Pioneering nonpartisan research organization Mathematica Policy Research today announced it has selected and implemented Confirmit Horizons to support its data collection projects. The partnership marks the first step for Mathematica as it looks to raise the bar for evidence generation technology, supporting its overall mission of quality, objectivity, and excellence for its customers’ information collection and analysis.
Mathematica has implemented Confirmit Horizons as its new Computer Assisted Interviewing (CAI) software system for all modes of data collection projects. Through customizations in the configuration and protocols for use of the system, Mathematica is now able to quickly and consistently serve projects and clients within their necessary constraints.
Daniel Glovich, Associate Director of Technology Solutions Group at Mathematica, said, “We understand the evolving needs of our clients and their technology expectations, and appreciate the increasing focus on agility and responsiveness. We embrace these needs as opportunities for innovation and leadership. Working with Confirmit is one of the first steps in the direction of our future, and we are excited for what’s to come.”
The ability to have one integrated, modern platform for all data collection efforts was key to the selection of Confirmit Horizons. The platform also allows Mathematica to modernize and standardize its user experience, which is vital to a company that values a user-first design perspective. Furthermore, since this integrated system can function across all modes, with minimal modifications to an instrument, Mathematica can release a web survey to apps on mobile devices or call centers in a fraction of the time and costs, compared to previous iterations.
Daniel Glovich continues, “The implementation of Confirmit Horizons as our unified data collection system has revealed dramatically improved reporting capabilities. Real-time project reporting and cross-project reporting are both now default in our systems. These updated methods of reporting have resulted in a greater focus on the operational needs of our projects, improving our overall processes.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to help bring Mathematica technology to a new frontier,” said Dave King, President of Americas, Confirmit. “This relationship helps Mathematica offer a new level of responsiveness, availability, and customization to support the unique needs of its varied customers. We are already hearing about impressive improvements in data collection and process efficiencies and look forward to supporting Mathematica as it continues to enhance its data collection capabilities.”
