Popular retailer Abercrombie & Fitch Co. is focused on keeping their customers at the center of everything they do – and to help achieve that goal, the company’s Global Customer Insights team utilizes Fuel Cycle’s insight community to garner additional insights into customers’ mindsets, behaviors, and preferences.

Their most impactful projects involve a combination of primary survey data from their community and in-person focus groups or immersions. But when the  pandemic struck in early 2020, the organization needed a new course of action to reach customers face-to-face, virtually.
