(Boston, MA) June 5, 2017 – The Bernett Group (Bernett), a marketing research firm specializing in data collection and survey solutions, announced the opening of two new locations as the firm increases its presence in the United States. The expansion is in alignment with Bernett’s growth objectives, focused on increasing inbound and outbound call center capabilities and creating new research products for clients, with an emphasis on custom panels and data visualization.

Bernett has opened a new call center in Salt Lake City, Utah, delivering innovative phone data collection solutions. This 40-seat call center creates greater research capacity, allowing Bernett to better meet the demands of its large customer base. The decision to open the call center was due in large part to its location in Salt Lake City. The city, known to many in the tech sector as Silicon Slopes, is an emerging hub for technology startup companies in the country. Utah was ranked as America’s Top State for Business in 2016 by CNBC. Bernett technology partners include Qualtrics and Domo, both start-ups located in the Slopes.

“Bernett is focused on introducing leading marketing technologies into our suite of services to improve efficiencies for our customers,” said Matt Hayes, President and CEO of The Bernett Group. “Operating a call center in a city that is contributing to important technological innovation is a great asset for The Bernett Group. We embrace the hard-working culture of the people of Salt Lake and the technology that is fueling the growth in the area.”

In addition to Bernett’s new call center in Salt Lake City, the company has also opened a new office in Austin, Texas. The Austin office will be focused on growing Bernett’s integrated survey solutions, which includes mobile phones, online surveys and custom panels. In 2016, Austin ranked first in the CNBC Metro 20: America’s Best Places to Start a Business and scored as the top city in the American City Business Journals Small Business Vitality rankings.

“We identified Austin as a priority location for Bernett because of the flourishing online business environment and the accessibility to top developers and programmers,” said Grover Daniels, Chief Operating Officer of The Bernett Group. “We see great potential in the integration of online surveys, custom panels and data visualization designed by Bernett. Austin is the perfect place to grow our business.”
