Thanks to all of you who completed the survey. A fantastic response and a lot of great ideas which we appreciate. What stands out the most is that is that there was a significant number of you who wanted a preview of the reports before purchase.

We have added this to our development list and will try and get this work completed in early summer. We will display the report with the financial information redacted so you can see exactly what you are going to buy.

At the same time, we are going to add graphs and other visual cues to the reports and vastly improve the company summary so that the first page of the report is a snapshot of the company with the remainder being drill down content.

Finally, the winner of our iPod Touch draw as chosen by the office randomizer is Rob Lee of Invisible Inc*, congratulations Rob!

Rob said "UKdata.com offers a fast, straight forward user friendly service with a range of options that met all of our requirements. Professional and efficient plus an incredible range of reports to choose from. Getting notification of updates directly by email of companies I've an interest in means I don't have to give them any thought until I really need to. I would highly recommend it."
