- Data Collection Services>>Focus Group Facility
This is our specialty!
We have been rated a “Top Facility” by the Impulse Survey of Moderators for the past TEN years and we are conveniently located near O'Hare Airport in Chicago.
Here is how we do it:
We know the importance of timely communication throughout your study. Our Project Managers are always available to communicate with you via telephone or e-mail. The service policies we have developed mandate that clients will never wait on proposals, daily progress reports, or even the return of telephone messages.
OUTSTANDING CLIENT SERVICE:
Our Qualitiatve Assistants (QAs) ring praise time and time again. Each client is assigned a dedicated QA. This person is separate from the person who checks in respondents. If we have more than one client group visiting, then there is a third “shared” QA as well. This level of staffing allows our QA’s to be one step ahead of your needs. It is quite common for clients tell us our QA’s are the best they have ever seen.
There is nothing we take more seriously because without proper recruiting all effort is wasted and findings can not be trusted. Why spend thousands of dollars and unknowingly rely on opinions provided by unqualified or fraudulant recruiting? You can trust Precision and our proprietary Quality Controlled Recruiting process.
We are capable of recruiting from a 6 county region via our in-house phone center with 30 computerized recruiting stations. Our 125,000 person Chicago area database services up prequalified prospects for our recruiters to screen. We are adept at recruiting to other facilities or meeting sites and are experienced at recruiting groups in excess of 300 persons. We are also comfortable working from client lists.
