Features Benefits
No Setup – eCOMPAS staff will transform your survey instrument(s) into professional on-line surveys No need to have to fiddle with survey builders. Our staff does the work for you

Raw Data Download – Data is available in raw format (Excel) in real-time to administrators Minor tweaking of wording is common, and eCOMPAS allows non-technical staff to tweak the wording prior to survey launch
Visual Analytics- Data is also reportable, graphically using the eCOMPAS Visual Analytics system Skip logic is embedded into the question flow, so clients and field workers never have to read complex skip logic again. The system does all the work for them resulting in more valid surveys being collected, shorter survey time, less field worker training, and less frustration
Editable Wording – Wording of questions can be tweaked by survey administrators through web-based administration, and can “lock” the survey so no further edits can occur One innovative use of this web-based method is to not stop the client satisfaction surveying after the collection period, but instead to make the client satisfaction survey available as needed. This provides rolling, ongoing client satisfaction data to be collected each day/week/month, giving a more real-time view of your population’s experiences
