“I needed to conduct a complex research study and wasn’t sure of the best way to approach it. I reached out to Rockbridge, and they coached me through it. I told them what I wanted to accomplish and they guided me on how to get there. They’re personable and were happy to translate technical information for me to understand because I didn’t have the technical background. They designed the report so that I was able to easily split it up and share it with my individual clients. This was important because we could use the segregated data to help inform our marketing strategies. Our advertising firm is using the research to come up with new campaigns and to adjust our goals too. The study provided tremendous value to our business.”

” Rockbridge really stands out in the way they engaged with us—they became part of our team. They handled our project as an important engagement and got personally involved by using the products. It enabled them to have better insight into what we wanted to do with our marketing and product strategy. Communications were excellent, as I got answers to my questions in as little as 30-60 minutes. They were very flexible and knowledgeable about the methodology too. We were pleased with the outcome of our collaboration with Rockbridge – actionable findings providing solid direction. ”

I am definitely a Rockbridge fan! ”

” Rockbridge completed two of the finest research projects the GBTA Foundation has ever commissioned.  Both projects were of the highest quality and always met our deadlines.  One of the projects included developing a sound methodology to reach a very tough to reach population.  We received tremendous value for the money and could not have done the work without Rockbridge.  In addition, Rockbridge staff were a pleasure to work with from beginning to end.  I look forward to working on our next project.”
