Sawtooth Software: The Survey Software of Choice

Standard Web-Based Surveys: Why SSI Web v8 Is Becoming the Go-To Tool

As our general survey platform evolves, many of our customers are finding that it provides all they need for their web-based and CAPI survey needs. If you are frustrated with aspects of other survey tools, we invite you to consider switching to CiW within our SSI Web platform. You may download a demo and try it out at: Download SSI Web Trial

Standard survey research is our bread-and-butter, though we are well-known for our advanced analytical tools. The first software package we ever released as a company (back in the early 1980s) was for general survey creation on PCs. Over the last five years, more programming effort has gone into our general survey platform (often called “CiW”) than into conjoint analysis!

Because SSI Web is a template-based (point-and-click) system for survey creation, beginning users find it easy to program their first projects. SSI Web also allows power users to incorporate additional HTML, Javascript, Flash, and Perl, so advanced users are finding that it can do things that other survey packages cannot.

SSI Web’s Capabilities:
