Qatar Leadership Centre (QLC) and Vodafone Qatar signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) yesterday to bolster their co-operation in research and data collection through the use of QSurvey.
Such co-operation is in line with the efforts of the two organisations to further leverage Qatar’s developing digital research capabilities in the fields of culture and science, according to a press statement.
As the “world’s first bilingual online survey tool for the promotion of scientific research,” www.QSurvey.com and its corresponding mobile app were launched in April 2018 under the patronage of HE Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, Chairperson of the QLC Board of Directors, as a free platform for efficient data storage and processing.
Commenting on the benefits of the joint initiative, Dr Ali Jassim al-Kubaisi, acting managing director at QLC, said: “QSurvey is a crucial building block for our country’s development towards international standards in digitalisation and communication.”
“We are proud to introduce QSurvey amongst our strong network of partnerships that reaches across Qatar’s main business domains. Vodafone Qatar – a leading telecommunications provider – in particular, is an indispensable partner in our common objective towards the advancement of the local knowledge-economy and therefore serves as a natural strategic ally,” he added.
“The launch of QSurvey comes as part of a significant national trend towards improved research and data analytics capabilities that aid the development of a strong scientific, research and legal framework for the digital market. It is in this environment that QLC aims to contribute to the culture of research and data collection through tangible, long-term services to market players,” Dr al-Kubaisi noted.
The QSurvey platform provides private and public organisations with secure and flexible services to gather internal and external reporting information, while academic users gain the opportunity to engage in free, unlimited creative research to enrich their projects and decision-making processes. Further, researchers can rely on the tool’s secure data storage with native Arabic- and English-language support and survey options. Notably, QSurvey users can analyse and export data onto a system of their choice, making it uniquely practical across a broad range of IT operation systems, such as Excel, PDF, and SPSS.
Khames al-Naimi, chief human resources officer, Vodafone Qatar, said: “We are proud to partner with QLC to be the first entity that will actively use the locally developed and industry leading tool QSurvey.”
“As a digital first company, we are always looking for innovative ways to integrate digital technologies into our operations to enhance both our employees’ working environment and our customers’ experience. We look forward to working with QLC on further research efforts that help realise Qatar National Vision 2030,” al-Naimi added.
