SHELTON, Conn., Jan. 11, 2016 – SSI has teamed up with SessionM to announce a new panel application called mTHOUGHTS. Members of SSI’s mTHOUGHTS program will earn SessionM’s loyalty currency, mPLUS Rewards, by participating in surveys and location-based activities like retail store audits. The app works on Android™ and iOS™ phones and tablets.

mTHOUGHTS adds yet another component to the most comprehensive mobile research solution suite available. SSI’s Mobile Solution combines a robust mobile panel with a geo-enabled data collection app and innovative mobile-optimized survey programming.

As a market leader in mobile-first loyalty and engagement solutions, SessionM provides research companies with access to qualified subsets of 12 million registered consumers.

This mobile-first approach generates more than 275,000 responses each day, giving brands quick, actionable feedback and the ability to target respondents for additional insights or to share relevant messaging.
