With DataForce fulfillment, you save time, risk and money!
DataForce optimizes package assembly and shipping for all of your survey and assessment projects. From barcoding and matched mailings to stamping and bulk shipping, we can manage even the most complex projects with spot-on accuracy to ensure you get results you can count on. We save you time and money by using our automated processes to help efficiently deliver all of your surveys and questionnaires through USPS and other logistics companies.
Common kitting projects include:
We can pack multiple items to spec – including class header sheets, surveys, assessments, and administrator instructions – making it easier for you to distribute materials on-site and keep materials together when they are returned.
Interviewer Field Kits
These kits can contain 5 or 50 items depending on the work being done in the field. A kit could consist of the following items along with sub-kits within the primary kit – incuding pens, stamps, note cards, brochures, receipts, door hangers, letters and more.
Projects often have many different kits and sub-kits. As materials become available, DataForce monitors the inventory application. Once all materials are available for any kit, a work order is submitted to operations for the quantity required. Only the inventory needed for the quantity required is pulled. The initial kits will be built, and we will take either a video or pictures to give an exploded view of the kit for your approval. Only upon your approval will operators will be given a packing list and sample to complete the buildout.
Mailing & Distribution
DataForce survey mailing services manages your entire delivery and collection process. We ensure that your materials are delivered on time, every time.
We use advanced technologies including camera matching mailings that match and verify addresses automatically and our proprietary client interface, SASTrack, that gives you visibility into your project(s), with dashboard views showing you when material has been shipped, what has been returned, and what has been processed.
We can send bulk mailings and/or first-class mailings to anywhere in the world. And while postage costs are fixed, our automated processes cut preparation time and save our clients’ money. Partnering with our preferred direct mail providers, mailing data are run through CASS-certified software, as well as NCOA (address correction), merge/purge, and carrier pre-sort – all with the goal of reducing your postage costs. You can also take advantage of DataForce’s high-volume business reply postage permit, which gives your respondents a simple pre-paid way to return their surveys. You only pay the postage for surveys that are returned.
DataForce supports a wide variety of services to meet our clients’ project demands, including:
