Following the rebranding of FSL, CGiX and the What If have been updated to reflect our new logo and colour palette.

FSL Customer Day – Book your seat

We hope that you have now received your invitation to the new FSL Customer Day.  This year’s event will be on Tuesday 7th November.

As mentioned, following feedback from last year’s CGiX User Group we have changed the format of the event and extended the invitation to include all individuals from client firms.  If you have not received your invitation, or you think we should invite someone else from your firm then please contact the event team.

The half day agenda will include product updates, market insights and breakout sessions for specialist streams.  The event will also provide the opportunity to speak with experts in their field and a Q&A session.  We will end with a networking lunch providing an opportunity for attendees to catch up with FSL staff and their industry peers.

We look forward to seeing you there.

FSL Customer Survey

In 2021, FSL conducted its first customer satisfaction survey with a plan to run them biennially.  Therefore, this year we plan to ask you for your feedback again.

You will soon receive an email with a link to an online survey.  We ask you to share your thoughts on our products, services and overall experience partnering with FSL. The survey is tailored to ask you only about the areas where you interact with us.

All feedback received will help us shape our current and future offerings.  Insight from the survey is used to enhance the experience you have with FSL.

We really appreciate the time you will invest in completing it and look forward to your responses.

If you have any queries, then please contact the Research team.
