two founders of Springboard Research, Dane Anderson
and Chris Perrine, have a long history in the
IT Market Research industry and, as a result,
a lot of knowledge about what works and what doesn’t.
One of their frustrations with this industry has
always been the way traditional IT research firms
are bogged down by legacy, and as a result, are
often slow to move, inflexible in being able to
meet client needs and are not able to keep pace
with the fast moving industry they serve.
So Chris and Dane got their collective brains
and experience together in 2003 and came up with
a business idea for an innovative, flexible, and
fast moving research firm, an idea we know today
as Springboard Research, which was founded in
late 2003 and now operates globally.
Neither of the founders has looked back since,
with the world’s largest IT companies keen
to work with a company that offers them a new
and innovative approach to research. Their customers
are also appreciating a different firm in the
market, with many having no choice in the past
but to work with the legacy-bound research firms.
Now IT companies have a real alternative that
offers better and faster results, for a fraction
of the cost.
The team has well and truly expanded beyond Dane
and Chris, with an experienced senior management
and analyst team in place. This team works across
the globe to develop the strategy, direction and
growth of Springboard Research worldwide.
Another important aspect of Springboard Research
is the values of the team. The senior management
team value people above all else and have built
a global team of entrepreneurial, customer-driven,
team-focused people who live by the Springboard
values. Springboard’s team are:
• Team focused
• Knowledge seekers
The Springboard team, from top to bottom, is 100%
dedicated to the success and global growth of
Springboard Research and will not waver from its
core mission ‘To be the global standard
for innovative IT market research, offering customers
flexibility, value and a superior depth of knowledge.’
