Environmetrics has used the internet surveying services of i-Link on a number of projects over the last few years. On each occasion they brought a professionalism and attention to detail to the project that allowed us to deliver accurate and reliable research results to our clients.
They provide a complete service, from creative research design at the outset, to the quick set-up of the survey site and regular contact and data updates as the survey progresses.
We have used them for a range of clients and they have been very flexible in adapting to the different surveys topics and samples that have been involved. We would not hesitate to use i-Link on future projects and would recommend them to anyone who required high quality and cost effective internet research services.
INSIDE STORY has been using i-Link’s services since 2002. We have always found the i-Link staff willing to please and provide excellent service, going beyond a simple supplier relationship to more of a partnership.
Most of the projects we commission from i-Link differ from the usual online questionnaire style and have offered unusual challenges. i-Link has always risen to these and the technicians have never failed to solve any issues that occur. We continue to be impressed with i-Link and are happy to advocate them.
Footprints Market Research
We have been working with i-Link for almost six years now and have found them to be superb in terms of responsiveness, turn-around speed, accuracy and presentation of our questionnaires. Footprints Market Research is pleased to use i-Link for its online surveys needs. Time and again, the company has accommodated tight turnarounds, provided high quality output and delivered a professional service. We have been particularly impressed by the ‘can-do’ attitude of Scott, Chris and all the team at i-Link.”

Wallis Consulting Group
Wallis Consulting Group has used i-Link Research since the company formed for most of its internet studies. We have found all our dealings to be extremely professional and pleasant. We find i-Link’s services to be fast and dependable and the quality of work is exceptional. Our clients have also been extremely happy with the results.
So good is the service we receive that we have delayed our own plans to install internet software and continue to outsource this function safe in the knowledge it is in the hands of experts.
Perhaps the highest recommendation is that, on occasion, i-Link staff have dealt directly with our clients. Our clients have been impressed with the level of knowledge and professionalism displayed. We have no hesitation in recommending i-Link as a provider of internet research services.

We manage your projects the ISO way
At i-Link we have achieved another milestone in our company history. After over 48 procedures, 50 internal audits, and a 4 day external audit from SAI Global, our team was successfully awarded the ISO 20252 certification in May 2008. i-Link is now one of the only 21 companies in Australia certified under the international standard for market, opinion and social research.
What it means for our clients: achieving and maintaining our ISO certification requires our steadfast commitment to continuous quality. You entrust us with critical tasks such as sample recruitment, survey building and hosting, comprehensive logic testing prior to field work, right through to extracting data files that are always accurate and reliable. Our daily tasks are thoroughly guided by exhaustive procedures ensuring the ongoing quality of our work.
How do we really manage your projects? Bearing in mind that client satisfaction is our number one priority, we manage your projects the ISO way in terms of:
- Better documentation: for example, complete project and client records, no matter how small or how large the project. We will always maintain a file containing a complete and accurate history of our clients operations with us.
- Improved internal and external communication: everyone within our Field Services team knows who is responsible for what, from project briefing to programming, to field work and delivering the final data requirements.
- Greater quality awareness: if you have a query or complaint, we take it seriously. We immediately conduct an internal audit to identify the issue, then quickly come up with active solutions to fix the problem and ensure it is prevented from happening again.
What you can expect from our team: for every task you require us to manage, you can expect more consistency and accountability, especially from our Project Managers. We want you to be completely confident that the people you have entrusted with managing your projects will follow effective procedures designed to maximise efficiency and quality.
You speak, we listen. As our partner you can help us continuously improve our service. We always want to hear your comments, feedback and concerns. Drop us a line anytime at: firstname.lastname@example.org
