Up until now I've managed to avoid subscribing to research software (eg Selectapension/Cashcalc/FE Analytics (disclaimer: alternatives are available!)) and used my clients' logins; partly due to cost savings, and partly due to the fact that they can access the research at any time in the future should the need arise.
Now I'm in the situation where it might actually be useful as at least one client doesn't use any pension switch research software (they use Synaptics to choose the provider as part of their due diligence), which makes it somewhat tricky to work out things that aren't included on Synaptics.
I know some of the outsourced companies here have their own licences, and I want to find out whether you would still use your clients' own logins if provided, or if you just use yours all the time?
Also, how do you get around the fact that your company logo will be on some of the research (aren't we supposed to be invisible as far as the end client is concerned)?
And finally, can you give any idea of costs (I know if I call these companies they'll harass me forever!)?
