ResearchVibes features a comprehensive view of dozens of top research news feeds and blogs, helping market researchers monitor all the latest news and reports in real-time, in one place, instead of having to manually surf and search the entire Web. Moreover, ResearchVibes also features the most relevant Twitter conversations and all the best social media and productivity tools to help market researchers with their everyday workload. ResearchVibes also puts all the most important industry resources at your fingertips, including industry associations, conferences and events, and online professional networks.
ResearchVibes is powered by Netvibes Premium Dashboards and each user can completely personalize their very own ResearchVibes dashboard to better monitor and analyze specific industries, companies, clients or personal interests. Thanks to Netvibes’ award-winning interface, it’s easy and intuitive to quickly change layouts or add more news, blogs or tools in just a couple of clicks. With ResearchVibes, users can pick and choose from more than 190,000 widgets (tools) available in the Netvibes Ecosystem, including many services for professional media monitoring and analysis.
“Since the market research community is so diverse, we knew a one-size fits all approach simply wouldn’t work. That’s why ResearchVibes is powered by Netvibes Premium Dashboards, because it gives each individual user the ability to easily customize their own dashboard to match their unique interests and needs simply by adding, deleting, and moving the tools and content around–just like building blocks,” said Lukas Pospichal, Managing Director, GreenBook.
