VANCOUVER, May 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Techneos' Survey On Demand Application (SODA) celebrates a milestone which demonstrates market receptiveness to market research via mobile apps more in line with current consumer trends. The SODA market research mobile app is now collecting 10,000 photos, videos & GPS captures per day from both quantitative and qualitative projects in developed and emerging markets around the world.
Individual survey respondents download the app, which runs on all major mobile platforms such as Google's Android, Apple iOS, Blackberry's RIM, Symbian and Windows Mobile, and use the inherent features in their smartphones to capture and playback video, collect photos, GPS coordinates and other multimedia elements in a market research context. The data gives rich, validated and in-the-moment data to market researchers, which other methods have not been able to deliver, to help businesses make informed decisions.
"The high response rates we've seen on market research projects that use mobile apps have enabled us to offer our clients rich data almost immediately after the capture occurs." said Dave King, CEO at Techneos Systems Inc. "Once researchers have seen the benefits of collecting rich multimedia content, they have rapidly adopted this methodology to capture qualitative data on a quantitative scale. Our commitment to providing reliable and platform-agnostic mobile research solutions is evident by the 10,000 multimedia responses each day we capture across all platforms in more than 30 languages and in 54 countries. The market has embraced mobile market research and is participating in volumes."
