Customer Testimonials

Ludovic Ferras

Senior Manager, Global Consultants Relationship

The Acuity team meets all the consultant databases delivery deadlines. The volume is very high and even when RFP's are prioritized over databases during quarter-end the team still manages to meet all the databases deadlines. We never have to ask if data is delivered on time. It is without question each month that delivery has been met.
Highly confident and satisfied with the work over the past year. Also as important, the team has been a pleasure to work with. They are eager to assist in all aspects of the Business Response Team's deliverables and have been instrumental in helping us meet all the deliverables in a timely fashion this year.
