When a complex, costly enterprise survey application isnt a high priority for deployment, a hosted online survey application is a good choice for departmental use. Version 4.1 of WebSurveyors namesake service is an option worth consideration.

WebSurveyor 4.1 includes new capabilities—including support for multipage questions, weighting of questions and multilanguage support—that put it on par with other survey applications (see screen).

One particularly welcome new feature is cluster reports, which make it possible to create subreports based on how a question is answered. In tests, this made it possible for me to quickly see different results based on elements such as location or net worth.

Unlike other hosted services, which are completely Web-based, WebSurveyor has a dedicated client, which makes it possible to do advanced survey creation.

WebSurveyor Now accounts, which enable companies to conduct one survey over three months, start at $449. WebSurveyor Pro accounts start at $1,500 per year, with a capacity of one concurrent survey. WebSurveyor Enterprise accounts start at $12,000 per year, with a capacity of 20 concurrent surveys.
