Are you in need of a simple way of distributing surveys to e.g. your
customers or your personnel? Are there many surveys to be sent? Is it many
questions and with that many answers to be registered and gathered? In that
case has Pepto Systems developed a tool for making this process much easier for
EasySurveyor is a tool for creating and
publishing surveys on the web. The surveys is created and designed in the
administrative tool and could then be accessed and filled in by the user from
the web in the form of a dynamic website.
The system is well suited for most kinds of surveys,
such as surveys intended for your customers or personnel, health surveys
or market analyses. The surveys is yours to design, according to the needs
and purpose and to your fancy, creating question groups with question
alternatives, such as radio buttons, check boxes, combo boxes or text answers.
The appearance of the survey is determined by the pictures, colors and
fonts chosen from design. You are also able to add help contexts wherever extra
clarification is needed.
Further advantages that comes with EasySurveyor is the ability to
check if all questions has been answered by the user before all of the answers
is saved to the database. This prevents incomplete answered
surveys. Naturally, you can state a question to be non-compulsory when creating
the survey. The system offers to create a user connected to a person, and thus
restrict the user to answer the survey only once and also control if and when
the survey has been filled in. Alternatively is the possibility to create a
so-called anonymous user. These users are not connected to a specific person and
could be represented by a group of people. There is no restriction of the number
of times this kind of user is allowed to complete a survey. For example,
one anonymous user could be represented by all customers in a grocery store
asked to fill in a customer survey.
All answers are saved directly to a
database and therefore nor manual work or paper work is no longer needed. This
is a quite large advantage, since there is no considerable increased load of
work to distribute and gather an extensive survey, compared to a
less extensive one. All users and answers is stored in the database, and
therefore keeping statistics on e.g. the answers, users answered and users not
answered and answer date is quite simple.
The surveys could either be
distributed as a link inside an e-mail or from the company homepage at the
The administrative tool
A logical structure of
folders containing surveys is created in the administrative tool. This
structure resembles the Explorer in Windows in appearance and functionality. It
is quite easy to create new surveys, either as a blank one, from a Wizard
or as inherited from an existing survey.
By marking a survey in the tree view and choose edit
status, the survey is opened for design. In the design view it is possible
to create and design the survey from the beginning to the end. Naturally, you
can also modify and expand a survey already started or inherited.
The tree view shows the structure and contents of the survey. From here
you are able to create/delete pages, question groups and questions. The page
marked in the tree view is shown on the edit side including all its headers,
question groups and questions. From the edit side you can also define the answer
type for the question group, such as radio button or check box, and list its
question alternatives. You can also change the color, background color and font
for all texts and headings. Editing of the text is possible from the tree view
as well as from the edit side.
The web survey
The survey is created from the administrative tool, is shown to the user at
the Internet in the form of a dynamic web site. The website retrieves the
structure of the survey from the database and displays it in a user friendly way.
When the user has completed all questions the answers are finally stored in the
data base for further analyze.
