Your Success is Our Success

…”I worked with Data Direct for a little over two years. They provided their services of insertion/fulfillment for an envelope distribution program we ran with client. During this time, they managed all the elements of the job for us, from inventory of products, insertion, waybills and shipping. In this time, we produced in the area of eight million envelopes.

I have only the highest praise and the deepest regard for this company. They handled every aspect of our job and the troubleshooting that goes along with it, with tremendous grace and attention to detail, more than I had received from any company we had previously worked with. The staff is both attentive and friendly and they strive to please in every area of service. I would highly recommend Data Direct to anyone looking for any of the services they provide, and with great enthusiasm. I hope I get the opportunity to work with them again in the future….”

T.A., President

“…I highly recommend Data Direct as a trusted supplier to our company and to anyone else looking for a mailing fulfillment partner.

It is rare indeed to find a supplier who offers both the best price and the best service. Data Direct is this supplier….”

P.H., Account Manager

“…Our company has been doing business with Data Direct for over 10 years. During this period of time, we have found Data Direct to be a well organized, co-operative, knowledgeable, service oriented, ethical company, as well as providing high quality services and products.

We would not hesitate to recommend Data Direct’s services to their future clients….”

Yours sincerely,
M.B., Business Communications Senior Co-Ordinator

“…As a financial company, we deal with a number of financial organizations, financial advisors and clients. Our main goal is Customer Satisfaction, therefore, we expect the highest level of service from our suppliers.

Data Direct Mailing has been providing us extensive mailing services, including fulfillment and distribution functions over the past ten years. They have handled various types of mass mailings for our company, ranging from very confidential documents, e.g., Tax Receipts, T-4’s etc., to less sensitive materials, e.g., promotional, publications, reports, etc.

We have found Data Direct to be very effective in following through on instructions, efficient in meeting deadlines and very responsive to queries….”

Yours Sincerely,
R.T., Manager, Office Services

“… On behalf of my colleagues in the Canada Revenue Agency’s Benefit Programs Directorate, I would like to thank Data Direct Group and PolyMail Incorporated for the excellent service provided in inserting and mailing materials for the My Account Promotional Kit and the My Account CCTB Kit.

In Particular, I would like to commend the General Manager, Tina Profenna, for her commitment to getting a complex job done on time and to our satisfaction. The project involved multiple suppliers across Canada providing materials at different times, as well as pick-ups and deliveries from out Mississauga Distribution Centre. Ms. Profenna monitored the timing and quality of all deliveries and was very meticulous in pre-screening and documenting her own company’s tasks before any work was done. Her attention to detail involved almost daily interaction with my staff to ensure that a quality service was delivered. Because checks on materials were conducted well in advance of needed Data Direct services, your company caught substandard stock from another supplier in time for it to be replaced, thus avoiding problems that would have caused a delay in meeting project deadlines.

I would like to thank you again for providing outstanding service and contributing to an important Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) promotional campaign.”

Yours sincerely,
C.B., Director, Benefit Processing Division
