Who We Are

One of the world’s largest retailers was considering reinstituting an advertising symbol it used many years ago, but were concerned how it would impact its reputation. ABX collected and tested ads with this symbol from a decade ago. Once results were put into context with the competitive set, they showed the symbol would favorably impact the client’s advertising.

The ABX team has been performing global research through the internet for over 15 years, completing over 8 million interviews in more than 30 countries. The senior team has more than 100 years of combined experience covering all aspects of research, sampling, operations, analysis and software development.

The team has built the ABX research system, which is based on patent-pending visual methodology that produces more accurate survey results in 40% less time. The solution has a highly repeatable global methodology identical for use in all parts of the world.

Our team has also had 25+ years testing TV pilots and managing the longest-running syndicated TV tracker. ABX Chairman J. J. Klein has also consulted with GfK, IPSOS, Nielsen and other competitors on designing their online survey capabilities. ABX serves as a research partner to Association of National Advertisers and the Alliance for Family Entertainment.
