In today's competitive market place happy customers are paramount to the success of any business (something we continually preach when conducting our customer satisfaction surveys). As such, for each and every project we take on, we aim not only to meet client expectations but exceed them.
It's all very well saying the above (anyone can) but at DJS Research Ltd we monitor our performance against these objectives. At the end of every project we send a customer satisfaction questionnaire to assess our performance and to aid our continual quality improvement.
Results from our clients are extremely positive. Currently (May 2011) 92% of our clients are very satisfied with our service with the remainder saying they are satisfied. In addition, last year two thirds of our projects were from repeat clients and the other third (new clients) said that they were very likely to use us in the future (and some are already doing so).
Some of our testimonials are outlined below and other examples can be found by clicking on the specific sector links towards the end of this page. Our most up-to-date testimonials along with detailed case studies, can be found on our new corporate website, which can be found here: DJS Research Testimonials and Case Studies
