2000-2002: A new success crowns the new millennium
On 5th May 2000 the famous BARB Institute (the British Audience Research Board), which had previously called for a tender to assign the TAM service in the United Kingdom, announced that AGB Group gained the contracts for "Metering Panel Homes" and "Data Processing" for the years 2002 through 2006. This success was achieved after severe selections 12 months long, when all the companies working in this field were deeply examined and weighed up by BARB.
AGB was again successful ousting Taylor Nelson/Sofres which had been working for the English Institute for many years and was compelled to pass the buck. Therefore also the United Kingdom was added to those countries where AGB Group already applied his winning formula to TAM services.
