GDPR – The New Normality and the Impact on the Survey Marketplace

What inspired us to develop a GDPR compliance tool for survey authors

So, the “GDPR Day” has come and gone, the world hasn’t ended, and I’m still getting emails from people I expect to (and a few that I don’t), but many seem to be privacy policy updates and I can always unsubscribe.

Some cookie alert and privacy messages seem a little more sophisticated than before but, in many respects, the new GDPR world doesn’t feel much different to the pre-GDPR world right now.

Increase online survey response rates across all mobile devices

adaptive19% of all online surveys are now completed on a mobile device.*

Recent research has shown that online survey completion rates are declining as many questionnaires are still optimised for PC screens. This can mean that online questionnaires don’t format correctly on smaller devices such as smartphones and tablets, making viewing and completing more difficult.

In our latest software release 11.07, we’ve introduced adaptive online questionnaires. Whatever device a participant chooses to complete an online survey on, smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC, Snap’s adaptive technology displays a version of the questionnaire optimised for the screen size detected.

You can also optimise the design, content and length of online surveys to suit a range of different devices.
