“Nielsen has used Qual Quarter as a focus group viewing facility and also as a facility to conduct central venues.
Qual Quarter has remained the preferred qualitative venue for Nielsen since 2008.
What sets this venue apart from others is the personal attention to detail and high levels of service offered. All requests, no matter how challenging, are handled professionally and quickly. This type of flexibility ensures that Qual Quarter is well equipped and willing to handle even the most daunting of last minute requests.
Another benefit is that all services are provided under one roof. Recruitment, moderating, transcribing and translating are all available from one contact point. This makes project management smoother and more efficient, allowing the executive more time for client liaison and other functions.
To date, dealing with Qual Quarter has always been a pleasure, from their high caliber of respondents, to their fresh and punctual catering. I look forward to many more qualitative adventures with them..”

Shona Beyers Director at Ignite Research
I have enjoyed working with Julie Rathbone and her team at Qual Quarter for a number of years. As a business school academic, I have relied on Julie and the team’s high levels of professionalism, efficient operations, flexible approaches, and quality delivery.
Qual Quarter has consistently provided accurate and timely transcription services for multiple research projects I have been involved in. The organisation has also supported our research data gathering activities with multi-racial trained interviewers who were skilled at negotiating respondent access for quality data.
I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Julie and her team.
