For iOS and Android.

Compatible with almost all smartphones and tablets.

Because of native support of Android (from version 2.3) and iOS (from version 8) mQuest®  is compatible with 90 % of all smartphones and tablets. mQuest®  can also be executed on most existing devices, so that no further equipment has to be purchased. mQuest® is available at Google Play and in the Apple App Store.

Mobile offline data acquisition.

Works always – even in the tube.

mQuest® is fully deployable even without internet connection. Via digital forms all relevant data is saved securely on a tablet or smartphone and can – with an existing internet connection – be synchronised with the database. Therefore reliable traffic surveys can even be executed in areas with weak internet connection, for example in the subway.

The immediate availability of the data and the improved quality of the results are compelling arguments for the use of mQuest® on mobile devices. This is even more important against the backdrop of the economic efficiency of the method.

Smart integration of transit maps.

From the home station to the terminal

Sequences of stations and transit maps can easily be integrated into mQuest®. The sequences of stations of each line are created with spreadsheet programs, for example Excel, and subsequently deposited into the questionnaire. Certain stations can be selected on the mobile device via auto-fill-lists.

Comfortable order management

So that everything goes smoothly when it matters.

With the integrated order management of mQuest® service employees and interviewer get their assigned orders directly onto their mobile devices via push notification in real-time. The notifications include all relevant information, like time and place, as well as details about the order.

Traceable because of geodata.

Always know, where you´re at

With mQuest® geodata can be catured automatically during surveys. The collected GPS-data is saved along with the data set. Therefore it is always transparent which results occurred at which station or on which line.
