Usability Testing Labs

Core’s in-house research facility includes three usability suites. Each suite features a participant room, an observation room (for direct observation of the study sessions through a one-way mirror), a kitchenette, and a private client office. We are conveniently located within walking distance to 12 usability testing labs which allow us to offer unmatched capacity without additional travel expenses.

Whether the research takes place at our facility or any other facility in the US or in the world, Core is available to handle all of the logistics.

We aim to meet all of your needs during your stay with us to assure you have a comfortable stay. You’ll receive a personal client service manager, free high-speed wireless internet access, beverages, and snacks. Catering services are available from some of the best establishments around.
