Real E-Mail and Zip Code Validation for Surveys

Why don’t more survey software packages offer zip code validation or real e-mail address validation? I don’t just mean syntax validation — anyone can offer that (although it is interesting that not everyone does). I mean real zip code validation where the postal code is looked up in a database or an e-mail address is tested as soon as it is entered to verify that it is real. It seems that both of these features would be easy to implement and would be of much use to the client.

Is SurveySoftwareReviews.com a sham sponsored by Prezza Technologies to Promote Prezza Checkbox Survey Software?

It would appear that SurveySoftwareReviews.com is published — or at least sponsored by — Prezza Technologies to promote Prezza Checkbox Survey software using fake reviews of Checkbox and competitors. I have a number of Google alerts set up to help me keep up to date with new research related stuff on the web. I was going through…

SPSS Promotes Self By Trash Talking Internet Survey Research

SPSS recently put out a news release (which has been picked up by at least two news sites CRM Today and TMCnet) whose sole purpose appears to be to scare companies away from using the plethora of survey research tools in favor of their multi-modal survey system. How can you begin to know what your customers are thinking, reasons…
