Test products from time to time

Being a tester at Techni’Sens means above all answering questionnaires and being selected to test products.

As our studies are tailor-made, you will only be asked to test products that correspond to you, whether in terms of your consumption habits or physical characteristics (hair type, skin type, etc.).

Being compensated for giving your opinion

Have you always wanted to discover new products exclusively or test new recipes before anyone else?

By becoming a Techni’ Sens tester, not only will you discover new products, but you will also be compensated after each test: gift certificate or product offered.

At Techni’Sens, we do our utmost to help our customers create and market products that are as close as possible to your expectations and needs.

Being a tester means taking part in the analysis by giving us your opinion on different categories of products (beverages, hygiene and cosmetics products, textiles or even products for your pets).

We can also ask you questions about the visual, the taste or the use of the product. Your opinion will allow us to make appropriate recommendations to our clients.

Home test: you receive the products directly at home (or you can pick them up at one of our institutes, if you live nearby). Afterwards, nothing could be easier, you will have to follow the protocol that will be provided in your package and answer the questionnaires sent by email on the scheduled dates.

What is the point of becoming a tester?

Being a tester at Techni’Sens means taking part in the development process of many products by simply giving your opinion! We can also ask you about the visual, the taste or the use of these products.

Our main objective is to help our clients create and market products that meet your expectations and needs. To do so, we will analyze all your answers from the questionnaires in order to make concrete recommendations to our clients.

Moreover, it allows you to discover exclusive products before they are put on the market and to be rewarded (gift card or free product) after each test.

Why am I rarely or never asked to do anything?

You might be called to do more or less tests depending on the month. Don’t panic, it’s perfectly normal.

The reasons for non-selection can be various: either the product to be tested does not correspond to your profile, or you correspond to the product but the quota of participants was reached before we contacted you.

Selection for a test depends on many criteria. If only one is missing, you might not be selected. Nevertheless, each test is different. In the meantime, we invite you to wait a little.

It is also possible that our emails are in your spam folder. If this is the case, we advise you to add Techni’Sens to the list of your approved senders. If the problem persists, please contact us or give us a different email address.

Is my personal information confidential?

Techni’Sens’ sole purpose is to carry out marketing studies. Your data will never be used for commercial purposes.

Your answers via the questionnaires you complete are treated in the strictest confidence. They will not be transmitted to third parties under any circumstances.

In accordance with the French Data Protection Act of January 6, 1978, you have the right to access, modify and rectify your personal data.

Can anyone become a tester?

Everyone can participate in the tests offered by Techni’Sens: adults, teenagers and children.

Even your pets can be asked to test new products! Don’t forget to mention them in your profile survey.

For teen/child tests, as long as they are minors, there is no need to create a personal account for them. If you mentioned them in your profile survey, they are part of our panel. Before each participation, we will always ask for a signed consent from parents or legal guardians.

How does the selection process work?

First of all, as soon as your profile matches the product to be tested, we send you a pre-selection questionnaire. You can also find the link to the questionnaire in your Tester’s area. Each time you have a few hours to several days to respond.

Then, if you match the profile defined by our study, a member of our team will can you and explain the test process: the product, the duration and the compensation method (gift certificate or product offered).

However, if you are not selected, you will not be notified.

Your participation is free, you are in no way required to answer all the questionnaires we send you. However, if your account has been inactive for more than 2 years, we might delete it. Don’t panic, you will be warned beforehand.

What types of tests do you offer?

We offer tests at home and tests at one of our two institutes in La Rochelle and Bordeaux-Mérignac. We also offer discussion groups (also called “focus groups”), individual interviews (by videoconference or at the institute) as well as sessions with our Expert Panel, a group of panelists trained in sensory analysis techniques.

You will be asked to test different categories of products: sweet and/or savoury food, drinks, cosmetics, hygiene, etc. Your pets (dogs and cats) will also be able to participate and test treats or kibbles.

It is important to note that all the products tested are already or will soon be commercialized. Our studies come after the microbiological analyses and tolerance tests. Also, you can consume/use the products without fear for your health or safety.

Are the tests paid for?

You are rewarded after each test: you receive either a gift card (minimum amount of 8€) or a free product.

Participants in the institute tests receive a paper gift card, while home testers receive a dematerialized gift card. They can be used in a multitude of stores from different universes: food, culture, sports, beauty, landscaping, gardening, etc.

For more information on the use of your gift cards, please contact us

Can I know the brand of the product I just tested?

Unfortunately no, we are not in a commercial approach towards our consumer panel. We are also bound by confidentiality to our clients.

That’s why most products are anonymized.
