Saskatoon, SK– Itracks, in conjunction with the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) and the International Innovation Network (IIN), was awarded the MRIA (Market Research and Intelligence Association) Excellence in Research award for Best Multinational Research Project.

The accolade is given to research practitioners who have initiated and taken the lead in designing and implementing a market research project which collects data from respondents in more than one country. The IIN Practice Survey is an international survey of the owners of accounting practices from eight countries around the globe. The purpose of the survey was to better understand the business concerns and future plans of practitioners so that the accounting institutes belonging to the IIN could work both individually and collectively to better meet the needs of practitioners.Through a dedicated team of quality assurance specialists, survey developers and project managers, Itracks was responsible for programming and deploying the survey to meet the CICA and IIN’s specific requirements. The project ran from May 29, 2007 to June 28, 2007 providing valuable insights for 16 institutes in 17 countries. Itracks was also commissioned to participate in a second multi-national survey which was initiated in September of 2007.
