Electronic Data Capture has transformed the way we do market research, employment applications, customer data collection, and much more. This does not mean, however, that capturing data must be done with a webform or a computer-based kiosk. Sometimes a simpler and less expensive tool can do a better job.
DataBug is a simple electronic kiosk designed specifically for the data collection process. It is easily customized to capture exactly the data you need. Data is captured offline, encrypted, and stored temporarily in memory. On a customized schedule, it connects to the servers and transfers data to Landel, where it is decrypted, converted to standard XML, and made available for your secure retrieval over the web.
Questionnaires, surveys, applications and other electronic forms are downloaded remotely into the DataBug kiosks, allowing them to keep pace with your changing business needs.
On the entry side, your respondents will find it easier to enter data and answer questions than you ever thought possible. DataBug’s compact keyboard (yet with full-sized keys) and the backlit screen make data entry easy, while context-driven function keys placed around the display easily handle selection sets, such as yes-no or multiple choice.
On the output side, data is made available for you in simple XML format, so it’s easy to import into existing systems.
Whether your business is a Fortune 500 company with thousands of remote locations and a full central IT staff, or a small business using a browser and a spreadsheet, DataBug can help you get the data you need.
