Survey Panel

Acentric surveys are run on Acentric's own panel and supplemented with other panels and data collection methods. Acentric is a pioneer in the online-panel space, having established the SurveyCentric panel in 2010 and SurveyOasis in 2019.

Acentric's alliance with CINT Sweden, extends Acentric’s reach globally, meaning seamless international surveys are possible, all managed via one system. Our system is fully interoperable with CINT systems. This means adherence to  global best practice and direct access to CINT’s panel of over 6 million globally.
