Sauti was enlisted to carry out a feasibility study for the construction of a new cross-border market in Kenya. The aim of the study was to identify the needs of different stakeholders to inform the design, construction and operations of the market. With the use of Sauti’s research consulting services, as well as the Sauti Collect data collection tool, we were able to provide a scalable and comprehensive data collection solution to identify the varying needs of the market stakeholders.
We employ user interaction data from Sauti’s market and trade information platforms to analyze how CBTs prioritize different types of business information and the demographic effects on business information needs.
