If you are unsure whether your project is suitable for touchscreen research, please ask. 


What type of touchscreen units are best for my research project?

Tablet PCs are well suited to projects such as:

  • Live events that have a limited time i.e. a one day event
  • Interviewers are available to engage potential respondents
  • A random sample is required i.e. interviewers can approach every 5th person
  • Research is outdoors without a source of power i.e. sports ground research
Touchcomputers are well suited to projects such as:
  • Competition or voting database collection when up to 8 touchcomputers are set up in one place
  • Touchscreen unit is to be placed on the desk at reception i.e. in a medical centre
  • Freight costs for kiosks are too expensive
Kiosks are well suited to projects such as:
  • Self-administered research where high visibility is important i.e. in a library, museum, gym, cafe or retail when the customer makes the decision to provide feedback
  • At an event where you have access to power and you can have a number of kiosks set up together and only one person to refer respondents to the survey
  • In a reception area i.e. a medical centre

When would you use our touchscreen and online research service?

Having the option of using two sources of data collection provides the opportunity to increase both your sample size and the type of respondent you reach. 

For instance a council recently used online surveys to reach rural respondents and placed touchscreen PCs in their main centres.  This gave them a platform to reach customers in both rural and urban areas.

Frequently at events we use touchscreen units to gather a database, i.e. through a competition.  Post event the database is used to gather feedback from attendees via an online survey.

Touchscreen research could be used at a show to gather attendee feedback and an online survey sent to the exhibitor database post-show.


What support does TSMR provide when I purchase Digivey software?

TSMR is here to help and is a phone call or email away to answer any questions and offer advice.

 Digivey clients often ask our assistance in setting up their first project which they later clone and refine for later projects.

TSMR also offers an affordable monthly results service for Digivey clients who prefer to have their research results formatted and emailed to their inbox each month.
