How to enhance the respondent experience

Respondent-centric surveys

Let’s face it – there are still way too many boring questionnaires around. They can take so long to complete – some make Tolstoy’s War & Peace look like a tweet! These types of surveys can lose a respondent to our industry for months, if not years. We all know this. We see people speaking out about this at every conference and summit, but still we see the tedious surveys.  But we at Askia are not going to give up: so this is another call to arms to apply the advice we provide to our Market Research clients on how to enhance the user experience & how to be more respondent-centric:  Engage with the respondent  Simplify the process  Decrease…

Talkin’ bots an’ revolution

Talkin bots an revolution

A visit to the ESOMAR congress is a sure way to know what’s the next fad or major shift in Market Research. And in September, I counted 4 papers about chat bots. As a proud supporter of the ASC, I am going to point out that the first good paper I saw at a MR conference was at the May 2017 day conference by Simon Neve of Wizu fame. I am not usually afraid of jumping on the bandwagon but in that same conference, Chris Davison and I…

Askiaface: moving forward

Askiaface for iOS & Android moving forward

In order for us to continue maintaining and improving our face-to-face iOS and Android apps, we continually need to update the components upon which these are built; namely the base SDKs provided by Apple and Google. Of course, this implies that we sometimes also need to drop support for older versions of these development tools. Either because maintaining them is time-consuming or because of breaking changes introduced in subsequent platform updates. We have therefore decided to drop support for such obsolete mobile OS versions. Here’s the breakdown: iOS…
