The ultimate test of service excellence, these awards are determined by votes cast by FDs in our annual Satisfaction Survey, which was completed by 1,300 finance decision-makers in 2013.
These awards recognise banks, auditors, financial software suppliers and recruitment firms.
For this year’s FDs’ Satisfaction Survey, we received a total of 1,233 valid submissions, a new record over the 14 years of the survey.
Of these financial decision-makers, 534 were from in SMEs (sub-£25m turnover), 115 were from quoted companies, 890 were FDs or financial controllers and 276 were based in London (the most popular region).
The scores offered for customer satisfaction around key aspects of service provision decide the winners of the supplier categories at the FDs’ Excellence Awards, held on May 1, 2014.
