Mobile Surveys

The cost effective way to run quick and easy snapshot surveys

Oxygen8’s Mobile Survey solution allows organisations to send surveys to a mobile phone within minutes and is ideal for quick opinion gathering and short surveys. Oxygen8’s Direct Control Mobile platform can create interactive surveys using SMS, mobile web and automated voice that enables customers to provide feedback and opinions instantly using automated communication. Responses are automatically recorded by Oxygen8’s online reporting system, allowing you to easily view and analyse them.

No development time or complex APIs are required. Simply configure a survey in our messaging platform and schedule. Alternatively you can utilise our client services team to help build your survey.
