Our Story

dataSpring has a proud history that started in 2009, when the company, formerly named Research Panel Asia (RPA), started offering Japanese panels to global markets. It is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan and offers reliable solutions for market researchers, including online and mobile samples in Asia, full-service market research, and 24/7 data collection operations.

In 2020, under the new partnership with INTAGE, dataSpring will continue to provide market research solutions through its valuable assets, people, and customer contacts.

Our Mission

To connect brands with targeted consumers through our leading technology, thereby cultivating real relationships between products and people.

Our Core Values

Think Independently, Ask Deep Questions
We dig into the issues and get to their essence. Only then are we able to bring our unique contribution to the table and get one step closer to our goal.
Act as One, Execute 'Til It's Done
We value action every bit as much as ideas. For us, it is not about coming up with the perfect plan; it's about developing do-able solutions and executing them together.
When Reality Says "No", Passion Rules
No matter the situation— tough or easy— we push unwaveringly to turn our ideas into reality. Our passion is the wellspring that keeps us going.
Build Great Things Together
When each of us is fully engaged, we are able to play off each other's diverse knowledge, skills, and strengths. In this way, we can achieve more together than we ever could alone.
Invite Challenges
Some challenges can lead to failure, but that’s not a word we worry about. Because knowing what doesn't work, only brings us closer to what does.
