About

This blog is created and maintained by Mark Zielinski: the co-founder and Director of IT at Winning Research Ltd., a young startup company and part of the Arrow Group of Companies, which has won accolades since its founding as the GTA’s best small employer, and is regularly featured in the top 50 of Canada’s Profit Magazine.  
 
One of the leading adopters and proponents of open-source technology in the market research industry, Mark has consistently stayed on top of the leading trends in survey and call center software, which he has customized in-house specifically for the market research industry.
 
Using open-source technology has allowed Winning Research to not only be more flexible and current than its competitors in technology, but has also allowed the company to keep costs much lower.  This has no doubt contributed to its being a consistent fixture in Canada’s Profit Hot 50 companies.
 
Mark is an active member and community contributor to several open-source projects including LimeSurveyViciDial, and Drupal.  He enjoys talking about and blogging about technology as it relates to market research and call centers.
