A survey is a detailed study of a market or geographical area to gather data on attitudes, impressions, options, satisfaction level etc. by polling a section of the population.

Adding a survey to your website helps provide a better understanding of the attitude or the requirement of the individual customer. Based on the interest of the user, we can send broadcasts/campaigns and set up automation.
