To unlock profit, the client needed to understand feature prioritization and pricing in niche markets

A top 3 management consultancy needed insights to help a freight software company stay at the top of their industry. With a new SaaS platform in development, the end client wanted to determine the features most valued by potential users and establish competitive pricing. They turned to NewtonX to target heads of inspection and maintenance DMs in heavy industries to shape their approach. 


NewtonX survey

NewtonX recruited and surveyed 40 facility inspection DMs across 5 geographies

By leveraging our open network of 1.1B professionals, we custom recruited 40 asset integrity inspection and maintenance DMs of large industrial facilities. Respondents spanned across the US, Europe, Middle East, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Over the course of 3 weeks, we surveyed professionals who were responsible for extending the life of their assets for as long as possible without jeopardizing employee safety.

We analyzed and packaged the findings into a comprehensive report for the consultant, complete with analyses, charts, and recommendations. To determine feature prioritization and pricing optimization, we utilized two different methodologies: MaxDiff Analysis and Van Westendorp Pricing.
