Omnichannel shop-along

On a phone. In a store. At home. Back again. Shopping today is messy. The nuance of this journey is hard to capture in an interview. With dscout, you can see the real journey people go on to buy your product or service, as they take it.

In-store innovation audit

You’ve spent millions making a new product or service. Do people actually see it when they go shopping? Send scouts on a mission and have them share what catches their eye in a product or category.
