2nd Annual Canadian Frame Supplier Survey Launched

VuePoint IDS Inc. and Jobson Medical Information LLC., are pleased to announce the release of the 2nd annual VuePoint™ Canadian FRAME Supplier brand perception study.  The internet study of Canadian ECPs provides insights on over 40 Canadian frame suppliers on 20 different market attributes, including quality of product, customer service, back-order management, internet ordering, sales representative service and more.

With several companies making changes in their logistics operations, this year’s survey will delve into Canadian ECP’s experience and attitudes toward customer service and fulfilment operations located outside of Canada.

This year’s study will also identify which companies are distinguishing themselves in the popular unisex and millennial categories.

Results will help companies with competitive positioning, identifying required adjustments in priorities and determining opportunities to better serve clients’ needs.

The study also identifies ECPs assessment about companies’ business outlooks over the next 12 months. A Net Promoter Score® (NPS®) for the leading suppliers in the Canadian market are also provided.  The NPS is a robust comparative measure of company or brand loyalty by customers familiar with the brand.

Here is the list of Canadian Frame Suppliers included in the 2018 Study:

Alternative Eyewear (PLAN B)  Kirk & Kirk  Optika Eyewear
 Aspex  Lafont  Optiman Inc
 Audace  Lanctot  Optique Cerem Inc.
