PDA Surveys / Handheld Surveys / CAPI

Small, light PDAs are ideal for conducting in-person interviews at malls, amusement parks, movie theaters and other locations. The Survey System's PDA Module offers superior features for conducting both simple and complex interviews on Windows-based Pocket PC handheld computers.

You can use either standalone PDAs or PDAs connected to the Web.  Transfer questions and answers to and from standalone PDAs using a docking station or transfer files via email. The Survey System automatically combines data from multiple handhelds.  The number of questions in a survey and the number of interviews that can be conducted are limited only by the PDA's available storage.  View an animated sample offline PDA survey.

PDA Web interviews use the Internet Module in combination with the PDA Module to create online questionnaires that are optimized for handheld computers' small screen size and sometimes slow connections.  See Web survey software for a description of online surveys or view a sample PDA Web survey.


A combination data collection option lets you run a survey in standalone mode, but then send a copy of the data to a Web site for live reports.  This combination mode is ideal when you want centralized data collection, but your PDAs have Internet connections that are too slow for showing questions.

As part of a comprehensive survey software solution, The Survey System's PDA questionnaires offer sophisticated questionnaire logic features.  These features mean higher quality data.  After you collect your data, you can produce more impressive tables, charts and text reports than you can with other packages.  You can even produce reports online.

Another benefit of this comprehensive solution is that you enter your question and answer choice text and any logic instructions only once. Then you can use them for PDA interviews (CAPI), Web page surveys,  email surveys, paper questionnaires and telephone interviews.
