Testimonials

"Decision Innovation Solutions' (DIS) knowledge and background in agriculture made them a natural fit to help us assess and study the state of agriculture in South Dakota. The team at DIS was easy to work with, knowledgeable and thorough. Their excellent work has provided us with a comprehensive picture of the agriculture industry and how it impacts our state. Their study has been utilized inside and outside of government to communicate the importance of agriculture to South Dakota and to help us plan for the future."

"Decision Innovation Solutions has been a very good provider of detailed, unique research and analysis for Iowa Farm Bureau Federation. I have found DIS to be very flexible as they have responded to our varied requests and research requirements. There work on models for farm program analysis, and biofuels analysis have provided great insights and information for our members. Their work on environmental and water quality analysis is superb. I strongly recommend them to anyone needing analytical work done on ag and environmental issues."

"We have been working with Decision Innovation Solutions for the past eight years to perform economic analysis pertinent to crop and livestock farmers.

Decision Innovation Solutions is an absolute pleasure to work with. They are friendly, accommodating and patient. Their staff brings impeccable technical know-how, expertise and creativity to every project they have completed for us.

I'm always impressed with the service I receive when I interact with them. They listen carefully and 'get it' very quickly. They respond to questions almost immediately and address them very effectively.

"The decision to include Decision Innovation Solutions on our project team as we developed and refined our projects was crucial to the success we have experienced. In addition to professionally completing the economic impact and feasibility analysis we hired them to perform, they provided valuable technical assistance and information beyond what they were hired to do. Their work is timely, accurate, and exceeded our expectations. I think I speak for our entire team stating that we are as proud of the process and product generated with their help as any we have accomplished to date. We have worked with DIS twice and will be starting a third contract with them soon."

"Our organization turned to Decision Innovations Solutions to tackle a complex, statewide analysis that relied on large datasets. The project involved the support of several other organizations in our industry's network. The DIS management team proved to be highly responsive to our communication needs and flexible in working with the steering committee for the project. DIS excelled in addressing individual's concerns, working with specialists in other institutions, and being accessible.

DIS can deliver on stated objectives and handle innovative projects."

"Quality, timely data and research is extremely important in reaching our organization's advocacy goals. I've had the opportunity to work with Decision Innovation Solutions through three research studies they conducted for us. In each study, DIS listened to our research and data needs and goals; asked questions; developed appropriate cost-conscious proposals; provided feedback; keep us apprised of the research progress; and ultimately provided an excellent finished product. The Decision Innovation Solutions team was also willing to work with us closely in handling media questions on the research. The results of our research have been cited repeatedly by other interested parties and the media. There is no greater satisfaction than sitting at a conference and having a speaker cite research results and data and knowing you played a role in that research. Research performed by Decision Innovation Solutions can make that happen."

Thank you for the work and thank you for the insights your team delivered."

"In addition to the data collection, analysis, and presentation capabilities of DIS, I appreciate their ongoing efforts to match our organization's research interests with other partners on areas of mutual concern. Our participation in and results from the Multi-State Land Use Study are a clear example; the information was insightful, helpful, and affordable for all parties involved!"

"Feed Energy has used Decision Innovation Solutions to create and implement a decision tool to dramatically improve our supply chain management process. This is a much more sophisticated approach than we have used and couldn't have been done without the capabilities of DIS. Their analytical work, ability to quickly understand the depth and breadth of our business needs, and the decision tool that was created have all been first-rate and extremely useful to our business. We continue to use DIS in this process and their continuing assistance is invaluable. I would highly recommend their services."
