We are changing the way the world
collects business information and insights
We do this by crowdsourcing data via smart devices from your customers.
We've made it our mission to provide a link from people sitting in a workplace to useful information anywhere in the world. Our Clients are businesses or individuals that need information. Anyone with a credit card can sign up as a client. We're specifically built to partner with businesses, and have made strategic decisions to innovate where it's helpful to you.
We enable every day people utilizing the latest in mobile technology to deliver relevant, nearly instant business information. We call these amazing people Agents. We're constantly impressed with the acumen of our Agents whose local knowledge is invaluable. We have thousands of Agents that provide nationwide coverage for collecting real world intelligence. If you're interested in being an Agent you can download the Field Agent app.
You no longer have to fight crowds to be a part of the Black Friday action. Field Agent’s Black Friday Scoreboard puts you right in the middle of it all, with a live photo feed from stores and streaming results of which retailers are winning shoppers.

Retail oversights come in many forms, but all of them are costly. Suppliers often rely on Mobile Audits to monitor and optimize their in-store executions. Download the eBook below for an up-close look at mobile audits.

What types of information can I collect?
Photos do say 1,000 words but what we like to say is that photos can capture 1,000 pieces of data. We use photos to verify information, capture in store experience and understand product usage.
Field Agent uses classic data collection methodologies while incorporating technology, such as barcode scanning, to ensure quality data for large scale projects.
Similar to photos, video allows you to gather data but video also allows you to capture consumer sentiment and quotes in a way that truly tells a story.
Field Agent can perform surveys and collect opinions from anywhere. We support classic research specific question types such as Likert scale, multiple choice, multiple select, ranking, five-star rating, free form, etc.
Audio is primarily used for gathering opinion data and feedback. We have also seen cases where audio has been effective in capturing large amounts of data which is transcribed on the back-end.
While similar to opinions, we can obtain feedback differently because we can ask your core customer (based upon demographics) to provide feedback on your product or service at the Point of Influence™.
Quality: How can I trust the data?
As business people and researchers, we understand the value of privacy, security and reliable information. We rigorously evaluate the data points we receive to ensure your data is accurate. Field Agent can offer customized quality control when needed.
We are members of ESOMAR and MMRA and follow their guidelines and best practices:
If there is cellular coverage available, Field Agent® can deliver your audit and research needs.
