What are the benefits of FCX?
Customized Research Suite
FCX creates custom research solutions for every industry, company, and role. Whether you’re responsible for product development, shopper insights, customer experience, or marketing — there’s a solution for your organization on FCX.
Leading Insights Marketplace
We know researchers don’t have the time or luxury to compare countless different research tools. That’s why we made it easy to adopt new methods. All FCX partners go through a rigorous vetting process to ensure only the leading insights solutions make it into the marketplace.
Keeping Your Data Connected
We’re breaking down silos in a big way. Fuel Cycle is the first market research platform to combine partner and community data into one unified data layer. It’s time to put more of your insights to work for your business.
How does an integrated FCX study work?
Our fully integrated partners make it easy for you to rapidly field studies in Fuel Cycle. This enables you to use leading insight tools directly in your Community.
Community members are automatically directed to the study to participate and then redirected back to the Fuel Cycle activity upon completion. This provides one continuous and uninterrupted member experience.
Member participation with partner studies is automatically tracked by Fuel Cycle. This makes it easy to reward members for participation in communities that leverage incentives.
Integrations include Fuel Cycle profile points to help with analysis and segmentation.
You can view all of your studies directly within Fuel Cycle. Easily navigate directly to the partner website from Fuel Cycle to edit a study or view any associated reporting results and analysis. These links appear on the FCX Studies page under the Surveys section.
Where do I manage FCX studies within Fuel Cycle?
Studies can be managed directly in the Fuel Cycle platform. When you create a new FCX study in the partner's platform, it's automatically added to Fuel Cycle in the section called FCX Studies that appears in Surveys.
This makes it easy to see the available partner studies. You can easily navigate directly to the partner website from Fuel Cycle to Edit a study or view the Report results and analysis by using the links provided on the FCX Studies page.
How do I launch an FCX study?
Adding a partner study to a Fuel Cycle activity is simple and can be readily attached when creating a Fuel Cycle activity. Instructions are available in the Activity Creation section. Please note: not all FCX studies can be launched with the use of a Fuel Cycle activity.
