Mobile Ethnography App



A New Way to Gather Insights

Qualitative Mobile
Ethnography App

Get closer to the real thoughts and feelings of your respondents while also helping reduce the need for extensive, costly and time consuming travel.

Audio Capture

Audio capture can contain a great deal of sentiment information in your respondent’s feedback – from their tone of voice to the way they phrase their concerns and excitement.

Photo Capture

Photo capture lets your respondents show you details, memories, emotions, and meanings. Their captured photos can “speak” for respondents when words cannot be found.

Video Capture

Gather ‘naturally occurring’ video data from your respondents. Let respondents take you through their activity detailing their environment, gaze, expression, body posture, gestures, and more!

Text Responses

Collect open-ended text information from your respondents. Text responses are a great way to let respondents submit additional commentary to their uploaded photos and videos.

Create Your Activities

You decide what information you want to collect from your respondents and in what format. You can choose to make your activities one-time or recurring.

Add Your Respondents

Respondents will receive an email invite containing research details, app download instructions, and their credentials. Upon log in, respondents will see all activities available to them.

No Data Boundaries

Civicom ThoughtLight™ can be accessed in locations where there is no data connectivity. Offline accessibility lets you gather insights from locations where most researcher platforms are not able to reach.

Location Capture

Capture your respondents’ GEO location at the time the activity take place. A perfect way to know if they were really there!

Going Beyond

Use ThoughtLight as part of a bigger research study by pairing it with Chatterbox®, our Online Research Community platform and CyberFacility®, our IDIs and Focus Group solution.

It’s Easy

We manage the respondents and the incoming data for you. We can work with your panelists and respondents or we can recruit for you.
