Concept Testing

Our Approach

At Applied Marketing Science (AMS) we know that real insight comes from understanding customers. Our approach to concept testing puts the customer at the center and is both systematic and efficient. AMS partners with you to answer the important questions that enable you to optimize your concepts or prototypes before launch, before you’ve invested too much time and money on the product and before it’s too late. Drawing on the principles of design thinking, Voice of the Customer and more than 30 years of real-world experience in innovation, AMS helps you improve your concepts and prototypes prior to launch. This process saves you time and money by putting you on the path to launch more successful products, services, and customer experiences.
