Communication and service levels were outstanding
I always enjoyed working with Ed and his team as their communication and service levels were outstanding. We recognised them on a number of occasions as our top Supplier, shown by the fact that they easily filled difficult roles that our other partners could not. This was no doubt helped by their large professional network, their enthusiasm for the sector, their ability to always ask the right questions as Subject Matter Experts, and their willingness to go the extra mile. I would have absolutely no hesitation recommending Ed and MSI as a partner.
Really do produce positive results
MSI Pharma were instrumental in hiring several members of our Clinical team. I found their professionalism and keenness to help me very refreshing. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any client who is looking for a proactive consultancy who really do produce positive results.
