Time is running relentlessly...
Time is running relentlessly. During these days, we extended an absolutely unique contract with the Department of Methods and Techniques of Sociological Research of the Institute of Sociology of the University of Lodz, concluded nearly 10 years ago. This is, among other things, a continuation of a long-term didactic project: "CADAS Laboratory". As part of a carefully designed curriculum, students learn about the latest IT solutions in the field of survey research on the example of CADAS software.
Incoming traffic in CATI
It's worth checking new possibilities the CATI module ...
It is worth checking out the new capabilities of the CATI module of the CADAS system. Our autonomous CADAS CallServer telephony module which operates directly on the PostgreSQL system database (without data exchange with the database environment of the telecommunications service provider and without setting up special VPN channels in Home CATI) can now accept inbound connections from any telecom network. This means opening up new possibilities for telephone research on the behavior of buyers of goods and services in the CATI technology. This applies in particular to the automation of in-depth feedback contacts.
CADAS at INSUMMIT 2022
It was indeed...
It was indeed the biggest celebration of innovation in the market and opinion research industry to date. We couldn't couldn't refuse ourselves the excitement of self-presentation to an audience of 700 market experts, for whom we have been developing our software since 2004 keeping pace with the latest information technologies. We would like to thank the guests for numerous conversations at our stand, and the LSI Software company from the city of Łódź for providing a self-service device EK-2110 (Android) showing how CADAS surveys work in KIOSK mode.
CADAS Xplore is now mobile
This is very good news..
We have very good news for CX (Client Experience) experts. Presenting to authorized stakeholders the experiences of their customers when using the Xplore browser (according to indicators such as: Mystery Shopper, Net Promoter Score, Consumer Satisfaction Index, etc.) has gone beyond the barrier of availability on PCs or laptops only. A hassle-free yet super-secure authentication procedure allows you to remotely mine the allowed CX data using mobile devices from anywhere on the public network.
CADAS CAWI compatible with WCAG 2.1
The CADAS system allows you to publish surveys in accordance with the statutory WCAG 2.1 standard.
Together with the employees of the Warsaw City Hall, we developed a survey template and guidelines for publishing surveys in the CADAS survey system in accordance with the statutory WCAG 2.1 standard. All applications and websites run by public entities must be compatible with it. The Warsaw City Hall surveys are now available for people with manual disabilities as well as for those visually impaired. The content and structure of the questionnaires are clearer due to the use of appropriate contrast and font size. For the needs of the blind and visually impaired, we have additionally introduced support for the content reader. The entire survey can be operated from the keyboard. This makes it easier for any person with a manual disability or problems with using a mouse or touchpad in order to complete the form. Each survey is obligatorily provided with a link displaying the declaration of availability, which includes a description of the availability with detailed reservations.
Latest generation CADAS NetCATI survey module gives a particular advantage in pandemic circumstances for companies who use the CADAS release 5.0 survey system. They can easily and reliably impose the strictest CATI rigors (full supervision of 100% of procedures) in an extremely heterogeneous, dispersed and replaceable conglomerate of their own or independent subcontractors. Neither telephone research centres nor individual interviewers from the Home CATI networks need to be connected to the company's VPN network or worry about subscribing and billing phone calls. You can engage as many CATI field teams and hook up as many VoIP service providers as you find necessary (e.g. due to tariff zones to be covered within the area of field operations). For each home CATI terminal you need only: ordinary Windows PC/laptop with any browser for general use on board, USB head phone and internet connection for home use (asynchronous, with minimal bandwidth, without fixed IP). Any one call centre you would hire worldwide should meet with ease the CADAS NetCATI requirements.
It is hard to find a survey system offering more simplified, yet rigorous enforcement of scalable CATI operations (even with a transnational coverage). The architecture of the CADAS autonomous computing node, which supports the full set of MixMode survey modules, ensures fast remote installation of the entire system in any ICT environment, both in the global Amazon Web Service cloud and in any selected data center.
CADAS 5.0 faces COVID-19 restrictions
CADAS Survey System Release 5.0 proves particularly good suited
CADAS Survey System Release 5.0 proves particularly good suited for running survey projects in home isolation. Research that until now required close contact with respondents can only be continued if it is switched to remote reach of target groups. The CADAS system provides such switching without additional effort and without any compromise. With a few clicks you can switch the f2f (CAPI or MOBI) procedure to implementation of a remote contact (CATI or CAWI).
The real MixMode function works here. It secures automated switching between: NetCATI, IVR, CAWI, SMS, MOBI and CAPI survey modes in one survey session. This is due to deep integration of a multi-module, fully autonomous system controlled from one management application and supported by single tool for programming surveys.
CADAS is GDPR-Ready
Together with version 4.99 of the
Together with version 4.99 of the CADAS survey system, we provide both: unbeatable functionalities to protect people in relation to the processing of their personal data as well as considerable ease in complying with the strict regulations of the GDPR. We introduce thereby marking and automated masking of relevant fields in user interface tables. Users' access to data subject to protection is limited to the absolute minimum - without compromise for the convenience and efficiency of project services. A data registration function is also introduced in order to put many databases of respondents from various projects into one "central database". In addition to carrying out many projects on a shared basis, it gives the opportunity to use, according to one’s own invention, in need of new GDP rights of the data subjects (to: view, forget, transfer to another administrator, etc.).
CADAS Computing Node
For the purposes of the GIPA Group the
For the purposes of the GIPA Group, the CADAS Computing Node has been implemented in the AWS cloud. It is a remotely managed set of computing units and data storage and transfer services with a range as wide the network edge of the selected global cloud. It fully replaces the local ICT infrastructure, allowing tom implement a large CADAS survey system (including integrated telephony service) covering numerous centers for carrying out surveys (including callcenter) capable of transnational cooperation through a common management interface for all projects and a central operational repository. It is an innovative solution that allows for a significant reduction of infrastructure costs with a huge increase in data processing security and, at the same time, a drastic reduction of business risk.
CADAS Ready to Go
As a result of a multi-stage competition
As a result of a multi-stage competition between 351 companies from the European Union, CADAS was included in the group of 80 enterprises from the SME sector - the beneficiaries of this year's edition of the European Commission's "Ready2Go" export program. Beneficiaries receive financial and training assistance and the related recommendation when acquiring foreign partners from outside the European Union.
CADAS in MixMode
You can use in one project and even in one survey
You can use in one project, and even in one survey, all modules of the survey system (CAWI, CAPI, MOBI, CATI) with the aid of common procedures and functionalities: starting from a common script through a common database of respondents, common, amounts, common result set, up to a uniform export and a common repository of project auxiliary materials. During a single polling session, you can switch to a different method of polling repeatedly, for example by continuing a broken web survey with a telephone interview and then a f2f meeting with a CAPI or MOBI questionnaire.
The PTBRiO project supported by CADAS Focus Board.
Since 2010 it has become our custom, to regularly lend the CADAS CAWI system to the Polish Society for Opinion and Marketing Research (PTBRiO).
PTBRiO have been using it to conduct periodical customer opinion polls on market survey and opinion polling service providers. This year, we have expanded on this concept with an innovative application of the CADAS Focus Board software. It has been employed to attain the qualitative approach, in which source data acquisition is moved onto a web-based platform for moderated information exchange with respondents . This way new, unexplored options have been put to use in for focused stimulation and review of respondents ideas in explorative surveys, which can not be conducted using traditional approaches, such as Focus Group Interviews (FGI) and In-Depth Interviews (IDI).
