Confirmit's German Subsidiary Opens its Doors for Business
Customers are delighted with Confirmit's investment in Germany
Thorsten Schwermer, CEO of PhoneResearch KG, based in Hamburg, commented: "I am delighted that Confirmit has opened an office in Cologne. From a customer's point of view, we believe that having a Confirmit office in Germany means that we can be even more closely aligned with Confirmit technology. I wish the team the very best for this new venture."
PhoneResearch prides itself on its innovative methods and technologies to offer professional field service for market research. The principal element in its service portfolio is market research programmes carried out by CATI (computer-assisted telephone interviews). CATI is low in cost and very fast, and enables PhoneResearch to conduct the most comprehensive studies within short periods of time - up to 2,000 interviews in 2 days - whilst still maintaining the highest level of quality.
Ingo Sander, director, rc (research & consulting) GmbH, commented: "We are excited about the opening of the Confirmit office in Germany. This is a clear sign of how important Confirmit takes the German market and its German customers and we are confident that Confirmit will continue to build its strong international market presence."
Dan Starkey, Business Development Director for Confirmit will head up the office in Cologne. Dan has been with Confirmit since 2007 in the feedback management and market research markets and has been working closely with Confirmit's German customers whilst based in the London office. He has started and will continue to recruit local Cologne people to work in the new office.
"Germany is a strong economic centre and one where we have been active for a number of years. We decided that the time is now right for us to set up a permanent presence in the country, from where we can support our current clients and create exciting new opportunities in a variety of vertical markets," said Henning Hansen, President and CEO, Confirmit. "We are very excited about our future in Germany and look forward to many successful years in Cologne."
Over the past six months, Confirmit has delivered 21 million completed surveys on its On-Demand platform, a 35% increase on the first half of 2010 (and 83% over 2009). In the same period, Confirmit continued its 100% overall uptime, powering a total of 170 million completed surveys in 2010.
