What Makes VGM Different
Operation 7 days/week with alternating internal daytime and nighttime teams enables us to deliver to results faster and to provide you with superior service. Your dedicated project manager, moderator, and team of analysts will customize the research to your specific needs, take ownership of the project from greenlight to final deliverable, and provide the highest level of support every day, night, weekend, and holiday.
Unparalleled Recruiting Capabilities
Superior quality, higher accuracy, and faster turnaround time on recruiting. We are one of the only full-service vendors that handles recruiting internally rather than outsourcing to third-party subcontractors. Respondents undergo a rigorous five-step screening process: database registration, email screening, phone screening, Google/LinkedIn/Facebook check, and in-person re-screening.
Creators of Significant Live Sample (SLS) Methodology & Expansive Normative Database
SLS is a hybrid quant/qual methodology that guarantees the security of confidential assets while still providing statistically significant results. We have aggregated consistent data points across thousands of studies to create the largest normative database of video game playtest scores in the industry, as well as an extensive database of non-playtest online survey scores.
