Introducing: My Reports Download

All it takes is one trip to the mall during the holiday season for me to realize that my patience level has decreased substantially.

With the increase of web-based communication, it is harder and harder to convince respondents that your survey is the one that is worth their time. This is a not a futile battle, however. With the Cvent software system, we...read more

Customization: How a little time can go a long way

Expression of self and individualism are highly encouraged traits. How boring would life be if we were all the exact same?

Contact Fields vs Survey Questions? That is the question

Question placement is an important component of the survey creation process.  When and where you ask a question could impact what response your respondents are willing to give.  Likewise, determining whether respondents should enter the information into the Contact Profile or answer it as a question...read more
