From gathering evidence to analysing data, managing quality to creating statutory reports, surveys are an everyday part of education and research. BOS is designed with your needs as an education and research organisation in mind. It's easy to use, cost-effective, supports collaboration and safeguards your survey data.
How this service helps you
As well as helping to meet the needs of your users, the service benefits you as an organisation.
Collaborate with other organisations
Users can easily share surveys with others, allowing users with different accounts to work together on the same survey
You can run the same survey as other organisations, at exactly the same time – then ‘benchmark’ the replies you receive against those received by the others
You can set up benchmarking groups (additional chargeable service)
Easily design, distribute and analyse surveys
BOS is easy to use: no complicated or technical knowledge is needed to set it up. Online guides support you through the process of designing and distributing surveys, as well as analysing results, and our knowledgeable support team is also on hand to help.
Comply with changing data protection laws
Secure data governance is vital in UK education and research. With BOS, your data is held and processed in compliance with data protection legislation – giving you peace of mind that your data is in safe hands.
Improve services in response to survey results
BOS can give you a clear, rapid insight into how you can improve services for staff and students – helping you plan your future as an organisation. That could be especially vital, for example, during periods of change such as a further education merger process.
Get financial clarity with flat-rate pricing
We offer this service at a competitive, flat-rate price – avoiding a user-based pricing model that could make it prohibitively expensive for larger organisations.
