Reliable Information to Drive Decisions

Whether you're embarking on an exploratory study to understand a problem or generative research to dive deeper in search of untapped opportunities, getting high-quality data is critical.

Our team of experienced researchers and data scientists go beyond data collection to provide actionable recommendations.

You get the benefits of AI-powered efficiency paired with custom survey design, methodology rigor, and high-touch guidance focused on your specific business needs. Our blend of AI enhancements and human strategic insight delivers far greater relevance than any tool alone.

Treating Your Data as an Asset

As data professionals, we know that the information you’ve already collected about your business, market, customers, and sales has value — even if you don’t know what to do with it. While we collect data through surveys and other tools, we also work with clients to understand the data they already have.

SMS can help your organization figure out what data you have and where it's located, analyze it to make it actionable, and protect it so it remains private, secure, and accessible.

Why SMS?

Our clients choose us because they don’t want snap judgments or quick fixes. We’re known for delivering data that are verifiable and statistically sound, following best practices for data integrity, security, and privacy. And as an independent, locally owned and kama‘aina-led firm, we know how to talk to Hawai‘i residents and build trust so that people give us their honest opinions.
