Revenues skyrocket for third consecutive year – fastest growing
digital insights platform

WILTON, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Toluna,
the leading digital marketing research and technology business, has
announced the approval of a $10 million investment in the company’s
fast-growing, and widely-adopted QuickSurveys
product.

QuickSurveys is an on-demand, digital consumer insights platform – fully
integrated with Toluna’s global community of 9 million consumers.
QuickSurvey’s revenue is set to more than double in 2015 for the third
consecutive year. Clients include British Airways, Playtex, Beiersdorf,
and the list goes on.

In addition to a strong web-based DIY business, QuickSurveys is a
streamlined survey research infrastructure, which provides on-demand
survey creation and real-time targeting and respondent access to global
measurement companies including Nielsen and dunnhumby.

The investment in QuickSurveys will be used to fuel further growth by
appointing key staff, developing enhancements to market research
automation tools, and increasing marketing spend.

“At Toluna we are focused on developing methods to streamline the
creation of meaningful insight and deliver them in real-time. Toluna.com
is the world’s largest social voting community and via QuickSurveys we
can deliver the opinions of millions of community members on-demand 24
hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year” commented Frederic
Petit, CEO, Toluna.

addition to being real-time, the QuickSurveys reporting and analysis
engine is second-to-none, which is why many of the world’s biggest
businesses turn to us for their market insights as they receive

the launch of a groundbreaking Toluna.com Mobile App.
