Hall-tests are used for product, package and advertising testing. This is a fast method to collect target audience opinions on benefits and drawbacks of the product, its features compared to the competitors and elements that shall be improved.
Romir conducts the hall-tests in the proprietary Testing Laboratory in Moscow.
This method, similar to the hall-test, is just distinct in the fact that the tests are consucted in the respondent's home. This method is usually employed if the long-term tests (a few days) are required.
This method includes an experiment in order to evaluate (test) electronic product interfaces, web sites, private and professional software. Testing is conducted as a group discussion or an interview with special equipment that allows measuring the following:
- Efficiency (work and learning speed);
- Labour-output ratio (positive results frequency);
- Satisfaction (evaluation of tool use).
This method is often used in combination with the eye-tracking. Depending on aims and tasks of the research, the method can be either quantitative or qualitative.
Face-to-face interviews (CAPI)
Face-to-face interview method is based on the direct contact between an interviewer and a respondent. Personal contact allows to answer tough questions and to use the visuals (cards, photos, packings, logos, etc.).
Romir offers various kinds of personal interviews depending on the research objectives:
- in-home interviews;
- on-site interviews;
- street-intercept interviews;
- in-store interviews.
In face-to-face interviews CAPI (Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing) technology is used most of all, i.e. polls are held with the use of the tablets with a pre-programed questionnaire. Either an interviewer is using a computer to submit respondent's replies or the respondent independently completes the pre-programmed questionnaire.

- Consumption patterns;
- Patterns of navigation and purchasing in Point of Sale.
Monitoring can be conducted both with the help of the observers or with the use of software (installation of video cameras and automatic video coding).
Method and duration of the monitoring depend on the degree of survey target behavior changeability and environments limits.
