Denver, CO (February 6, 2012) – iModerate Research Technologies, a leading qualitative research firm, recently implemented ThoughtPath™; a new holistic approach to bring more relevance and honesty to their client’s qualitative research.

ThoughtPath revolves around three Cognitive Theories – Identity Theory, Perception Theory and Phenomenology. These theories allow iModerate’s qualitative experts to better understand consumers’ inherent thought processes and how they make decisions. Depending on the research question, iModerate’s qualitative team blends the optimal combination of ThoughtPath’s three theories to customize an approach. Utilized to inform the company’s online, one-on-one qualitative conversations, ThoughtPath gives iModerate’s moderators the framework to decipher how consumers see themselves, what they really notice and the experiences that shape them.

“We are thrilled about ThoughtPath and the insights that it bears,” said Carl Rossow, iModerate’s CEO. “When you can unilaterally improve what you do for your clients, it’s a wonderful thing, and ThoughtPath is helping us do just that. It gives us the ability to ask more meaningful questions in a more efficient manner and carry out a more organic qualitative conversation.”

ThoughtPath was developed by iModerate’s senior leadership team and an outside consultant over a period of 12 months. The new approach influences everything iModerate does, from kick-off calls to the qualitative conversations to the deliverables. It is being used across all audiences and project types and is completely customized based on each client’s research objectives.

The results we received from the iModerate one-on-one, in-depth conversations were much more enlightening than what we typically garner from open-ended verbatim responses. The live moderator offers us the ability and flexibility to probe deeper on certain points, enabling us to get stronger, less vague information. That unique capability has proved extremely valuable to us, and has made this IM-based platform an integral part of our research toolbox.
