Revolutionizing Community Engagement: Zencity's Vision for Surveys Set in Motion

While surveys remain integral to understanding communities, it's time for a progressive shift. In the dynamic landscape of public opinion, Zencity is leading a transformative approach to surveys, challenging traditional methodologies that have prevailed for over a century.

Embracing Change for a Brighter Future:

We recognize the enduring importance of resident input in shaping local governance. Traditional surveys have served their purpose, but over the last couple of years, we at Zencity have taken surveys to a whole new level – a dynamic, inclusive, and technologically advanced solution designed to keep pace with the fast-moving world and above all, to help you exceed your residents’ expectations.

A Paradigm Shift in Survey Methodology:


Representativeness Redefined:
Traditional surveys grapple with declining response rates and biases in probability sampling. Zencity Surveys break free from these limitations, adopting a non-probability sample that truly represents the diversity of a city's population.

Traditional surveys often exclude many people, rely on a smaller sample size due to non-response, and are less representative.

Zencity surveys reach more diverse groups, continue collection until an adequate sample is achieved, and are more representative of the entire community.

Removing Participation Barriers:
Zencity Surveys transcend the barriers imposed by traditional survey methods. By meeting residents where they are – on their phones or tablets – and keeping surveys short and accessible, Zencity ensures broader participation and a richer pool of perspectives.

Traditional surveys demand that respondents set time aside from their day, take too long to complete, and may alienate residents.

Zencity surveys find respondents where they are, include more residents by being accessible and shorter to complete, and prevent survey fatigue.

Value Beyond Expectations:
In a world that demands agility and responsiveness, Zencity Surveys provide more surveys in a shorter time frame. This real-time approach allows decision-makers to adapt to evolving community sentiments, making the surveys a valuable tool in the dynamic landscape of governance.

Traditional surveys take too long, require too many resources, and lack responsiveness.

Zencity surveys give you more surveys (and analysis) for a flat price and, in just one month, allow you to track responses, adapt the survey as needed, and enable flexibility and insight into trends.
