Used to gain insight from customers, employees or a community, surveys provide significant value to businesses and organisations across many different industries.
Surveys enable you to better understand the opinions, behaviours and needs of a large, targeted group of people. They can address almost any issue, problem or metric relating to a product or service, a workplace’s culture or productivity level, or community issue. As well as helping understand user’s actions, surveys also allow you to understand the reasons for those actions, such as why customer’s shop certain ways, or why employee satisfaction is trending up or down.
Survey feedback is crucial information that can then be used to make decisions to improve your organisation.
Many types of information can be collected through enterprise survey software, whether using mobile, paper or online surveys, which can benefit a wide variety of industries.
