IDI's may be used as the core of a research project or as a preamble to quantitative research studies such as telephone or online surveys. These types of interviews usually last 30 to 60 minutes and require experienced research personnel to implement the interviewing process. FMR Solutions has developed vendor partners who have a great deal of experience fielding these types of interviews. These interviews can be conducted face-to-face or over the telephone at a prearranged time. The types of respondents we have interviewed include business owners, high-level executives, technicians, medical professionals, specialists and other types of professionals about complex and sensitive topics.

Mobile surveys open up totally new venues which are still mostly unexploited by many researchers. Mobile surveys can be combined with images / audio clips and videos taken and sent in by respondents using embedded cameras. Our survey platform can then collect these images automatically and link them with the survey responses.

Our software solution implements one of the most comprehensive device detection libraries with built-in support for over 2,500 mobile devices in over 8,000 different configurations. This provides you with unparalleled device compatibility not found in any other solution. Our mobile survey system is loaded with innovative features like automatic image / progress bar scaling to match the varying screen sizes and color depth configuration on different devices.

Our technology infrastructure supports WML, XHTML Mobile, XHTML and even via modular plugin iMode-compatible CHTML markup.
