What our clients say:

“We have been using Dods EU for a few years now and have just added UK to our Package as it has become a vital tool to help us stay on top of the political agenda on a daily basis. Compared to other similar services we used before, Dods provides a quality service with a tailor made approach, not to mention the hands-on client service that really sets Dods apart. The service is easy to use and the alerts/daily recaps are always spot on and timely.”
Mathieu Brucker

EU Government Affairs Manager
“Having a platform such as DODS which regularly keeps you updated on the most relevant changes in your chosen areas of interest, helped us to speed up the business development processes and increase our understanding of policies which are closely connected to our industry. The people behind DODS strive to give you the most crucial information so that you can focus on only the most important tasks within your organization. We’re extremely appreciative and satisfied with DODS’s service. Keep up the good work.”
Ozren Martinović

Public Affairs Advisor
“After using Dods Monitoring for nearly two years now, I can safely say that the whole team at GIE could not do without the invaluable support the service provides. Whether working in public affairs or communications, the Briefings and tailor-made research (e.g. stakeholder mapping, an updated Energy Attaches list, etc.) have become real time savers. We warmly recommend the service and have actually just renewed for another two years!”
