Services we offer as part of Survey And Questionnaire Data Entry Services:
Survey Requirement Analysis Services: Before we begin developing a survey, we connect with the stakeholders to identify the issues at hand. It is important to clarify and document the purpose of the survey and formulate its goals. We take note of the resources at hand, the budget considerations and move to the next step of designing the survey.
Survey Design Services: This is one of the most important aspects of the survey lifecycle and a well designed survey can reap most fruitful results. It extracts the most out of the intended target and is easier to analyze. We have highly skilled and specialized professionals designated for this all important task. We develop adequately written questionnaires that produce valid and reliable demographic results. We can formulate questionnaires of four different types, namely:
1: Contingency question: A question that is answered only if the respondent gives a particular response to a previous question. This avoids asking questions of people that do not apply to them.
2: Matrix Questions: Identical response categories are assigned to multiple questions. The questions are placed one under the other, forming a matrix with response categories along the top and a list of questions down the side. This is an efficient use of page space and respondents’ time.
3: Close Ended Questions: Respondents’ answers are limited to a fixed set of responses.
- Yes Or No Questions: The respondent answers with a “yes” or a “no”.
- Multiple Choice: The respondent has several option from which to choose.
- Scaled Questions: Responses are graded on a continuum
4: Open Ended Questions: No options or predefined categories are suggested. The respondent supplies their own answer without being constrained by a fixed set of possible responses.
Survey Implementation Services: The next step is to ensure that the questions created in the previous step reaches the intended audience. There are four ways to do this.

Analysis of the Survey Results: Now that the survey has been designed and has reached the intended audience. It is time to capture data from these questionnaires.
