Enhance Your Concept Testing Process

The Right Direction, Right Away

The MESH01 platform and integrated product tester community help you launch a valuable concept testing process that points your product in the right direction based on survey-generated feedback from your target customers.

The Process of Product Development Begins with Concept Testing

In product development and merchandising, the success of a product is critically linked to the concept testing process, when you’re able to validate your market opportunity, inform product definition and mitigate the risk of a failed product launch.

Going to market with an untested product means it hasn’t been validated by your target audience – and you could be missing a market opportunity that concept testing would have identified. Get validation from testers who fit your target market with concept testing on the MESH01 platform.

This step is an important complement to concept testing as it provides a layer of directional validation for your product direction.

  • Combine early product market research with your concept testing results for a complete picture of your product opportunity.
