About us

As part of our on-going Microsoft Partner programme, Microsoft recently arranged for an independent market research company to survey our customers on their satisfaction with Compass.

We have now received the results and are extremely pleased to share them with you below.

We wanted to say a big thank you to all those that scored us so highly and for your many positive comments.

To put the results in context, recipients were asked to score each answer on a scale of 1-9, however only scores of 8 or 9 count as a positive answer and therefore contribute to the figures above.

We are currently in the process of going through the responses and will respond individually to any questions or comments you may have raised.
Whilst we are extremely pleased with the results, we would like to make it clear that they haven’t made us complacent and we will continue to strive to provide the highest standard of products, support and services.
