Top 3 Use Cases for Embedded Self-Service Data Collection

Everyone is excited to build data-driven applications that think for themselves and take appropriate actions when actions are warranted. But while many people focus on the decision-making portion of this scenario, equally as important is having the right data on which those decisions can be made. Without the ability to easily collect new information, your applications will quickly become stale and will most certainly begin making poor decisions. This is where embedded, self-service data collection can give your organization a huge advantage.

Let’s take a look at some of the typical use-cases for embedded data collection:

Custom Feedback Processing

The first application you will likely have for embedded data collection is to gather feedback from your customers, vendors or employees. Qrvey makes it possible to gather just about any type of feedback, on any subject at any time. Our platform includes a variety of tools, including forms and surveys, which allow for the quick and painless collection of of structured responses, free-form text, files, images and more. Your feedback can also include complex branching and skip logic if you wish.

No matter what type of data you end up collecting… structured, unstructured or a combination of both, the Qrvey platform has the tools to immediately visually analyze the results and perform workflow automations to update records, send alerts and notifications or take other actions as needed.

Training and Compliance

When it comes to training and compliance, having a clear understanding of which employees are retaining information, and which aren’t, is crucial. That’s why Qrvey includes quizzes as a standard collection tool. Quizzes allow you to not only ask questions, but also rank and score the results and take the appropriate next steps. Quizzes are perfect for both training and compliance scenarios and your content can even be monetized with Qrvey’s built-in payment processing.


Sometimes the best data collection is simple data collection. Checklists are a quick and easy way to for users to update their progress, provide a status update or simply check off which items are needed most in the company kitchen. But don’t let their simpliciaty fool you. Checklists that are updated on a regular basis can provide a trove of useful information that can be both analyzed and automation in future.
