What our community says
I’ve enjoyed working with Lightning API and found the experience interesting and informative; it has been a constructive two way process. I’ve found the researchers highly knowledgeable and they always ask pertinent, searching questions.

Previous interactions with companies specialising in this area have usually involved attendance in person at advisory boards or lengthy phone calls at a fixed time of day. The API system developed by Lightning however is very different. It is simple, readily accessible, convenient, and easy to use.

Lightning API's platform is well designed to facilitate interactions in a rapid and user-friendly way. This initiative is useful to monitor changes in healthcare systems in a comfortable way.

It is always a pleasure to work with Lightning API because of your high expertise and proficiency in the field of drug development and market access.

I find Lightning API extremely professional, putting the respondent in a position to clearly express one's opinions and position in the best possible way, without the risk of pre-conditioning or bias. This is also due to the accurate preparation of the questions, materials, and logical flow of information.

Using the online research platform has been particularly productive. It enables time for more thought and reflection. If necessary, I can pause and refer to useful resources to better inform my responses. This adds another dimension to the research and adds value to the overall process.

Its attraction [the API platform] for me as a participant lies in the fact that it can be accessed at a time of day which suits me and that if necessary, I can save my responses and then go back into the platform to finish the research at a later date.
