Our philosophy: Be fully focused on you
There is no one-size-fits-all approach or solution to data privacy and compliance, particularly in our industry, so ESOMAR Plus is designed to be flexible, tailored. Available on-demand so you can get the tools and resources you need, when you need them, reflecting specifically the requirements and nuances data, research and insights demand, unlike any other consultancy service of the sort.
What we've done, we can do for you
Since SKIM is a fast-growing international market research agency, we have the ambition to offer high quality to our clients, but we lack the legal resources that bigger companies have to support change processes such as with GDPR. It was great to have the ESOMAR team to offer the legal expertise and resources that we needed to get ourselves prepared.
We take pride in helping you
ESOMAR Plus services have been a lifesaver when GDPR came in effect. Their services and templates helped us resolve several of the administrative issues as we were getting ready. They helped make the transition easier and smoother.
