Face to Face interviewing is also known as Halltest. It is a way of collecting answers from respondents by bringing a laptop to the location where respondents can most easily be reached and then asking them in person while inserting the answers to the laptop. The challenge is that these laptops will normally be offline and thus creates a need for synchronizing questionnaires and collected data between server and client. Face to Face Interviewing is normally administered by the System Administrator.

Using a combination of monitor sites, dynamic diagrams and dashboards we can give the end clients the possibility to do advanced analysis on their data themselves. This includes various diagram types where user can set things like time line, products, filters, target groups, comparison filters and much more. The diagram types available are tracking, comparison, single, campaign, and cross. Dashboards further make it possible to make completely new dynamic visualizations and interpretations of data. Such dynamic reports and sites will normally be set up by a Report Creator.
Features Support

Finally the system is focusing on ensuring that any piece of data is only shown to those for whom the information was meant. All of these focus areas have resulted in a highly configurable environment enabling managers to create the exact environment that will suit their company’s needs and requirements.
