GMO Research Inc., a part of Japan’s GMO Internet Group, launched a new survey panel site, Z.com Research, in Singapore on 25th October 2022. With this project, GMO Research aims to extend its reach to one of Southeast Asia’s leading countries and to build a high-quality proprietary panel network in Singapore.
To date, GMO Research’s proprietary panel network—Z.com Research—is operational in China, India, Thailand, Myanmar and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), with its panel networks established for businesses across these countries.
Background information on the construction of
the proprietary panel in Singapore
Through collaborations with panel partners across various membership organisations, GMO Research has established a panel network1, known as ASIA Cloud Panel2. This has enabled the company to conduct internet research, targeting approximately 49 million3 consumers across 16 Asian countries and regions, including Singapore.
As one of Southeast Asia’s leading countries, with its status as an international commercial hub, Singapore is seeing an increasing need for consumer surveys. It is becoming increasingly important for growing Singaporean businesses to have access to detailed information about their customer base.
In this context, GMO Research’s unique perspective as a locally incorporated company in Singapore allows it to operate its proprietary panel effectively, enabling the company to provide detailed targeting distribution that meets clients’ needs.
GMO Research Inc. is also planning to launch an app service in December 2022, on iOS and Android, with the primary objective of reaching more consumers.
With more than 18 years of experience operating its survey panel sites in Japan and China, GMO Research will leverage this rich industry experience and build high-quality survey panels that are in tune with the Singaporean market. Through this service, GMO Research aims to further contribute to the expansion of the internet research industry in Singapore, and to gain a deeper understanding of Singaporean consumer insights, allowing the company to provide optimal survey services to its clients.
