telephone pre-recruits

Focuscope specializes in telephone recruits.  Using telephone recruits is one of the best tools available for conducting accurate and cost-effective research projects. Each project is assigned a dedicated project manager who is the main point of contact.  All of our projects are handled in-house. Our growing in-house database covers nationwide and will supply you with the results you are looking for. When needed, we can achieve successful results with your self-supplied database sample.
