Why use us?


If we were standing in an elevator, we’d tell you that Columinate is the full-service, modern market research agency that’s known (and awarded) for making clever simple. But, we’re not standing in an elevator, so here’s a little more convincing for you.

We’re pioneers.

We’re known for many firsts, but most notably for being the first full service digital research agency in South Africa and for launching the first local market research online community. Since 2008, we’ve kept that momentum going by winning many awards (and client praise) for our work.

WHAT WE DO

We’re cost-effective.

We use no field workers; populate no call centres; send no interviewers cross-country. Compared to traditional agencies, Columinate offers such value for money that using us and our online surveys is a no-brainer. We make clever simple, but we also do it cost-effectively.

HOW WE DO IT

We're experts.

Computers are brilliant. But they can’t actively solve problems as they arise, interact with respondents if needs be, generate insights or interpret data. Our team of highly skilled research technologists, data scientists and psychologists is human, so they can.

OUR AWARDS

We're fast.

Data is not often known for its nimbleness. But Columinate is proud of the fact that our research timelines and service flows are super-quick compared to traditional players. We’re willing to compromise, make a plan, and change direction, and we generate and process all data in-house.

HOW WE DO IT

We make it pretty.

Research can be boring, for some. We get that. So, even though we love data and think it’s the most exciting thing in the world, we make it beautiful for clients and respondents. ‘Visually pleasing’ is in our DNA and our online surveys display gorgeously on all connected devices.

HOW WE DO IT

We're trusted.

We’ve serviced over 110 clients and run hundreds of projects across diverse industries, including retail, financial and packaged goods. Our clients love us, and they adore our service levels and the results we bring them. (Which could explain why we’re also multi-award-winning.)
