“Working with dscout is just much better than UserTesting. Creating the mission was very easy and I like the interface. Plus, the scouts are really good.”

“Great community of panel participants. Everyone is always articulate, creative, and engaged. Additionally, we can get research studies recruited, launched and fielded quickly on the platform, giving us the insight needed to work at the fast speeds clients have come to expect.
