When I began my EMI career nearly 14 years ago, sampling options were simpler than they are now. As a Research Manager at EMI, I worked directly with our clients and sample suppliers, accessing the best sample for each project, and getting in and out of field. That part hasn’t changed– we still focus on providing quality and unbiased sample– but the options to obtain that sample are much more robust. Our clients face this same decision– with so many options, how does a researcher choose between directly managed and DIY when given the choice? With the introduction of CONNECTOR, EMI’s new proprietary sample procurement and management platform, we’ve given that a lot of thought.

While many providers will try to direct you to one option or another, EMI’s Research Management team is built to handle either of these options seamlessly, and we have adapted to apply API and DIY tool use across a wide range of our studies. If you find yourself needing something that fits the DIY space, we can offer access to CONNECTOR, allowing you to source and launch consumer, general population, target audiences quickly and efficiently.
