Our story starts in 2012. At that time we were a market research firm and regularly heard from clients how they need data all the time, but the cost and slow turnaround made it impossible. We knew what was coming too, thanks to our CEO’s involvement in Google’s new consumer survey product advisory board: internet-based audience panels. We started to throw around “what if’s”, which quickly turned into team brainstorming sessions, and that was that.
Fast forward 18 months and under the wing of Toronto’s tech community, and supported by MaRS innovation centre and the Canadian Technology Accelerator program, we took our survey tool public. It was then—and remains today—the only platform of its kind: an enterprise-level tool that turns out professional-quality insights on a dime.
Of course, since then we’ve expanded our services to include customer insight and employee engagement and additional items including services like sentiment analysis powered by machine learning and AI, social listening and data scraping. We’ve also been acquired, grown in staff and expanded into the US and Europe—all while holding on to our original purpose: to make quality data and analytics extremely accessible.
Our team philosophy
Expert-level highly accessible data for all
We believe every business should be able to access expert-quality data and insights because being informed is a “must have”, not a “nice to have”. As such, every part of ValidateIT, from the people we hire to help you, to the add-ons we offer, is meticulously designed for efficiency and effectiveness.
We’re people people
We care deeply about our customers’ and employees’ experiences. Expect fast replies when you contact us, highly competent resources, solid tools for an excellent user experience and can-do attitudes.
We never sacrifice quality data to save a few bucks. Some people have asked us if we’ll go with the cheaper audience panel or cut back on our analysis time, and our answer is “Never!” Customer loyalty earned through high customer satisfaction is where it’s at, and cutting corners won’t get us there. Plain and simple.
