Ruby Cha Cha went above and beyond for our research project. We were restricted by a very tight timeframe – but the project was completed on time and the results were more than we could have asked for. We were able to gain valuable insights into our members and their needs and wants. We have no hesitation in recommending Ruby Cha Cha to anyone and will definitely use them again.
We had a tight time frame and you delivered, and the results are so powerful and will go a long way to helping us form our future endeavours.
From a design company’s perspective, Ruby Cha Cha’s report is a refreshingly clear and ‘visual’ document. Over the years I’ve seen lots of good research reports that are strong on intellectual rigour and insights but short on the sort of reference to help everyone share the same interpretation of the results. The visual approach in this report is a great benchmark setting and team alignment way to present the results. And speaking from a design perspective, makes interpreting how the results might influence the way the brand looks, feels and behaves, much easier.
Ruby Cha Cha conducted research with our members in order to help us develop strategic solutions to drive our union into the future. The team used innovative techniques to help us truly understand our members and the way they view their profession and our organisation. Ruby Cha Cha’s research identified some important opportunities for us to improve our positioning and we are now taking some important and informed next steps to ensure we are well placed to continue to represent our members well into the future.

Ruby Cha Cha has enabled us to reach and inform residents who rarely have a voice in decision making … Ruby has explored the challenges posed by rapid growth and constrained budgets and the implications that these realties ultimately have on the customer experience. The Community Stakeholder work was instrumental in better decision making for the council. Their ability to connect with audiences from residents, through to businesses, senior stakeholders and the Councillors was extraordinary.
The Ruby team worked in partnership with the mycar marketing and leadership team to undertake a large qualitative and quantitative segmentation and customer satisfaction study in the middle of the pandemic, which played an integral role in the relaunch of the mycar brand and its overall strategic direction. Ruby Cha Cha were able to pivot quickly, think creatively and apply skill and clever thinking to ensure mycar got the strategic insights that would drive effective decision making. We now view the segmentation as a living, breathing document referred to everyday at mycar.
