  • Is Mystery Guest Research also used for online journeys?

  • How do Customer Journeys and Mystery Guest Research go together?

    In a Mystery Guest Research, we go through all the steps of the Customer Journey. At each step we measure how this step contributes to an excellent Customer Experience. Unique to our method is the ExperienceCapture in which conscious and subconscious emotions are recorded for each step.

  • What criteria determine the cost of a good Mystery Guest Research?

    Each research consists of Project Management, Briefing, Execution & Reporting. The cost for execution is the biggest part. This cost is influenced by the number of measurements to be performed, the complexity and length of the assignment and the profile of the Mystery Shopper. > More information

  • How can I research the Employee Experience?

    Employee Experience is measured within different groups of employees, investigating different departments. Such a survey > research usually takes place once per quarter, but ideally every fortnight. In this way, progress and policy can be monitored and adjusted immediately.

  • Why is the feedback from mystery shoppers reliable?

    Our mystery shoppers receive an extensive briefing before the start of their assignment so that they are always well prepared. The number of assignments per mystery shopper is limited in order to guarantee quality. On top, there's an internal control before the delivery of the final results.
