Channel Harvest Research
Channel Harvest Research is a survey research partnership specializing in the critical relationships between insurance companies and their sales channels. This venture combines the experience of two veteran firms – Campbell Surveys and Aartrijk – to deliver unprecedented insight into insurance distribution.
Channel Harvest has helped many companies improve their most important customer relationships, marketing and sales efforts, and refinements in products and services. Over the past seven years, Channel Harvest has employed online surveys in business-to-business strategic research, extracting and analyzing attitudinal information within customer or constituent relationships. The benefits of online surveys over old, traditional methods are obvious: speed, flexibility, control, accuracy – and enormous cost savings.
Since its inception, Channel Harvest has increasingly devoted attention and resources to syndicated research – with multiple sponsors in a single vertical market — e.g., the insurance industry. Such studies are successful because the costs are shared among several sponsors, often competitors with each other. While the firm is a leader in quantitative research and the eminently actionable results its surveys produce, it also excels at qualitative research, including in-person and teleconference focus groups. Campbell Surveys partnered with Channel Harvest on its study "Key Success Factors in Agent/Carrier Relationships", among others.
Subscribers to the annual survey include many of the largest U.S. property and casualty insurance carriers.
