About BerryVine Survey

An amazing product, that turns any BlackBerry into an efficient data collection device. BerryVine Survey™ is intended for design and usage of templates for the following purposes:

Taking surveys
Survey templates created with BerryVine Survey can be used for generic numbered question based data gathering and can be used, among others, to replace all sorts of paper based surveys.

Generic data collection using forms
Form templates created with BerryVine Survey can be used to collect information that does not require any numbering and can be used, among others, to replace all sorts of paper based forms.

Performing systematic counts
Counting templates created with BerryVine Survey can be used for performing extensive systematic counts of multiple categories of items. BerryVine Survey turns your BlackBerry in a powerful counting device allowing you to optionally define and use different counting hotkeys on the BlackBerry keyboard for fast incrementation or decrementation of the counters, making it possible to perform on-the-fly counts of multiple categories of items.

Template design can be done straight from the BlackBerry, allowing users to transform their ideas and needs to templates straight away. Additionally, design can also be done using the free web-application that is available for all licensed BerryVine Survey users. This application allow users to build templates from the comfort of a desktop computer, using a modern Internet browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Easy Distribution of Templates
Once templates have been designed using either the template designer on the BlackBerry or the online template designer, they can then be easily distributed to multiple recipients, using the standard E-mail functionality of the BlackBerry or the template distribution function of the web application. All users of BerryVine Survey can receive these templates on their device and start using them straight away. BlackBerry users require no MDS or BES specific functionality to send or receive templates!

GPS Support
BerryVine Survey offers full GPS integration and allows users to capture GPS coordinates and include them in their survey, form or counting results. This function is ideal to relate collected data to a geographical position and use this information for further processing or representation of the collected data. GPS coordinates are captured in a format that allows them to be used with tools such as Google Maps or Microsoft MapPoint to display the coordinates on maps for graphical representation purposes.

Data Exports
Once data is collected using BerryVine Survey, it can be exported/distributed straight from the device. The application supports two standard data export formats: CSV files (semicolon delimited .csv), XML format (.xml) and MS Excel (.xls). Please note that MS Excel format is only available for BES BlackBerry devices. Data exports are done using the standard E-mail functionality of the BlackBerry and can be sent to one or multiple recipients simultaneously.

Advanced generic data exporting functionality will be made available soon for users web application, allowing them to securily post all collected data to the web application. This will make sure that all data coming from different users, using the same template, is immediately aggregated and can be exported in a singular MS Excel, XML or CSV file. Please note that application customization is possible upon request (i.e. integration with organizational information systems, etc).

Usage Examples
With its dynamic structure, BerryVine Survey can be used for almost any data collection purpose. To illustrate this, here is a list of what BerryVine Survey is being used for by some of the current users:
