UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper, part of the suite of integrated UNICOM Intelligence products, provides you with a comprehensive solution for formatting paper questionnaires for scanning and keyboard data entry. Using UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper, you can format paper questionnaires quickly and easily, taking full advantage of the features of Word. You can include company logos, standard headers, footers, margins, page numbers, office-only information, and so on. With UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper, your paper questionnaire is not merely a series of questions; it is a complete document.
With UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper, you can design the formatting of the questionnaire and use these designs with multiple studies, all with little subsequent editing. Central to UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper are Looks and Word templates. Using Looks and templates, you can create a variety of designs. Looks control what information is included in the printed questionnaire and how that information is positioned and formatted. Templates control the basic structure of the document (for example, the page layout).
You can customize paper questionnaires for individual studies, save designs for future studies, and standardize designs across studies. In addition, you can create designs for both keyboard-based data entry systems and scanning-based systems.
If you have a study where you will scan the completed paper questionnaires, you can save even more time by using UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper/Scan Add-on.
