AskIDC Inquiry Desk for Canada

Welcome to AskIDC

IDC Canada is continually working on improving your customer experience, including service to you. Ask IDC is designed to handle all domestic inquiries that relate to IDC's Canadian subscription research programs. Ask IDC provides:

  • Access to our knowledgeable analysts
  • A centralized inquiry function that identifies the appropriate analyst(s) to respond
  • Constant tracking and monitoring of each open inquiry

Standard Inquiry Guidelines

  • The question/inquiry must fall within the scope of the research services to which your company subscribes. If not, a fee may apply.
  • The analyst must be able to answer the question in 2 hours or less - including time to prepare and deliver the response. Work effort beyond this may require the involvement of the IDC Custom Solutions team and may involve additional fees.
  • If your inquiry includes non-Canadian elements, then a custom inquiry fee may apply.
  • There must be sufficient inquiry hours available as part of your organization's subscription to answer your request.

How to Complete an Inquiry

If you are unable to find what you are looking for on please contact Ask IDC, and we will do our best to assist you. Sending an email to Ask IDC is the preferred method for initiating an inquiry.

Here are some suggestions to follow when submitting an inquiry:

  • Be as specific as possible about the data or type of research you are interested in
  • State your desired time frame for completion
  • Include your company contact information (company, phone, email)
