TNS Launches New Global Positioning – DISCOVER


Discover Builds On Culture Of Innovation

TNS, the world’s largest custom research agency, has launched a new global positioning - DISCOVER. DISCOVER reflects TNS’s continued commitment to leading the way in research into new frontiers, making discoveries that help clients to develop opportunities in a changing world.

This positioning will be underpinned by extensive research into new areas including the digital world and emerging markets, as well as pioneering innovative research techniques. The banner ‘DISCOVER’ emphasises TNS’s strengths and global position as a forward looking business, with strong market sector expertise and a product offering that spans the entire consumer lifecycle.

Commenting on the re-positioning, Matthew Froggatt, Chief Development Officer said, “This is about acknowledging that the world, and our clients’ needs, have changed dramatically - yet we proudly remain the ‘go to’ research company for discovering and exploring new territories, new opportunities and new media for our clients.”

“We will continue to be at the forefront of the research industry and facilitate our clients’ new discoveries, providing them with pioneering people, tools and insight that will deliver real commercial results and growth.” DISCOVER can be seen in action through TNS’s exploration of the digital revolution that is transforming the way we live. The company’s 2010 Digital Life study ( is the largest and most comprehensive study ever of the global digital consumer, covering 90% of the world’s online population. It is re-shaping our understanding of how the world lives online. To date there have been over 150,000 visitors to the study’s website and extensive press and social media coverage.

Froggatt concludes: “A key part of the DISCOVER positioning is to build on our existing culture of innovation, and foster an even more pioneering culture and energy among our research teams. Through DISCOVER, TNS will be more focussed on being the vanguard of research and pioneering new research capabilities that bring value to clients.”

The new positioning will be effective from 1 January 2011. The company’s distinctive and well recognised logo and corporate identity will not change. For further information click here.
