Captricity for survey research
You want to be designing elegant studies, analyzing troves of data, and making new discoveries—not typing in surveys, managing data entry, and verifying outliers by hand. Captricity can quickly and cheaply help you turn those stacks of paper from the field into digital data that you can sort, search, and study.
Who uses Captricity?
A researcher looking to get more out of a data collection budget
A grad student who wants to spend more time analyzing and less time typing
A project manager who wants to create a dataset without shuffling papers and managing data entry workers

A new way to digitize your data
Until now, you’ve had to choose between doing data entry yourself— manually transcribing each field on each form—or hiring and supervising others to do it for you.
But outsourcing data entry for your entire project might not be feasible: hiring, training, and supervising data entry workers can be too time-intensive, and quality checks on the data (especially verifying individual values) are difficult and time-consuming. You also want your data to be as accurate as possible, but double-entry can be too costly and take too long.
Captricity is an entirely new way to digitize your data, letting you achieve accurate results in a fraction of the time, at a fraction of the cost. Surveys that would normally take months to process with conventional methods can be turned around in days. Captricity harnesses the power of automation and human intelligence to convert traditionally difficult tasks like handwriting recognition with exceptionally high accuracy.
Keep the advantages of paper
More and more research gets collected electronically, but sometimes paper is the only feasible choice for data collection. Captricity can help you bridge that gap, so you can take advantage of the strengths of paper-based data collection while also getting the convenience and power of digital data. And since Captricity doesn’t tie up your data, you can use it as a part of a combined, multi-modal data collection effort.
See for yourself—instantly
Don’t take our word for our accuracy. With Captricity’s QuickCheck feature, you can see for yourself how we achieve near-double-entry quality. You can inspect any value against the actual image instantly, with a single click.
Get your data back fast
Data entry that might normally take months or weeks comes back to you in days with Captricity—so you can start making your analysis right after your study ends. And since you can always inspect the actual entry behind every value with a single click, you can be sure it’s correct.
No hassles, no contracts
With Captricity, you pay a preset, low price for what you use—no more, no less. So that means no contracts, no negotiating, no hassles.
Export to your choice of software, anytime, anywhere
Once you’re satisfied with the results, you can export your data to your preferred analysis software—anything from Excel to SPSS to STATA. Your data is yours. And because we are cloud-based, your data is available to you 24/7, anywhere in the world, as long as you have an Internet connection.
