The retail landscape in Canada is rapidly evolving and so are the wants and needs of Canadian shoppers. Expanding e-commerce acceptance in a wide range of categories and exciting new services such as click-and-collect are creating a brave new omni-channel world.
Understanding how shoppers will react to new initiatives is critical as the costs are high and margins are relatively low in retail. Making a mistake can be disastrous.
Field Agent gives you access to our panel of over 120,000 real Canadian shoppers, who are ready to respond to your questions anytime, anywhere. Armed with our smartphone app, these “Agents” can respond to surveys at-home, in-store or anywhere along the path to purchase.
Retailers have used Field Agent to explore shopper attitudes on a wide range of topics including loyalty programs, packaging design, private label product concepts and store design.
Field Agent has a full suite of research capabilities, so we can manage projects both big and small all while keeping you well within your budget.
Before you roll out that new retail design to your whole chain, Field Agent can provide in-the-moment insights from shoppers interacting with pilot stores to ensure that the shopper embraces the concept and the change will drive sales.

Quick, which shopping season trails only the holidays in terms of gross consumer spending?
That’s right. Back to school. The second biggest selling and marketing event of the year.
A February 2020 Field Agent survey of 1,646 U.S. adults found that 64% of respondents have used Online Grocery Pickup at some point in the past. Of these respondents (n = 1,061), 47% said they currently use OGP at least once a month on average.
Clearly, for many, OGP is now simply the way they shop.
