Client Testimonials

“I have known and worked with the principals of Objective Insights for nearly 20 years. Objective Insights has provided forecasting models for the Marketing, New Product Planning and Business Development functions at JPI. Their expertise in building reliable forecasting models and their knowledge and ability to populate them with key assumptions is commendable.  We have all been very impressed with their commitment to customer service and ability to meet our aggressive timelines.”

“I love working with your models. They take away all the work and additional calculations that are typical with forecasts. You have thought of every issue with forecasts (price increases, market growth, and share trends) and make updating assumptions easy and user friendly.

I wish everyone (all of my clients) would use Objective Insights models to create forecasts.”

Katherine Timoney

“I have worked with Objective Insights several times over the years while in strategic marketing roles at various biotech and pharmaceutical companies.  Each time I work with them, Charley, Brett and colleagues deliver a top quality job, whether on a qualitative, quantitative or strategic project.  In each case, they are on time and budget and make my life easier by producing detailed, accurate and insightful work that provides lasting value to the organization.  Their work is not put away on a shelf and forgotten, instead it is used again and again as a relevant and useful reference. When working with Charley and Brett, I know I don’t have to worry about the results, they are guaranteed to be excellent.  Without hesitation, I give Objective Insights my highest recommendation.”

Using OI is cost effective and allows us to have top-notch financial models with minimal staff.”

I just wanted to say thank you for creating such a great tool!!”
