Additional Information

Option Finder is a combination of decision support software and wireless participant response keypads.

Option Finder is the standard-setting software for anonymous, interactive polling.

Option Finder combines a sophisticated set of polling, cross-tabulation and data reporting tools.

List Processing facilitates the evaluation or prioritization of a list of just about anything. In list processing, criteria can be structured as either scale-type judgments or prioritized through forced choice paired comparisons. An unlimited number of criteria can be used to assess the elements in the list.

Question exercises provide flexibility in the way that questions are posed to the participants. Two specialized forms of questions permit “on-the-fly” question creation in the meeting with or without entering the specific question being asked.

Grouping permits slicing results by meeting participants’ characteristics or belief categories (e.g., review how each department voted on a new strategic planning initiative). An unlimited number of groups can be created.

The Option Finder feature sets have long been the standard for decision-making, risk assessment and consensus building within an interactive voting session. OptionFinder software provides a number of key polling and meeting support tools. Each can be used alone or in conjunction with each other to build an entire session agenda.

Templates for Session and Polling Design: As Option Finder users move into and out of facilitator or operator roles, it is important that a session methodology is easily repeatable regardless of who may be implementing it.

The Option Finder software allows you to easily template and re-use your favorite formats. The template system is an efficient way for the user to recreate some or all components of an effective session process. The template system will save most components of the session design. Question response choices, complete exercises, entire agendas, printing and exporting features can all be saved as templates.

Session Agenda Format: The Option Finder software uses a session agenda format as a single “home-base” for all steps in the session process.

By placing the entire voting process on the public agenda screen, the legislator has a reference point that identifies where they are in the voting process

Multiple sub-group comparison methods for real-time data analysis: Drill down on the polling data to compare how the constituent groups voted in relation to each other.

Decision Support Tools: Full decision support capabilities (e.g., prioritize items using one or more criteria including multiple choice scales or paired comparisons. Using Option Finder’s List Processing tool you can easily rank order and prioritize lists.

“On the Fly” Question Capability for Instant Polling: Allows instant verbal or written questions to be presented and polled immediately.

Clean Uncluttered Polling Screens: Less clutter on the screen makes it easy for the audience to understand the data being presented.

Flexible In-Session Controls: Version 5.2 paid special attention to in-session flexibility because users wanted it. You can now back up or skip forward during polls. You can run an impromptu question anytime, regardless of what is showing on the screen. And you can easily replace the data for a poll by re-polling when discussion indicates a misunderstanding.

Polling Sequences and Results Displays: Can easily set up the sequence behaviors to have Option Finder present the questions and charts any way you choose.

Pop-Up Menus: Convenient pop-up menus display options and commands with a simple mouse click. If you forget the hotkeys, the right click menu will remind you.

Reporting Options: Option Finder provides flexibility in reporting the results of a session. Option Finder can display results in a variety of ways, including red-amber-green “stop light” coloring, and two-axis, X-Y plots of multi-factor data.

A sophisticated reporting system produces spreadsheet tables of summary data and printouts of graphs (with up to 8 graphs per page) in a variety of report formats. Any of the Option Finder polling screens or graphs can be easily copied to word processing or presentation software.

Consolidation of Data Across Sessions: If you run the same process more than once, you can consolidate the data into one data set for convenient reporting.
