    WhatUsersDo was set up in 2008 so anyone, in any size or type of organisation, can remotely gather user research from across the world with real people.

    Today our remote user experience testing platform is used by leading organisations such as Tesco, Virgin Atlantic, Money Advice Service and Standard Life to radically improve their understanding of peoples’ digital experiences and to drive conversions through insight (rather than just rely on hunches, instinct or opinion).
