Foresight Factory's new mining tool AYDA™ is a game changer. It delivers depth insights on my many consumer audiences at the touch of a button. It also gives me the ability to refine constantly to allow me to target on a much more personalised level.

Chris Combemale, Group CEO, Direct Marketing Association

Using Foresight Factory's Consumer Demand Modelling technique gave us a real understanding of our positioning for our innovation concept. The real stand out for us was the creation of a bespoke questionnaire that pulled behavioral and attitudinal nuances. This allowed us to craft a detailed and complex story for the innovation.
