Snap survey software continues to push the boundaries as a comprehensive survey tool for building questionnaires, collecting data, and publishing analyses and reports online and offline.

We are committed to providing our users with the highest levels of security for their data:

  • Our hosted systems run at ISO 27001 certified datacentres located in the UK with secured physical access and CCTV monitoring.
  • All survey data is encrypted at rest – both on our servers and on mobile interviewing devices running our Snap Mobile Anywhere app.
  • All communications with our servers is secure (via https / SSL) by default.

Snap’s extensive questionnaire tools enable the construction of online, mobile, kiosk, and paper questionnaires in any language. Snap can publish adaptive questionnaires automatically choosing the appropriate edition depending on the size of the screen the respondent is using. They can incorporate sliders, star rating scales, click maps, video, and audio to stimulate respondents and ensure they remain engaged. Snap Mobile Anywhere is our specialised interviewing tool for field interviewers to collect data on Apple, Android, and Windows devices and continue interviewing even in signal blackspots.

New, powerful online and desktop Smart Reports enable researchers to distribute customised detailed reports including tailored narratives to a wide range of stakeholders. Stakeholders can be given logins to enable them to view online reports specialised to the viewer – for example, the manager of the northern division sees a report of northern activity where the manager of the southern division sees a report of southern activity. | | Twitter @SnapSurveys
