Customer stories

Gideon Overton

CEO 2020 Data Lab


Excellent Value for Money

"Whilst there is a level of self service, EmpowerRD staff were incredibly helpful throughout. Their portal is user friendly and their industry knowledge second to none. My claim was paid out at 100%."

Chris O'Sullivan

CTO Lexoo


Makes It Practically Painless!

"I've gone through the R&D process 4 times, and this was by far the easiest way to submit. They were great every step of the way - and the way the platform works made creating a proposal very easy."

George Chalmers

"This is not just a platform that they leave you to work through on your own, as I feared. The team are on top of everything and really helpful. Whole process took no time at all and was very painless."
