This is, without a doubt, a personal record. I completed and submitted a photo audit to Mintel last Monday. When I checked my mailbox last night, the check was already there.
Absolutely remarkable. 7 days from upload of report to having a paper check in my hand. Given 2-3 days for mail delivery, and taking out Sunday, that means they processed and approved the shop, plus issued and mailed payment in approximately 48 hours after upload.
Makes me wonder that if one company can do it in under a week, why does it take 60+ days sometimes.
