WHAT IS EFS PANEL?
EFS Panel combines powerful panel management, a content management system for designing the panel website and the functions of EFS Survey, the basic platform for performing data collection processes:
The panel website (or websites) is created and maintained via a content management system that is integrated within EFS Panel. The functions available on the website, such as registration and forms for contact e-mails, are integrated into the panel management software.
EFS Panel is designed to manage panels with over 100,000 participants. Import interfaces allow you to import participant data from external sources into the panel as a basis for generating the panelist data. Various statistics functions make it easier for panel administrators to control the composition of the panel.
If you wish to reward regular participants, you can use a bonus administration and a tool for conducting prize draws. You can create promotional campaigns to canvass new panelists, based on the principle of offering rewards to panelists who canvass new panelists.
You can employ all the tools you already know from EFS Survey in creating, conducting and evaluating online surveys. You can use criteria you have selected yourself to create subpanels (“groups”) from the overall pool of panel participants . These serve as the basis for drawing samples for individual surveys. Export interfaces allow you to evaluate and further process the data collected (master data, address data, project data, etc.) externally.
A powerful mail dispatch system is available for communication with the panelists, while other features assist you in documenting telephone or “snail-mail” contacts.
