Revolutionize Your Paper Survey Workflow
Discover how PaperSurvey.io streamlines the survey process
1. Create a paper survey
Start by designing your survey with our easy-to-use online survey creator.
With 12 different question types to choose from and a variety of text formatting settings, you have the flexibility to customize your survey to fit your needs.
2. Print paper forms
Once you're happy with your survey design, it's time to print out your copies.
If your survey spans multiple pages, each page will be marked with a unique identifier. This not only simplifies the scanning and recognition process, but it also helps prevent duplicate uploads.
3. Begin data collection
Now it's time to distribute your forms and gather feedback from your respondents.
4. Scan & upload
Once you've collected the completed forms, it's time to scan the pages. Simply upload the scanned files to PaperSurvey.io and let our AI recognition technologies do the rest. You don't need to worry about the page order or rotation, as it will be detected automatically.
5. Analyze results
Once your data has been captured, you can analyze the results online or export the data file in CSV, Excel, or SPSS format for further analysis.

What our users say
Discover why users love PaperSurvey.io
"It worked out of the box. No training required, no clumsy configurations, and almost zero trial and error. Brilliant. Over-the-top customer service and expediency to design improvements based on feedback. It's an easy-to-use product that fills a void in the market and takes the sometimes essential paper-based survey work into the 21st century! While there may be some areas that can still be enhanced, by experience with customer service has blown me away..."

So useful for our purposes!
"We are an international NGO that conducts large-scale research and evaluations with participants in our programs. These participants generally do not have access to computers, smartphones, or internet, making data gathering and entry a very onerous process. We used to do paper-based surveys and then manual entry of each survey. This gets extremely time-consuming and pricey when we have thousands, and sometimes tens of thousands, of participants and multiple time points..."

Perfect tool for a small organization
