Nfield CAPI is a powerful platform for conducting face-to-face interviews on mobile Android devices. It has built-in support for all common face-to-face fieldwork methods, from joint quota surveys conducted at one location to random walk surveys conducted at many locations. Nfield CAPI supports secure sharing of devices between interviewers. It even supports interviewers securely using the same device to work for multiple market research companies.
Your CAPI interviewers are able to work on almost any kind of Android tablet or phone using the Nfield CAPI app. This app can be downloaded from Google Play and in China from 360 Mobile Assistant. The Nfield CAPI app includes all the functionality your interviewers need to select the right respondent and to conduct the interview
. The captured data is encrypted and securely stored to assure confidentiality. To prevent interviewers from getting stuck in field because there is no connectivity, interviewing in Nfield CAPI is done without any need for an internet connection. Instead your interviewers synchronize with the Nfield cloud for central data-storage and analysis.
Your central fieldwork team will manage and monitor fieldwork in real-time via an online portal. In this portal they can set up and deploy surveys. They also get immediate access to data uploaded by interviewers. What happens in field is completely transparent, meaning your staff have all the tools to deliver according to schedule.
Imagine an online interviewing platform that can deal with any interviewing volume you throw at it. That serves questionnaires to your respondents which are optimized for the devices in use. And that never breaks down. That system is Nfield Online.
Its high-volume architecture is designed to self-heal and to handle over 100,000 simultaneous live interviews. Nfield Online recognizes the device a respondent is using and adapts the questionnaire layout accordingly (or not if you do not want it to). To set up, deploy and manage surveys in Nfield Online your fieldwork staff uses the same online portal as Nfield CAPI. They have immediate access to data that is collected via the system, so what happens in field is completely transparent.
