Community Members will be able to create their own customized customer satisfaction survey in
minutes, on the Web, target their current and potential customers, and assess their opinions in

Director. “Ultimately it will change the way we make decisions on a day to day basis because it
removes virtually every barrier to collecting customer feedback. They are the perfect partners
Supportgate.com says the SSPA Market Research Center enables companies to build a fast and easy
“self service” survey. By working from survey questionnaire templates that are prepared by market
research pros – or use your current survey questions – the company says you can create your own
customer satisfaction survey in as little as 20 minutes and use your own customer list – or your own
web-site customers – to respond to your survey. They also say that results are usually available
within 24 hours and are easy to read and actionable. You can also schedule your survey to run at a
regular schedule every day, week or month.
