Additionally, in 2016, 20|20 Research joined forces with iModerate.  “iModerate is known in the industry for building the right technology and processes to support quick and powerful insights,” said Isaac Rogers, CEO of 20|20’s technology division.  “Working together, we’ve been able to expand the suite of research solutions available to help our clients get the right level of information and support they need to move forward.”
