A South African payment platform wanted to talk to consumers in the UK who regularly send remittances to Africa and South Asia about the features that they expect and need from cash remittance platforms, as well as any frustrations they might face while using existing platforms.
We used our extensive panel to recruit over 50 well-suited candidates with connections to ten different African and Asian countries and screened in a final 12 participants using an online questionnaire created in house. As an extra quality check, we made follow-up phone calls to the respondents to establish their fluency in English and discuss their use of online remittance platforms. We then encouraged the 12 participants to participate actively in the online community which was held over a number of days via WhatsApp.
I contacted FieldworkHub with a last-minute research request. I thought it would be tricky to pull off, but Philip and the team made it so easy. It was a pleasure to work with people who were clearly experts at what they do. Not only did they turn the whole project around super quickly, but they were responsive, helpful and gave very thoughtful suggestions when I asked for advice. The process was smooth and easy from the start.
