ASC Sponsors

About our Sponsors:

Simplicity is complexity well done.  We and our clients have this in common: we all believe that Askia has the best market research software in the industry. And the best support team behind it. Software is only one component of the offering. Our software range has been evolving thanks to the drive of our clients, industry leaders by their size or their willingness to adopt new technologies.

We offer easy to use yet sophisticated questionnaire design; for data collection, we provide telephone, mobile, web, face-to-face and multi-modal options, each available via the same powerful administration platform; our data processing and delivery products are spearheaded by online and offline statistical analysis tools. If you include our APIs and our Panel & Community management platform, Platform One, then you have a grasp on what Askia is all about!

Everything comes with a straightforward and beautiful interface that you can find your way around in minutes. Simplicity is complexity well done. | | Twitter @askiasoftware

At Gide we believe in the data. Data is what we do. Whether through our expert consultancy or through the provision of SCROLL® – our software as a service – we get results. Here’s how:

Established in 1995, Gide works from London, Nantes and Paris. Our market and social research professionals are fluent in web technologies, data processing and statistical analysis as well as a wide range of tools including:

  • Unicom Data Collection Suite
  • Blaise Quantum
  • SPSS, SAS and R Tableau and R Shiny.

All good stuff. But if the cap doesn’t fit, we don’t wear it.

Our resilient and proven open-source technology stack (Linux, Apache, PostgreSQL and MongoDB) gives us options. We’re also rather good with XML and associated technologies, having embraced them since their inception. That gives us agility. And, regardless of a project’s size or complexity (we’ve worked with some of Government’s largest datasets), our collaborative approach means we’re ready to put this flexibility to work.

So, today, you’ll find Gide’s own products used in many countries – including Iran and China – testament to our diverse experience, technological acumen and to our enduring commitment.

Gide is a member of MRS, ESOMAR and, of course, ASC.
