The story of iziSurvey is rather interesting. The whole idea of it came when a former Political Science instructor at University of Kentucky, Professor Ridvan Peshkopia, and a technology entrepreneur and a former Computer Science Professor at St John’s University, New York, Mergim Cahani, met while they were teaching at Universum College in Kosovo, Europe’s newest country. They were soon joined by Alejtin Berisha, College’s CEO and a major figure in the entrepreneurship development in Kosovo and Edi Demaj, an entrepreneur and business executive from Detriot, Michigan.
“We wanted to develop a problem solving and a user friendly survey platform for our internal use, which incorporated features not found elsewhere. The software was developed by Phronesis Technologies, a leading software development company. However, after the first version, we saw a big potential for its commercialization” said Mergim Cahani, CEO of iziSurvey. He added, “The market reaction was promising. The feedback from several major companies and universities who tried the initial version of iziSurvey was incredible. That is why we committed our energies and built the very competitive iziSurvey platform. This platform has already collected over half a million survey responses!”
iziSurvey is registered and has an office in Metro Detriot, Michigan (US) where the company also received a non-disclosed financial funding from the area, while part of the engineering team still remains in Kosovo.
It is a tool that would serve researchers in various academic disciplines, as well as big and small companies involved in the data collection and research. Data gathering is achieved through mobile devices while operating independent of internet connectivity i.e., can work online and offline, whereas survey management, survey creation, detailed reporting and exporting, is done on iziSurvey.com portal.
Users can easily design their own survey by using various question types. The user designs the survey through the Survey Management tool found on iziSurvey.com, and then downloads the survey to their device(s) that he/she will use to conduct the survey. Users can then upload data collected from the device to the website, export them to Microsoft Excel format, or view visual analytics and charts.
In addition to the common features of a standard survey platform, iziSurvey also offers its unique random digit dialing (RRD) technology for cellphone surveying and, with the help of a headset, makes possible to easily fill the questionnaire on the same device from where the interviewer is calling.
Further, in order to minimize the negative effect of answers by distracted respondents (often they pick the first or the last choice from a list of optional responses offered by the questionnaire), iziSurvey offers a randomly reshuffled order of response options for each question in the questionnaire. iziSurvey also supports highly advanced conditional questions. The platform currently supports all Android devices, but is expected to have iPhone, iPad, Windows, and web support in the next couple of months.
With over 40 years of team’s industry experience and the growing need for data collection, iziSurvey is on the early stages of becoming a competitive product in the industry.
