NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Stagwell (NASDAQ: STGW) Marketing Cloud today announced that The Harris Poll and Maru are working together to create a suite of integrated, AI-based research products that will go to market under the newly formed “Harris Quest.” The new unified brand will deliver a full suite of martech research offerings, inclusive of AI-enabled self-service polling and other “instant information” SaaS solutions.

At launch, Harris Quest’s product portfolio will include:

  • QuestBrand: Always-on, real-time brand tracking
  • QuestDIY: Self-service quantitative surveys
  • QuestPRO: Professional-grade survey and insights tools
  • QuestCX: Customer experience management solutions

Harris Quest will eventually be fully interoperable with other Stagwell Marketing Cloud software and data tools for modern marketing teams.

“Stagwell Marketing Cloud is taking millions of data points from the world’s most reliable polling organization and infusing it with a fully scalable software platform,” said Mark Penn, Chairman and CEO. “This combination will truly unleash ‘research-as-a-service’ for the modern marketer.”
