InSites Consulting enlarges European footprint with German office
Consumer insights and collaboration agency InSites Consulting just announced the next episode in its international expansion with the opening of a Düsseldorf office. The company organically grew its business with nearly 30% last year, following increasing market demands for more collaborative and ongoing research.
Innovation is at the heart of InSites Consulting, being recognized as the most innovative agency in Europe and third most innovative agency worldwide according to the GreenBook Research Industry Trends (GRIT) report. Co-founder and CEO Kristof De Wulf declares it is the right timing for InSites Consulting to move into the German market: “We feel the German market is ready to embrace a new way of thinking when it comes to learning from consumers and we are confident our consumer-centric approach can make a positive difference in their market. Being recently rewarded with the German Online Research (GOR) Best Practice Award for our latest innovation, the Insight Activation Studio, is a sign that we are on the right track.”
InSites Consulting does not start from scratch and has already established important client relationships in the German-speaking regions. Christophe Vergult, Managing Partner and Business Development Manager, explains: “Over the past year, we have developed a strong portfolio of German-speaking clients in major industry sectors including consumer goods, travel and healthcare. Opening an office in Germany is the logical next step to strengthen our position in that market and to better serve our clients in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.”

What is the Insight Activation Studio?
The Insight Activation Studio is a mobile collaboration platform which connects and activates employees on the basis of insights. The Studio consists of Inspiration Walls and Inspiration Tiles. Each Wall tackles one business challenge and features Tiles (insights, consumer stories, trends, facts, figures etc.). Employees can add Tiles to the Walls in the form of observations and ideas by posting photos, videos and stories. They can also respond and contribute to the Tiles of their colleagues by adding comments and likes.
