“Dennis Devlin and CLARITY Research & Strategy completed the first annual Client Satisfaction survey for my company, MACKEY. I cannot say enough good things about my experience working with them. It all started with Dennis deeply listening to what I truly wanted to understand about our clients, moved to a highly collaborative survey design process, and then a completely hands-off survey administration process (I didn’t need one more thing on my plate) and finished with an abundance of highly valuable insights presented to me in an easily digestible way. Working with Dennis, you don’t just get data, you gain wisdom. I feel I have more insights into what my clients want and where I need to improve our business than ever before. Needless to say, I highly recommend Dennis and CLARITY Research & Strategy for any market/client research needs.”
