ShapeLog consulted with the The SearchLite to explore the viability of its product in the Physical Therapy industry. Scott and Prianca did a great job facilitating interviews with subject matter experts relevant to this field. With their help we realized within a relatively short timeframe that we needed to reassess our target customer segment for our product to be successful. We look forward to using their services again in the near future and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to validate their target market for their product/ services.
