The Online Surveys Service allows you to create, publish, and manage surveys.
The service is provided by means of Qualtrics Insight Platform - a powerful enterprise-class survey system.
Survey Administrators use a web browser to create and manage their surveys. Survey Respondents can complete their Qualtrics-delivered surveys via a web browser on a Windows/Mac computer, or via their smartphone, tablet or other mobile device. Respondent data collected via the surveys can be analyzed within Qualtrics with its extensive analysis and reporting tools and also exported for more indepth analysis if required in tools such as Excel, SPSS and SAS.
