Delvinia, a global research technology and data collection company, has announced a partnership with Fuel Cycle. As part of the partnership Fuel Cycle will offer access to CRIS by Delvinia, and Delvinia will offer Live by Fuel Cycle, to its customers. CRIS uses AI to conduct one-to-one chat-based interviews at scale, and complements Live, a virtual focus group and interview tool ideal for gathering in-depth qualitative insights. Users of both platforms will now be able to access both tools, creating a more robust virtual qualitative research experience.

“Partnering with Fuel Cycle in this way is another step towards our vision of becoming the operating system of market research,” says Steve Mast, President and Chief Innovation Officer at Delvinia. “There are so many great research technologies out there, and we want to make it easier for researchers to access them.”

“We’re excited to offer CRIS to our global customers in the FCX Marketplace,” said Rick Kelly, Chief Product Officer at Fuel Cycle, “CRIS’ innovative AI engine is a user-friendly compliment to the vast amounts of qualitative and quantitative data collected through Fuel Cycle, helping brands translate insights to action.”

Further demonstrating the value of CRIS by Delvinia, it was recently named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Technical Innovation of the Year category in the 18th Annual International Business Awards®.  Judges noted the innovative use of a chatbot and Natural Language Processing as well as the commitment to data security demonstrated by CRIS as outstanding attributes.

This is the fourth international award CRIS by Delvinia has received in the past year, emphasizing yet again what a powerful and innovative tool it is for researchers looking to conduct qualitative research quickly and at scale.
