Company History

Prior to founding the company in 1988, Michael J. Budde, President and CEO of Advanced Data-Comm, Inc., was a Sociology professor at Loras College, where he taught classes in methods research and statistics.

During his tenure, Budde launched the Center for Business and Social Research (CBSR), where his students conducted telephone surveys for small businesses, hospitals and local governments in Northeast Iowa, including economic development enterprises.

The CBSR also conducted media research studies for a number of broadcasters in the tri-state area.

Using this experience, Budde has built an organization that has conducted thousands of surveys and has 15 years of extensive research experience in various markets including: healthcare (managed care, HMO's, physician practices), consumer goods and services, financial services, payroll and human resources, telecommunications, and utilities.

Advanced Data-Comm now operates 4 call centers, including two in Iowa (Dubuque and Oelwein) and two in Wisconsin (Ashland and Superior).

Central Telephone Facility/Call Center

Advanced Data-Comm maintains a call center with 120 CATI-equipped calling stations used for research.

CATI surveys are programmed in house using TeleScript by Digisoft.

Clients can listen to interviews, live as they happen, off-site.

Our current supervisor to interviewer ratio is 10 to 1, ensuring that stringent quality control procedures are adhered to.

We also use predictive dialers as well as autodialer technology to help ensure that all projects run smoothly and efficiently.

Advanced Data-Comm can conduct regression and conjoint as part of a standard package.
