What We Do

Illumina delivers custom research, analysis, and consulting services that help achieve business success. We work with decision-makers and research leaders who want to:

  • Build and track brands and corporate reputations
  • Strengthen customer satisfaction and loyalty
  • Improve communications
  • Develop products, services, and markets

What We Believe

A Better Way

We believe that the Illumina Way can truly change your business for the better. Traditional approaches to market research produce mediocre results. We know there’s a better way to exceptional, and we get there every day.

Digging Deep

Good research is more than simply questions asked and answered. We analyze, explore relationships, and dig deep enough to obtain meaningful insights that can be turned into actions. Research sitting on a shelf is often untapped potential waiting to be realized.

Collaborate & Engage

Collaboration uncovers insights that have the power to create competitive advantage. From start to finish, we bring business decision-makers and researchers together to foster engagement in ways that are meaningful, process-oriented, and time-efficient.

Affect Change

Research is your road map to results, and it can change the way you do business. With insights in hand, we work with you to develop solution-based actions that respond to your goals and achieve success.

Measuring Success

Helping businesses solve problems and achieve their goals is our first and only priority. We are proud when your business succeeds. We’re also proud when we:

  • Solve complex, messy and important research challenges
  • Uncover business opportunities in research that’s “sitting on the shelf”
  • Collaborate with each other and our clients to turn research into “aha” moments
  • Facilitate workshops that align and engage stakeholders
  • Visualize research insights in compelling ways that really resonate
  • Turn volumes of data into key stories, new insights and recommendations
  • Work with clients to identify actions that improve performance
  • Use the most effective research and data collection methods for each assignment
  • Dig deep enough to uncover meaningful gems in data
  • Deliver peace of mind
