VuPoint Research: Spanish Language Services
Traditional research markets have grown more culturally diverse, and every sign shows this trend continuing if not accelerating. VuPoint Research can help you address this ever-growing research sector. We can provide you with translations for a variety of uses, including questionnaires, online surveys, letters, email and faxes. We can also help with project briefings and field management.
Phone and Online Studies in Spanish
Our streamlined process makes fielding calls to your Spanish-speaking demographic easy and efficient. Telephone interviewers in our Las Cruces call center collect data in Spanish with the same efficiency as in English. Well-trained, they work with the most current technologies, including programs that let users toggle between English and Spanish, depending on respondent needs. And they're led by field and site managers who appreciate your need for accurate, complete and timely surveys.
Whether conducting your survey by phone or online, we also make sure that your survey instrument is complete and sound before it hits the field. Before programming, we thoroughly review your questionnaire, looking for any red flags or omissions in advance, then working with you to resolve them.
We can convert your open-ends into usable information using tools that provide you with fast, accurate and reliable data in English or Spanish.

VuPoint Research: Open-End Response Coding
Richly detailed open-ended responses are a hallmark of great survey research.
But analyzing them and unleashing the power of what your respondents are telling you can be tiresome and tedious.
That's why VuPoint Research has geared its coding process to make it an easier process for you.
Our coding team turns your respondents' open-ended responses into useable, meaningful information, shortening the timetable from data collection to actionable results.
During phone-based studies, our coding specialists work in the middle of our production floor, where they can communicate regularly with our supervisory teams to improve the quality of data collection as it happens. Our interviewers receive immediate feedback that helps improve the quality of the responses they collect on subsequent surveys.
Prefer online studies? VuPoint Research can provide you with cost-effective coding solutions. Our web team can build a code frame from scratch or work with one you've already developed to help efficiently roll up responses for analysis.
Contact us to learn more about how our coding processes and solutions can help you learn what you need to know to make good business and organizational decisions.
VuPoint Research: Mobile Interviewing
The proliferation of cell phones has spurred countless social changes. It's also made telephone market research that much more challenging.
VuPoint Research is up to that challenge, understanding the unique factors in creating and executing quality research where mobile technology is involved. We understand the impact of mobile dialing regulations, and we have the interviewing experience to help you understand the effect this segment will have on your overall quota distribution.
Whether your project requires wireless phones exclusively or merely augments a landline study, we can provide valuable information about the quantity of sample records needed to achieve your goal, reducing total project costs.
