Scanning

“Fast, Accurate, Economical and Automated Data Collection” Scanning is the most efficient data collection method for large paper studies—it’s fast, accurate and economical. Our trained research professionals understand your research goals, monitor the electronic processes, and deliver the best data possible. We can handle all your paper surveys, process coded and non-coded responses and deliver verbatims in the format you specify. Although special forms aren’t necessary, you can obtain even better results when you take advantage of our survey design services. We can improve an existing questionnaire, or work with you from the beginning to optimize the scannability of your present form. Our advanced software and hardware works to your specifications: automatic recoding and data cleaning are easily integrated during scanning. Our ability to perform Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR), Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) enables us to guarantee the highest quality results. Quick verbatim images, sorted in any sequence, give you fast and complete feedback in easy-to-read formats. Quality control is what sets TAG apart. We don’t believe in unattended data entry. Instead, our experienced personnel monitor low-confidence input and intervene with intelligent decisions, maximizing usable data. While it’s certainly true that automation does things faster and more economically, it’s our knowledgeable and conscientious staff that sets us apart.
