Vancouver – A significant upgrade will soon be available for Techneos® Entryware™  mobile survey software, opening up new capabilities for mobile research. Featuring a new survey engine for Windows Mobile® devices, this July 8th release will also provide an enhanced user experience for conducting mobile surveys on Windows® 98/XP/Vista, Palm OS® and webOS™ devices.
The Entryware platform for mobile research handles long, complex questionnaires with ease, enabling sophisticated consumer feedback on mobile devices ranging from entry level PDAs to the latest Smartphones and Windows-based Netbooks. With support for over 200 languages, Entryware software is ideal for face-to-face interviews, mystery shopping and diary studies.
Building on the unique notification system and scripting language already used by some of the world’s leading research organizations, the new release of Entryware software provides new capabilities to support self-completed research such as consumer diaries. Photo support and “lockdown” mode, already available for Entryware customers on Palm OS devices, are now available on Windows Mobile as well, allowing researchers to turn a wide range of PDAs and Smartphones into personal survey appliances. Enhanced project automation is also provided to simplify the user experience for self-completed surveys.
Other capabilities of the upcoming Entryware upgrade include: improved look and feel of the surveys, including high-resolution graphics for Windows Mobile VGA screens, and 5-way navigation for quicker and easier movement through a survey.
“Techneos has been on the leading edge of mobile trends for well over a decade,” says Mark Cameron, co-founder of Techneos Systems. “Expanding our support to a broader range of Windows Mobile and Palm devices represents a direct response to our clients’ needs, and is an important piece of a very exciting product roadmap. Over the coming months, we will be announcing additional innovations that reaffirm our leadership in the mobile research space.”
