what makes iwd different

We are pioneers

The opportunity to optimize the realization and quality of face to face market research projects with the help of new smartphone technology was recognized in 2003 by the IWD. During a time in which smartphones and apps were not popular, IWD used the first blackberries with own software to do huge face to face projects. Since then the IWD market research GmbH is one of the pioneers in mobile research.
