ESdat is proud to present the results of our Inaugural ESdat Users Opinion Survey. The top line result was that 98.8% of respondents to the survey said they would recommend ESdat to a colleague. The main reason was time-savings over previous environmental database management techniques. It was found that all respondents save at least 20% of their time analysing data with ESdat. Over 50% of respondents save more than 40%.
