The following processes are in support of the data collection methods:
Back Checks (Field Interviews)
This is a quality check which ensures interviews are done fairly, honestly and interviewers were professional and knowledgeable. Back checks are done on 25% of each Interviewers work, of which 10% is personal back checks where the Back checker goes into Field to do the Back check and 15% is Telephonic back checks whereby a Back Checker calls the respondent to do the back check. For each study there is a Back check Questionnaire setup, this is used by the Back Checker.
This a check that is done on all questionnaires once interview is completed to check that all the questions are filled in according to spec and the questionnaire is corrected before goes to Coding and Capturing. There is an Editing instructions document that is created which needs to be followed by each Editor. Once Editing is completed, a check is done on 10% of each Editors work, this is to make sure that they are following the in structions document and there are no errors on their work.
this process is done to summarize the Open ended data. A codeframe (summa rized list of codes) is created for all Open ended questions which is used by each Coder. 10% of each Coders work is checked to ensure that they are following the codeframe and are using the correct codes
All data on questionnaire is captured according to a Capturing Master that is created. A double capture/ data verification is done to check that everything is captured according to capturing master.
Both data captured files are run against a Check Edit to make sure that the data is error free and ready for data analysis. Final check is done before Final Data is produced. This check is done by running Frequencies and Holecounts on Prefinal data. Once data is error free, Final Data is exported in the required format (i.e. SPSS, .dat, .dta or .csv) and ready for reporting, creating powerpoint presentation or sending to client. Experience on Quantum.
Powerpoint Presentation/ Reports/ Transcripts
Spell and Grammar checks are done before sending to client or before presentation is done to client.
These are actual Open ended responses that are captured into either Excel or Word and sent to Client upon their request. Spell and Grammar checks are done be fore sending to client.

Concept testing surveys are for reaching launch decisions and improving concepts before wasting time on business planning or risking large investments. This will help make a decision whether to launch a product/ business. This will help SME’s and Entrepreneurs.
Virtual Shelf/Packaging Tests in Context:
Assess products in a competitive context. Will have a shelf with different products or packaging design, respondents will then choose which will have a greater impact on share. Will they have equal recognition from a distance or close range. Will they be equally appealing? Will it matter if you make use of a cheaper or expensive packaging?
Awareness, Usage and Attitude:
Studies provide awareness, usage and attitude of products already on the market.
This is useful in improving existing products or generating new product concepts. Also assists in brand positioning.
Package Design Survey
Package designs and labels should be unique and linked to a specific brand. This will attract recognition. Your designs will be compared to competitor designs thus boosting awareness and sales. If product is priced right and have a unique attractive package this will attract consumers thus increasing sales.

We do surveys comparing client brand against competitor brands. This identifies competitor weaknesses and helps strengthen client brands.

This helps the employees to voice their opinion of the company, management, job satisfaction and how to improve on the negative sectors. This can be done unanimously. Results are then projected overall in the form of graphs, reports, powerpoint presentations.
