Survey & Form Design Services

There are many elements to the implementation of a successful data capture system. The most important, yet most commonly over looked, is the survey form design.

Many organisations see other businesses using data capture forms and use the logic / template to design their own versions, however, forms MUST be designed with the actual software solution proposed, very much in mind.

Each and every data capture software solution on the market uses a number of different capture engines, to read and decipher the data. A form designed for one system could prove to be a complete failure if used with another.

Most businesses find that their form design is the problem only after their system has been installed, investments have been made and testing is undertaken prior to go live. This can cause massive delays in the project implementation and impact greatly on the project costs.


At Cleardata we use data capture software within our own scanning bureau each and every day, so understand from the user’s perspective, how crucial it is to get the form right first time.

Failure to do so results in huge amounts of user intervention to correct forms that have been miss-read. Negating the benefits that the proposed system was supposed to bring and extending ROI calculations used to justify the initial investment of intelligent data capture.

Cleardata’s forms design service is provided in consultation with the software engineers who install and support our intelligent capture systems. The company will ensure that the proposed form design meets your needs as a business and is conducive with high data capture rates.
