New community features; improved respondent engagement

In response to market trends, Globalpark has added new community features that allow organizations to interact and engage with customers more effectively.

To give users increased confidence in the accuracy of their data, a number of quality assurance features have been added, including: automated duplicates checking, panel tracking to ensure ISO compliance, and on-demand integration with RelevantID, the market leader in digital watermarking and fingerprinting techniques, to ensure your respondents are who they say they are.

Improved efficiency and scalability
