Business Link Staffordshire claims to have met its performance targets for 2005-6.
The announcement comes as it prepares for a major shake-up, coming to terms with a new regional system being imposed by development agency Advantage West Midlands.
In the 12 months to March it provided significant assistance to 1,251 local businesses through a Business Link adviser, 39 per cent above the target figure of 900.
Customer satisfaction levels rose, with 95 per cent fairly or very satisfied - an increase of three per cent over the figure in 2004-5.
The organisation assisted 616 new business start-ups, 23 per cent more than the target of 500.
The number of companies helped to diversify was 46 per cent above target.
During the year, the customer services team fielded 24,771 calls seeking information on a wide variety of issues including starting a business, innovation, training, customer care and employment issues.
Business Link Staffordshire chief executive Jennifer Carley said: "This latest batch of performance figures show that Business Link Staffordshire continues to serve the local community well.
"Large-scale changes in the provision of business advice and assistance lie ahead as business support services adopt a regional structure.
"Over the coming months Business Link Staffordshire will be working with the other Business Links in the West Midlands area to reshape our operations in line with the new organisational model, while maintaining or improving our current high levels of service."
Business Link Staffordshire chairman Sue Arnold said: "The organisation has continued to offer high levels of service and customer satisfaction at a time of significant change."
