We know that for some market research projects Paper Assisted Personal Interviewing (PAPI) is still the best way to capture the rich content you need. Our dedicated data entry team punch, verify and edit paper studies quickly and efficiently, taking standard paper questionnaires and digitalising the data.

The team write edits, check validity, report data issues, amend and then recheck in order to get you clean, accurate data ready for analysis.
