Custom, state-of-the art, online, interactive reporting solutions provide dynamic
survey data in real time to the right people no matter where they are. But custom
reporting solutions are expensive. Smaller companies have had to rely on more traditional
solutions such as outsourced report writing, PowerPoint decks, spreadsheets and
Over the course of developing custom reporting solutions for many clients over many
years, AnnikTech experts realized that most clients require a large number of identical
solutions in addition to a smaller number of their own custom solutions. By combining
the identical solutions into a single framework our experts were able to satisfy
80 percent of automated online reporting solution needs.
This frees up AnnikTech developers to spend more time creating the other 20 percent—namely
the customized reporting solutions specific to each company or survey. The result
is AnnikTech Rapid Dashboard Framework (RDF), an online, interactive delivery solution
that can be customized at a cost that’s affordable to small and medium sized businesses.
Once RDF is bridged seamlessly to your system by our developers, AnnikTech RDF can
deliver small and large study reports online for multiple clients.
The large framework library serves as the foundation for AnnikTech RDF so developers
can focus on the customized aspects of creating automated, interactive reports.
This makes RDF deployment for new studies extremely agile with quick turnarounds
and at a cost that is on par with the report writing services offered by market
research & operations companies.
While there are many companies currently developing workflow automation solutions,
Annik is unique in that its principal area of expertise is in workflow automation
for market research. Combine that with the deep market research application experience
of AnnikTech developers and it’s apparent our clients receive a number of advantages.
For example, because we understand market research, we are able to analyze workflow
based on our extensive experience in this area. In many instances, we are able to
reduce manual efforts in workflow by up to 40 percent.
Workflow automation starts with business process engineering, wherein AnnikTech
engineers identify areas that can be automated. They then design the process and
plan for third party integration. With the process fully designed we show you the
overall improvement automation will have on workflow. At this point, development
of the platform occurs. Upon completion, quality checks are performed and we train
users on the new workflow. As new processes are created or automation opportunities
are identified, AnnikTech works with your users to implement changes and design
Annik has long been acknowledged as a leader when it comes to creating interactive,
animation-based flash tools for market research surveys. In addition to creating
award winning off-the-shelf flash tools, AnnikTech developers create custom flash
tools for use in any platform.
While other companies create flash animated solutions, Annik is different in that
we not only create the customized flash; we integrate it into the platform you already
use. This means your organization receives the flash tool within the platform page
so it is ready for use.
Our flash tools are easily integrated with industry standard survey data collection
platforms like -
To initiate the custom flash tool process, AnnikTech personnel assess the requirements
required of the tool, they then create a storyboard of screen shots, explain how
the flash will work and then work with you to agree on functionality. They then
develop the tool. Once complete, quality checks are performed and the tool is integrated
into the appropriate platform page before delivery. Each custom flash tool is owned
outright by the client. Development through delivery can take as little as a few
hours up to as long as two weeks. Typical turnaround is four to five days.
In instances where you require more flexibility for data analytics or to service
ad-hoc requests for your clients or researchers, our Report Writer solution comes
handy while being cost effective. Report Writer has been specially designed to consume
survey data allowing the users to create cross tabs and view them as charts.
You can create your own filters and apply them on the reports and finally export
them in Microsoft PowerPoint, Excel or Adobe PDF.
The ease of use in our Report Writer lets you focus on the data analytics and report
production without worrying about the backend.
Annik follows CMMi and Six Sigma approaches to maintain quality of the documentation
and communication. The team is certified on various software and platforms.
To ensure smooth development and quality delivery, Annik will deploy a QC team to
ensure all requirements are verified and implemented as expected. Following are
the steps QC team will follow.
With the application of Agile methodology for development of project, all the modules
of project are developed independently with minimal impact on other related modules.
We involve our clients to review the developments of major modules of project during
the development. This results in high level of flexibility to make any mid-development
changes with minimal impact on the overall development cycle of project. Our development
life cycle is implied on every module separately. The project manager will also
act as Scrum master during regular scrum sessions.
