Collection & PO box management

We always take the time to discuss every fine detail of your data capture project. With an internal fleet of collection vehicles, we can arrange the uplift and transportation of your existing archive to Storetec’s production centre.

For on-going campaigns, we can set-up and manage a dedicated PO box for your customers to continually return surveys/forms too.

Manual & automated capture

When commencing the data capture project, we will initially digitise your form or survey into an electronic image, for example, PDF or TIFF. Following this, will we utilise advanced OCR and ICR technologies to extract key data. 

As we employ both manual and automated capture services, we can extract data from any type of question style on your forms and surveys. For example multiple-choice, rating scale, Likert scale, matrix, demographic and even open-ended questions.

Form and survey design services

To maximise the amount of data we’re able to capture, we always advise clients to use our form/survey design service. We will advise your research team on the best form design and type of questions to collate a variety of data.

Designing the form or survey before distribution will also speed up the data capture project as data to extracted will be pre-defined. This is ideal for companies who are considering starting a research project whereby completed surveys and forms are returned over a defined period of time.
