Survey Development Environments

Dedicated and specialised survey design tools are often referred to as Survey Development Environments (SDEs). Normally this type of software has a survey design component for the desktop, notebook or tablet PCs and a survey data collection module for handheld devices such as pocket PCs.

The Modern Trend

Asset management companies, facilities management companies, local government and independent surveyors are leaning towards using these specialised survey design tools rather than develop their own in-house systems. The main reason is cost - an in-house bespoke development can cost over £100K, whereas a typical survey development environment costs as little as £3,000. Here is one popular example of the features of a typical SDE.

Benefits of an SDE

  • Save time and money by replacing outdated paper based data collection systems with modern handheld computers.
  • Can be used for any kind of mobile data collection requirement. This can be as diverse as property management, housing management or asset management in the construction, education and health care industries. Any organisation with a mobile data collection requirement can benefit from the flexibility and power of an SDE.
  • Gives the user the power to create large complex surveys without the need for technical expertise. It is the modern alternative to costly and hard to maintain bespoke solutions.
  • React quickly to changing legislation. Surveys can often be produced in a few hours!
  • You can organise your surveys into manageable parts using groups of questions.
  • A full range of question types, including barcode, sketch, camera, calculations, single and multi-select menus, and referencing external data such as schedule of rates are often supported.
  • Seamless Internet communications enable the remote worker. It enables surveys to be carried out away from the main office, and for the collected data to be sent via the Internet back to the office within minutes.
  • Avoids the laborious task of re-keying data from paper forms, resulting in a faster turnaround of work and better management information.
