Develop new products and services to meet diverse needs
Create new products and services through multiple types of social research that take advantage of a greater variety of market opportunities.
Leveraging fresh insights from and about people in diverse communities is a crucial step to creating better products and services.
At Versiti we are experienced at not only helping you get to these insights but also in facilitating co-creation of new ideas and innovations with your target audiences. We have a number of highly structured and collaborative processes that will get you working together with brand new audiences.

Macmillan Cancer Support knew that people living with cancer who are from minority groups (either from Black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT), or aged 65 and over) tend to have poorer experiences and outcomes in cancer services. However, they lacked evidence and insight to identify specific needs and shape future support.
Let's make this happen.
