Frequently Asked Questions 

The amount of time required for a custom data extract will be determined by the complexity of the request and how long it will take our production team to run your custom data extract.

Once we have received your request, one of our analysts will contact you to verify that we have understood your request as well as your data requirements. Refining the data requirements can take a few days up to a couple of weeks to ensure we are providing you with all the information that you require based on your budget. Again, depending on the nature of the report it can take the production team a couple of days to produce the report depending on how many requests are already in the queue. Once the report is complete, our analysts will email the final product or arrange for delivery through our secure File Retrieval System.

If you are looking for a simple aggregate data report, we can usually provide the report within seven business days, if you are looking to produce a large custom report with specific requirements it could take a month or longer to complete the process.
