We are one of the most technologically advanced field service firms in the country. In addition to our 70-station CATI (Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing) center, we have the LARGEST focus / jury group facility in Louisiana, with three meeting rooms and a 14-person observation room. Our traditional focus group room, behind one-way glass, seats up to 15 participants plus a moderator. We have two other rooms for 20 to 50 participants. From our central observation room, clients can monitor all participants from behind one-way glass or viewing 5 video screens (using wireless headsets for audio). We also offer streaming video via Focus Vision. SCI occupies a free-standing, two-story brick building with adequate, well-lit parking, located at the geographic center of Baton Rouge.
