Software-based data collection ensures repeatability

Our software can scan thousands of sites and hundreds of thousands of pages and links accumulating data elements for further analysis.

We assess digital estates and their websites across three broad categories, platform, communication and audience: addressing technological fit, messaging and the ability to meet user needs.

A structured methodology increases reliability

We use a 15-dimension, 45-metric evaluation framework to ensure analysis is consistent over time and across estates. The framework and its associated data provides the foundation for a wide range of cross-organization benchmarking.

We summarize our analysis as a single measure: eQ (effectiveness Quotient).

Careful analysis yields actionable insights

Our assessments are principally quantitative, but strictly numerical measures aren’t sufficient.

So, we support our assessments with expert judgement, particularly when evaluating the degree to which websites address audience information needs and task completion.
