Testimonials from some of our customers:

  • “Your people doing the mark-up do a great job with pretty difficult material” John Laurie, Digital Initiatives Librarian, University of Auckland.
  • "We at Landcare Research are highly impressed with the work of DataNZ. Their quality, turnaround and price are excellent. We gladly endorse their services to anyone." Greg Comfort, Manager, Manaaki Whenua (Landcare Research) Press, Lincoln.
  • "DataNZ have been very helpful in realising this major new online resource (Web-enabling the Fletcher Index of Māori names) for the Library. The service we received was excellent and we are very happy with their work." Kathryn Parsons, New Zealand Collection Librarian, University of Waikato Library, Hamilton.
  • "The service we've received from DataNZ has been first rate and we'd recommend them to anyone undertaking any digitization project, large or small. Their quality, price, and customer service have been excellent in all our dealings with them." Stefan Boddie, Manager, DL Consulting Ltd., Hamilton.
  • "The quality of the work is very high, I would like to thank you and am willing to give a recommendation for future clients, I found that you were very responsive to my feedback and willing to go above and beyond to improve the quality of your work: You were open and flexible to communicate with me to continue to improve the results. Specifically, I've noticed that you have, when I noticed that the handwritten medication names cause me a lot of quality assurance work, improved the quality by ensuring that these medicines are spelled correctly in your OCR results. You have also suggested additional data capture fields based on the nature of any handwritten responses in or around form fields that led to confusion or errors, thus increasing the quality of the work exponentially. I look forward to continued work with you and will include an analysis of the quantitative and qualitative aspects of using your services in an academic publication." Lisa New, Clinical Decision Support Tool Developer, Brisbane, Australia
