We have a number of client testimonials that can be viewed on our website.

Satisfied & Loyal Clients
After the completion of our projects we send out a client satisfaction form. Since 2012 all of our clients have indicated that they were satisfied with us and 90% indicated they were very satisfied. In addition, during 2016 we analysed how many of our clients were previous repeat clients and we found that more than 60% fell within this category. This commitment to going the extra mile for clients has helped us achieve double digit year-on-year growth every year since 2001 – supported by a recent client satisfaction survey which told us that 96% of clients have good relationships with individual members of staff, and 94% think we’re flexible to work with!

I found the service we received from DJS Research second to none. From the time of our initial contact to the submission of their final report I found them professional, enthusiastic and well informed.

DJS Research was very professional throughout the process from briefing of the research to presenting back the findings.
