  • The MIT association is very reassuring, their approach was very methodical, confident, patient, helpful and encouraging. Outstanding team, focused, conceptually easy, quick at negotiating time and delays, great class, simple and user friendly despite the complex systems.
    Maggie Palazzolo, Research Coordinator
  • Excellent experience overall. Correspondence was kind, fast and helpful mostly via email; we suggested new features as needed and they were added quickly.
    Daniel Oster, Assistant to the CEO
  • There are many others who say they can do similar things, but I don't think they are actually capable. GalaxyAdvisors is different because many others don't use the social network methodology to learn what people are talking about.
    Daniel Oster, Assistant to the CEO
  • Very Unique. There are no others like them! We trust galaxyadvisors and feel that relationship is critical, as we are not social network analysis experts and need their help and understanding.
