At Act One we pride ourselves on our integrity and communication. Even before we start a study, we will work with you to assess if we are the best company to meet your particular project's needs. If we are not a perfect fit, we will help refer you to other experts in the field who may better fit your proposal. Our first priority is that you complete a successful research project!

We have developed our own independent database of potential research respondents to help us find the best participants for your study. Our committed project managers are ready to dedicate themselves to your project. Our project manager will be involved in every aspect of your study, including respondent recruiting, project management, and direct communication with you. The project manager will also serve as the point of contact between you and the facility, if applicable.

The project managers and recruiters in our office average more than 10 years of experience in the field. Meet some of our project managers and recruiters here.
