One month ago we launched Inqwise.com to the world

Hello all!

It was one month ago that we launched Inqwise.com - new online survey tool and our baby is gaining momentum.
In this post we'd like to draw some of our conclusions regarding this period of time and share our future plans with you.


  • One of the most fundamental building blocks is the web site's performance. Recently, we've managed to decrease the server's response time by at least 30%, due to the following: resource optimization, data caching and simplification of operations logic.
  • We've increase the bandwidth of our collectors by 3.5 times. It was achieved by using smart distribution solution. As a result our platform are ready for enterprise level loads.
  • Now you can easily find us on the Internet, we've improved the SEO of the website. Inqwise has already glimpsed in many search engines for queries related to online surveys.

Some statistics

Maximum of unique users per day:91
Number of transactions:more than 800
Number of recipients:more than 400
Number of polls created:more than 30
Number of registered users:32

Summing it up

Our aspiration is to expand the capabilities and simplify the working process in our system.
Nevertheless, even at this stage Inqwise is a better alternative compared to other competing survey tools like SurveyMonkey, PollDaddy, and FluidSurveys.

In the near future we'll increase the stock of the new features and services, and make working processes more intuitive.

Best regards,
The Inqwise Team.

Beta Tier and Testing

We push major code changes weekly on Tuesday evenings (Pacific Standard Time), and hotfixes throughout the week.

Every week, usually on Sunday evenings, we stage our weekly push, which happens on Tuesday evenings, on the beta tier. This provides ourselves 48 hours to test and find bugs before the build hits production. After Tuesday, while the beta tier is continuously updated with hotfix patches which are queued up for the daily hotfix release, the production tier is updated with the hotfix push in the evenings, Pacific Standard Time.
