In the last few months, we have made several developments focused on client service, including API integrations and greater panellist user experience. We are being rewarded with growth in client accounts, and new business wins across all sectors. We are also delighted to have added Eleanor Dance to our team, who joins from the full-service side of the business as Research Lead. Our clients can benefit from input on survey design, support on scripting and help with analysis.”
