North America

US— Online sample supplier uSamp has opened an office in Connecticut and formed a project management team to work out of India.

Eight members of staff have been hired to man the new office in Trumbull, while in India a team of 15 staff have been recruited to carry out project management work and a further 31 have been signed up to provide IT services.

The firm said that the new teams “provide a balance of local and offshore operations to ensure that online panel needs are met seamlessly, no matter the day or time or location”.

Suresh Subbiah (pictured), uSamp COO, said: “Many of our clients have research needs that extend well beyond American borders, and our consumer and business panels include panellists from six continents. It’s critical to have knowledgeable and well-aligned work teams who not only understand different cultures but are on the ground in multiple time zones to respond to client needs whenever and wherever they arise.”
