- Launched on Time! The world-wide Air Force Climate
Survey launched Oct. 1, 2003 successfully across the world, to the Air Force, Air Force National Guard and
Air Force Reserves. This will be an extremely large survey, with a population of approximately 750,000. As
always, it features a sophisticated administration module so that participants are easily provided for, and
so that local reports are easily obtained. Server support technology is new and special software helps to
automate file movement. The survey form itself is even easier to use and move through, to save participants
- The 2004 OPM Human Capital
Survey described in Federal Computer Week shows that
federal employees are happy overall
with their workplaces. Over 150,000 federal employees were surveyed using
Raosoft InterForm software. The results indicated that the government
needs to tie employees' pay to their performance better, and to deal more
effectively with low performing workers and to reward high performing
workers more meaningfully. OPM was able to carry out the demanding
process on their own because of the thorough support that the Raosoft
InterForm software products provided the entire process. OPM
administrators were able to monitor provisional results both at the
Headquarter and agency regional level. Both question results and number of
answering respondents were available to them. The 2004 Human Capital
Survey is the second version of the survey, the first being in 2002, so
comparative data is becoming available.
- The Army schools
The U. S. Army gets
unified assessment for its 29 TRADOC schools. Raosoft, Inc. has
developed the AUTOGEN
software for the Army Reseach Institute, which provides it to the Army
schools. The schools are able to carry out their own Job Analysis surveys and
Training Evaluation surveys now. They use built-in standard questions and responses
and are also able to create their own questions through a sophisticated wizard.
AUTOGEN guides the data collection by multiple methods: web, LAN, or
diskette. Default reports that allow multiple queries and options give the
results to the schools in clear format.
AUTOGEN has become mandatory in the schools because of its remarkable productivity.
- Each U.S Army Training
and Doctrine Command Schools (TRADOC) will
be provided with Raosoft EZReport
software programs, funded by Headquarters. The
personnel of the training
schools will be able now to analyze and interpret
data on their own, and present reports in polished presentation-quality
will employ EZReport’s quick queries, sorts,
and statistical analysis
to examine data gathered. They will be able to build customized reports that
they can use repeatedly, as well as select from
default reports in EZReport. The program RapidReport will be used to
instant display of the results in polished reports for upper management
or for themselves.
- The Royal Australian Navy (RAN)
completed their long planned corporate site purchase for Raosoft software
in June and July. They have used our Raosoft
software for automated training
evaluations for several years, and now have expanded to a full site
license for the general Navy, because of their satisfaction with our
robust software and the productivity it has brought them. They will be
using a combination of our EZSurvey for the Internet survey software for
web-based data collection with our SurveyWin (diskette, notebook, LAN and
paper) distribution software, for many different types of applications.
The Training command conducts training evaluations for both land classes
and ships. Land classes use electronic and paper entry, while on the
ships, laptop computers are used for data entry by
respondents and then the data is appended for larger scale reporting.
- The Army Testing and Evaluation
Command (ATEC) Headquarters of Virginia has purchased the EZSurvey survey software tools
family to replace their paper process with EZSurvey's web survey and email
survey functionality. Raosoft provided training at their
site in the Washington, D.C. area to
teach new users both the beginning and advanced options of EZSurvey for
the Internet. ATEC has many applications now on paper that can be productively
addressed with web survey data gathering.
- The U.S. Office of Government
Ethics Agency, a long-term owner of Raosoft SurveyWin survey
software, has decided to replace paper survey processes with web surveys. They will be using Raosoft EZSurvey for the Internet. OGE has purchased the EZSurvey survey software tool set for users throughout the agency. The first web survey application will be for a survey that will cover the Executive Branch. Previously the survey has been outsourced, so EZSurvey
represents a large cost saving, plus provides them with greater design
control of both survey form and reporting. Raosoft went to Washington DC
to provide an on-site training course for the agency.
