SSI Launches Advanced Online Survey Capabilities Demo

--Enhances SSI’s Position as a Leading End-to-End Solutions Provider --

SHELTON, Conn., Oct. 25, 2017 –  Design, programming and implementation of market research studies have been challenging for organizations since research studies were first put into formal practice during the 1920s.  Evolution demands this process be made faster and easier, and SSI today introduced a new online interactive survey capabilities demo to allow anyone who needs survey design and programming to explore the company’s capabilities anytime and anywhere.

With today’s announcement, SSI sets a new standard for survey programming expertise having completed tens of thousands of programming projects during the past three years.  To achieve high engagement designs and save money in the process, SSI provides a team of more than 150 survey programmers.  This team allows SSI customers to outsource programming needs and increase turnaround times anywhere in the world.

“SSI’s programming services are considered the gold standard for creative and interactive survey building, and we take our responsibility to deliver continuous improvement and innovation very seriously,” said Mark Slobbe, SSI’s senior vice president of global operations.  “Unlike some other online demos, the SSI Survey Capabilities Demo blows the competition away.  It’s more than a showcase.  In fact, our demo allows users to search for functionality and pick those SSI tools they would like to use.  It then allows users to see what tools are mobile friendly.”

Today’s surveys need to be 100-percent mobile friendly as a fast-growing number of people try to take surveys on mobile devices.  SSI’s new Survey Capabilities Demo was created to help customers visualize various survey functions in an intuitive format.  This new tool allows anyone to see what SSI can program without going through a linear survey or speaking with a sales person.

“If you’re looking to create customized survey questions tailored to your specific needs, SSI is well-versed in all the latest multi-mode survey design techniques,” explained Slobbe.  SSI’s team works closely with each customer to fully understand their country-specific objectives and expectations for each project.  This coordination and experience nets better quality data from panel respondents and makes global market research studies much easier to complete.

SSI has offered survey programming and hosting solutions for decades, delivering innovative survey designs across all modes with a focus on mobile first.  Upon request, SSI can have representatives available 24/7 to help customers meet deadlines and guide the project through completion.

SSI’s end-to-end programming and hosting services include telephone and internet data collection, survey hosting, coding, data cleaning and validation, advanced analytics and summaries, and custom online reporting.  Every survey SSI programs is run through extensive survey testing and data verification as part of the SSI quality control process.  SSI Survey Score, a proprietary, automated diagnostic tool, further checks for issues like mobile-friendly design and compatibility across multiple technology platforms and displays to ensure respondent engagement and optimal in-field performance.
