – including panels.

Our pool

Carefully recruited

Our proprietary pool is recruited and vetted thoroughly – and 100% human.

Our proprietary pool is recruited and vetted thoroughly – and 100% human.

Proprietary

Our pool is entirely our own - we don’t share it and we don’t use anyone else’s. So we know exactly who’s in it.

Vetted

We run onboarding checks based on attention, comprehension, and honesty and vet the weakest responses.

Verified

IP addresses are checked, then identities verified with Onfido’s bank-grade ID checks.

Diverse and bias-free

Our diverse pool gives you a rich and balanced dataset that’s less prone to bias.

All real, no repeats

No robots. And no repeat respondents with dual identities.

100% human

We don’t use AI participants to answer questions or do tasks – now or ever. Just 100% real human responses.

Closely managed

Participants are continuously monitored and managed so the quality of the pool stays high.

Visible

You can view key data for all participants before you start – including demographics, approval rates, and number of submissions

Monitored

We monitor participant contributions over time and improve pool quality to ensure consistently high quality responses.

Checked

Our automated algorithm, Protocol, performs  35+ different checks to detect and remove bad actors, bots and noticeably low quality participants.

Trusted

Our regular automated and manual checks look at approval rates, demographic information and researcher feedback.

Scalable

Whether it’s a small custom sample or crowd-sourced feedback at scale – your data will always be safe and reliable.
