We specialise in the home & family sector: how they shop; how they spend their time at home; what they like to do with their home; and how they spend their free time.
Our clients span well-known retailers, house builders, DIY chains, leisure brands, media brands and the education sector.
We bring a full range of insight capabilities, home and family sector expertise as well as a commercial mindset to create bespoke solutions that inform and inspire clients. This enables them to make confident, evidence-based decisions about how to improve and grow their brands.
Two core specialisms lie at the heart of our team: running brand health and advertising evaluation programmes. These approaches help our clients identify the levers of recommendation or preference, prioritise resource and investment in the purchase funnel and maximise the impact of their communications.

Simple and effective evaluations of new concepts or products to identify winners, or to establish if there is sufficient potential to move further down the innovation process
Using techniques such as a conjoint to help develop the optimum price points for products or services
Market sizing and opportunity

Applying chaid, cluster analysis and other segmentation approaches to identify key audiences for your brand to target

What Stagecoach said about us
We love working with Morar HPI for our brand tracker needs. They provide excellent advice and insights into how to achieve the best results that we want to achieve. Their debriefs are informed, but also provide wider environmental considerations for context which helps us plan our future business strategies.

We have worked with the team at Morar HPI for just over a year and during that time, their emphasis on actionable insight has really helped us to focus in on those areas where we can make a tangible difference to our customer journey.
Work & Latest thoughts
We've been a significant and trusted insight partner to Sainsbury’s for nearly 7 years, leading an extensive brand and ad tracking programme alongside a varied programme of ad hoc research projects.
We have helped Stagecoach to identify the drivers of purchase and match their communications accordingly and how to maximise the impact their large base of satisfied customers can have on driving positive word of mouth and advocacy.
We ran a customer and market programme for Moonpig to identify the barriers and drivers to cross-category buying. The insights helped shape the new brand positioning, less gimmicky and more fun, and gave clear steps on how to encourage consumers to move beyond cards into gifts and flowers.
We are Barratt’s chosen insight partner, working with them across a range of areas: channel strategy; path to purchase; brand health evaluation; and customer experience. Our work is supporting them to create homes that are built to last and encourage modern family life.
