Offline tablet surveys:
- Our software lets us set-up tablet surveys to be conducted without the need for an internet connection. Data is stored on the tablet until an internet connection becomes available. We also provide tablets from our own stock of iPads. For events such as car clinics and hall tests, we are also happy to support the event and oversee the data collection process.
- Our industry leading software lets us set-up surveys ranging from simple customer or member surveys to complex multi-language surveys. We can also combine and merge online with paper and telephone surveys for one seamless output. Sometimes we send out invitations, sometimes we provide unique or generic links for clients to send out invitations, and sometimes we work with panel companies who send out the invitations - most things are possible with our flexible software.
- We still do paper data entry such as magazine and readership surveys. We also assist with postal surveys. Coding open questions is a specialty, and sometimes that is the only element of a survey we are asked to do.
- With increasing access to research tools, some researchers conduct their own surveys in packages such as Survey Monkey, Snap, Alchamer (Survey Gizmo) and Qualtrics. Data is easier to collect these days. They then send us the data file, and we prepare tabulations and other outputs. Costs are relatively low, turnaround fast, and accuracy high. Since we do it on a daily basis there is no learning curve, and we are happy to have a white label operation, where we act as the client's engine room or data partner, behind the scenes.
