Scientific Telephone Samples (STS) is one of the largest and most respected sampling
suppliers in the United States. The company was founded in 1988, and has earned
a reputation for outstanding service and quality while maintaining competitive prices.
Importantly, our management staff have done most of the same things you do for a
living – worked as top level analysts and research consultants, run call centers,
designed hundreds of studies and questionnaires, written detailed statistically
oriented reports, and pretty much anything else you can lump into a research professional's
Whether you are a sampling specialist, a social science researcher, working as a
full-service research or political consultant, or are with a commercial call center
or university-affiliated survey research facility, you should strongly consider
STS as a potential resource to add to your team.
We think good sampling is more than taking an order and pushing a few buttons. That's
why the word SCIENTIFIC is the first part of our name.
An Open Letter from Steve Clark, Co-Founder and Partner
Our mission is to provide the highest quality marketing research sampling services
at a competitive price, and to ensure each and every client is completely satisfied.
We pride ourselves on the continued ability to make good on that promise. Ask our
clients. They will tell you we deliver extremely accurate, productive sampling that
makes research run smoother in the field.
Because our key staff have extensive research backgrounds, we provide a level of
knowledgeable customer service and support not often found these days.
And, I am proud to say, we continue to offer very competitive prices.
When we opened our doors in 1988, our major competitor was selling RDD samples for
16¢ per record, plus extras. We began at just 5¢. Today, the most expensive
RDD record we sell is still just 5¢ — and for large to medium size accounts,
that cost is often in the 1¢ to 2.5 range.
In today's marketplace, I think it is important to note that we at STS continue
to believe in our pricing model. Better sample does not have to cost more and I
personally love saving people money.
Our clients can rest assured that our use of cutting edge techniques, a host of
unique sampling options, more finite targeting of sampling frames and demo-targets,
and our added dimension of broad-based research knowledge will help guarantee every
sample developed by STS will be the finest available anywhere.
I thank you for your interest in STS and sincerely appreciate your business.
