Who CASRO is in the Industry
CASRO provides continuous value to Market Strategies International both in terms of helping us manage our business and understand the overall marketplace, business issues and dynamics in our industry. Specifically, CASRO serves as the central resource for helping us understand and navigate regulatory and legislative issues that can potentially impact our industry. The data from the CASRO financial and compensation surveys provide valuable annual benchmarks for evaluating our business progress. We are one of the first companies to take advantage of the ISO 20252 certification process offered through CIRQ, an affiliate of CASRO. Finally, and certainly not the least important, CASRO provides multiple opportunities each year for senior managers in our industry to interact with each other around important business, technology, and research methods and operations topics.



Comparative Data Invaluable to Your Business Survey research provides the market intelligence by which all the major corporations of the world steer their businesses. As leaders of research businesses, you, too, need information to guide your strategic decision making. CASRO membership provides access to such valuable data via the Business Benchmarking Survey Report and Compensation Survey Report. Members utilize these valuable industry benchmarks to track the efficiency and profitability of their businesses. The reports are free to participating members.
