DataCracker is a survey results manager that helps users gather information from responses. The application claims to do “all the hard work for you” by indicating changes with arrows and applying advanced statistical tests. The entire system is web based so the user can quickly access their account from anywhere with an internet connection. Insights can be compiled and shared in multiple formats, including a web page, PowerPoint presentation or PDF. Rather than going through individual questions, DataCracker utilizes predictive modeling which figures out how questions are related to provide better data organization. Survey results can be imported from many popular third party services, including Survey Gizmo, Qualtrics, Toluna QuickSurveys, Survey Analytics, Survey Monkey, QuestionPro and Super Simple Survey.Show more screenshots »
