Self-Service Multi Client Study

Self-service has been placed in an extremely vulnerable position due to the coronavirus pandemic. Get the consumer and operator perspectives on health and safety precautions, equipment preferences and long-lasting impacts.

Self-Service Multi Client Study

Self-service was once a boon for some businesses but now faces vulnerability due to the coronavirus pandemic. With safety and health concerns more top of mind and extreme than ever before, businesses without contactless models will be hit harder.

Understand the risks and prepare for the future by sponsoring the Self-Service Outlook Multi Client Study. Our shared-interest model allows sponsors to shape the study, and the findings will support both operators and suppliers in understanding the challenges and opportunities in the self-service segment.
