Why people choose dscout over Lookback

Your users or ours

Our participants are hand-picked and ready to go. No need to wait for people to come to you or pay for third-party panels. Going beyond your own users leads to more impactful research.

Research flexibility

Don’t settle for surface-level insights with a limited tool. Design the studies you need spanning foundational, generative, and evaluative methods tailored to your objectives.

Analysis made easy

Transcriptions are great, but analyzing hours and hours of them can be a pain. Whether you have ample timeline or tight deadlines, dscout makes it easy to identify trends and extract actionable insights.

Ease of use

Participants are the fuel to your research. And poor usability from your research tool can push them away before they even start testing your usability. dscout makes it easier for participants to share their thoughts.
