Results from Client Survey

As part of its continuous service development process, Replicon ordered an independent survey on client needs and level of satisfaction. This first study was directed to Health Care and Life Science sector companies. Later we plan to extend similar surveys to cover also ICT sector companies and possibly all leading Finnish growth companies.

Underlying theme of the survey was to find out the need and willingness to use outsourced financial and strategic services in general. We also asked what are the main competences that weigh when selecting an adviser.


Other part of the questionnaire was related to Replicon services, their pricing and customer satisfaction. We are very happy to say that almost all of the feed back related to Replicon and its services was positive. Please find summarised results of the survey below:

Questions and recorded responses:

1) 70 % of respondents have used or are planning to use an outside financial expert.
