Elemental Data Collection ensures a small team approach to research dividing the call center into 5 distinct teams with each team consisting of a dedicated quality supervisor that allows for routine monitoring for quality control of 10-15% of all surveys. Our field supervisors and call center management staff support these smaller teams with excellent sample, productivity and quota management.
The facility has been approved for Designated Safeguarding Capability (DSC) at the Proected B level by the federal Canadian government. All surveys are registered with the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association’s (MRIA) Research Registration System. The registration system has been created by the survey research industry to allow the public to verify that a survey is legitimate, get information about the survey industry or register a complaint.
