Techneos Upgrades Entryware Mobile Survey Solution

Techneos Systems has announced an upgrade for its Entryware mobile survey software. Techneos says the upgrade, which will be released on 8 July, will open up new capabilities for mobile research. It features a new survey engine for Windows Mobile devices, and also provides an enhanced user experience for conducting mobile surveys on Windows 98/XP/Vista, Palm OS and webOS devices.
Techneos says the Entryware platform 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 can be used for face-to-face interviews, mystery shopping and diary studies.
Building on the notification system and scripting language already used by some of the worlds 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 supported to simplify the user experience for self-completed surveys.
Other features include an improved look and feel for 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 Techneos Systems Co-founder, Mark Cameron. 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.
Techneos mobile survey software is used by companies in over 50 countries to conduct questionnaires on a wide range of mobile phones, PDAs, Ultra Mobile PCs, Tablet PCs and laptops. The companys Entryware and SODA software platforms can be licensed as stand-alone systems that integrate into the customers technology infrastructure, and are also available as a hosted, software-as-a-service offering.
