Want to instantly know the conversion rates for your products and categories? MainEvent gives you the power to analyze, visualize, and correlate your data to drive better decisions - and improve your field programs’ results.
With an easy-to-use mobile app that runs on Android and iOS, field staff have the tools they need to do their job on the road. From their phone or tablet they can see their schedules and get directions to work locations, check in or out, submit hours and expenses for payroll, complete recaps and surveys including digital confirmation signatures, and upload images of their completed tasks captured on their device camera.
Best of all, the app works both online and offline, so work won’t be interrupted if wifi or cellular service is unavailable.
MainEvent’s dynamic recap builder lets you build complex recaps using a drag and drop interface. Recaps can include branching logic where submitted responses drive the questions that get displayed, product forms which allow you to collect details (like units sold, bottle size, etc) about any number of products, and calculations where values are automatically derived from input data.
Recap responses are tied to the visit where they were collected and any of the collected data can be analyzed, filtered, and reported on in a variety of ways. Data can also be pulled in from externally-accessible consumer surveys, store sales data, and many other external sources.
Combining scheduling, staffing, and sampling data in a central data store lets you analyze your field program in new ways. From customizable data dashboards, to automated reports, automated alerts, checkin/checkout history, and a historical visit success analysis tool, MainEvent for Sampling Programs provides a flexible platform for seeing your field program from every angle.
