Project examples

Ad hoc Research is usually a single piece of research rather than part of a continuous process. It is designed for a specific purpose and adjusted to the individual needs of the client. In many cases, it is conducted when existing information is deemed to be insufficient. Our team collects and analyzes relevant data in a timely fashion and delivers it to our clients as PowerPoint presentation, Excel-file or Word document. The comprehensive experience Frenus gained through the successful completion of numerous Ad hoc research projects guarantees high-quality research results collected with the help of proven best practices and fast delivery of required information.
