Ronald McLaughlin, Procurement Data Specialist, Scotland Excel
We have used Key Note for 3 years now and find the product to be more than just a Market Intelligence Platform. Key Note is renowned for the comprehensive nature of its Market Reports and there is a wealth of useful information, which we can reference to aid our procurement activity. For example, with the Benchmarking functionality, we can track financial information about our suppliers. In our experience, Key Note is a company that is responsive to its customers' needs.
Gary Sunderland, Head of Research, Leading Private Equity Firm
Key Note offers a good comprehensive look at the UK Market. The functionality of the database and its ability to reference through Companies House reports and industries offers the user a well-rounded experience.
Jim Clark, Head of Insight, IPA
Key Note is the Swiss Army knife of report platforms, incorporating both consumer and B2B research (not to mention Companies House data). It therefore has a comprehensive line-up of titles, all of which are frequently updated. I like the fact that the analysis within the reports is based on “hard data”, through a combination of in-house and external sources.
Jack Mears, Knowledge and Information Partner, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills
Key Note is one of the most dynamic and intuitive products the department subscribes to. It has also remained one of the most-used services for a number of years. The combination of market reports, linked to real company data, within one product, is particularly useful. The constant investment and desire to improve the service sets it aside from a number of other organisations and I look forward to working with them for many years to come.
Cardiff University has had access to Key Note market reports for many years now. We find the data very useful for students as it covers both consumer markets and business to business. The service is easy to access and we find the staff at Key Note always helpful.
Birmingham Central Library, Birmingham Central Library/Business Insight
Not only do we find Key Note to be an exceptionally good product that is well used but Key Note's helpful and friendly staff actually do what they say they will do and almost act as extra staff for your service. They have never let us down and the reliability of the service is second to none.
Business Information Service, Essex County Council, Adults, Health and Community Wellbeing Libraries
Key Note enables library users across Essex to access leading market research data. Our many customers who are starting up in business have particularly benefited from the breadth and quality of information provided. We have always had a good rapport with the staff at Key Note and value their support.
Judge Business School
I regard Key Note as the number one provider of UK market research. The way in which Key Note content is packaged and presented is appealing and easy to understand and, therefore, a must for my taught course students. Their products are complemented by remarkably high levels of customer service.
Senior Lecturer in Marketing, University of Liverpool
Key Note is one of the main information services used by my undergraduate students when completing group assignments relating to the investigation of organisations and the nature of the markets in which those organisations operate. Students seem to find the service easy to use and the information obtained is always pertinent and topical.
Cranfield School of Management, Cranfield University
We have used Key Note reports at Cranfield University for over 10 years and find them to be an excellent source of market information.
London Metropolitan University
London Metropolitan University has subscribed to Key Note for many years and find the reports to be very comprehensive, well-laid out and contain all the essential 'ingredients' such as market share and SWOT analysis.
Business Insight, Birmingham Central Library
Our customers prefer Key Note reports as they relate to specific products and services reflecting the reality of the small business marketplace rather than multi-national concerns.
