Description

In just a few short years, InfoScout (a Market Track company) has grown into America's largest purchase panel, helping brands and retailers grow via next generation consumer insights. Through our portfolio of proprietary mobile apps that incentivize a representative sample of Americans to take pictures of their receipts, we capture nearly 1 out of every 500 shopping trips made across the country. These shoppers also complete in-the-moment surveys to more fully explain the ?why behind the buy.? With more than 100 million brick-and-mortar and ecommerce receipts captured annually, we've rapidly become a primary source of real-time, omnichannel behavioral insights for industry leaders across the board.

Employees flock to InfoScout from companies like Google, Yahoo, Red Bull, Procter & Gamble, Target, KraftHeinz, Kimberly-Clark -- as well as from every one of our competitors. We've even got some awards under our belt: #1 on San Francisco Business Times Fast 100, #84 on Inc. 500, #31 on Deloitte Technology Fast 500, and included on Greenbook's Grit50 list of most innovative companies in market research. And we're just getting started.
