Can you give any specific examples of how your company has benefitted from being an IMRG member?

Most recently we used insight presented around Christmas to our advantage. The insight was around a number of services present on desktop and mobile sites.  

It was a very unexpected and leftfield approach to just using the predominantly tangible data points we provide, and is being used to help in our Product Detail Page (PDP) redesigns.

Is there anything else you would like to add which could help contribute to a case study for IMRG?

“The presentations, predominantly delivered by Andy Mulcahy and Matthew Walsh are always entertaining – light hearted but stimulating, presenting exactly the right amount of data and insight, from the data points presented on screen and their explanations.

All of the team at IMRG are easy to work with, making membership a partnership more than a binary relationship.”
