Surveys have changed a lot in the last fifteen years. For instance, customer satisfaction has gone from a long once-a-year survey to short continuous longitudinal surveys spread across the customer journey. CheckMarket has evolved too, introducing new features and best practices along the way.
More and more companies ask their customers for feedback nowadays. We at CheckMarket think that the increase of customer-centricity is great, but unfortunately there’s not only good news attached to it. People are getting a bit tired of filling in surveys, because they simply receive lots and lots of invitations on a regular basis. Survey fatigue is coming to the surface. Since getting valuable feedback is essential, how do you make people open your invitations? These 5 tips will help you get your feedback requests clicked on more easily.
Champagne for everyone, because we’ve got some great and exciting news! Capterra has named us in their Top 20 Most Popular Survey Software report. We’re included for the very first time this year and we already ranked 18th, so we couldn’t be more proud.
Connect your surveys to 500+ Apps with our Zapier integration!
We, developers, like automating tasks. Since we created our webhooks, you have new options to simplify the daily life of your colleagues. But we know building and managing custom-built applications can be time-consuming and low on the priority list. That’s why we integrated our platform into Zapier.
As a survey software provider it’s our job to keep our clients’ data safe. So far, we have earned the trust of 10,000+ users around the world, however, that doesn’t mean we can rest on our laurels. Our developers are working hard on new ways to keep your data locked all the time. Here’s a run down of our survey security policy.
We here at CheckMarket always like a good pat on the back … So thank you, AnalyticsTool! In their survey tool review they praised our “powerful survey software” for its “ease of use”, “multilanguage functionality”, “automated notifications” and “flexible pricing options” … And who are we to argue?
As an enterprise survey tool, we prove time and time again security is our top priority. Our default SSL encryption and 2-step verification is a testament of our commitment to our users’ security. Today, we add an extra layer of security to downloads and exports from CheckMarket.
When you export data from CheckMarket, a URL is generated which gives access to the file. The transfer itself is secured by https, but if someone could get the URL, for instance if your computer was hacked and sending info to someone else, they too could get the data. This is no longer the case. Now, all URLs to downloads require an authenticated user with access to the specific survey. Our feature to share results with others (not CM users), is protected too and requires a password to access the results.
On April 7, 2014, a team of security researchers announced the discovery of a critical vulnerability dubbed “The Heartbleed Bug”, found in OpenSSL (a widely-used open source cryptographic software library), which allows attackers to read the memory of the systems using vulnerable versions of OpenSSL software.
Our users have always had the option of using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to create a secure encrypted connection between their computer and CheckMarket. If it is now turned on by default for all users and all surveys.
What is SSL (or HTTPS)?
SSL verifies the identity of a company (CheckMarket) over the internet with a certificate authority. If everything checks out, CheckMarket and your computer establish an initial connection called a handshake. During the handshake the connection will determine which kind of encryption or scrambling it will use. The agreement created during the handshake is used to set up a secure connection between CheckMarket and your computer, called a Secure Socket Layer (SSL). Now the connection between CheckMarket and your computer is secure, and not at risk from third party infiltration.
