BRIDGING THE GAP
SURVEYSTUDIO® has spent the last nine years focusing only on closing the gap between great design and profitable installation, because we've learned an accurate photo-survey is pivotal to a successful retail placement.
We believe experience is at the center of true innovation.
In the world of kiosks and automated merchandising, what lives between creative design and installation is the Site Photo-Survey. It seems a small effort in comparison, however, we've learned--sometimes the hard way--that while the job may seem small, a failed or inaccurate site survey puts all your effort, time, and expense at risk.
A photo-survey is the critical bridge to your profitable deployment.
What We Stand For
SURVEYSTUDIO® sweats the details so you don't have to.
The secret to a successful partnership is listening.
Here's what we know... you know best. Yes, we are exclusively focused on creating the world's most effective photo-surveys. We are also keenly aware that no one knows better than you what you want to accomplish from our work. You define the ultimate success of our work. That's why we listen. To everyone involved.
We listen to you define success. We listen to the retailers describing their unique issues. We listen to the industry research to define best-practices. And, as we listen, we learn how to produce exactly what you were expecting. On time. Every time.
Fast is best, but never at the expense of accuracy.
We've learned how to be both.
"Yesterday" is the world's most popular deadline. To date, the ability to reverse time has eluded us (though, we're open to new ideas!) Instead, we get as close as we can, by ensuring that we're prepared and efficient at every step in the photo-survey process.
Couple that with our deep-seated belief that "if you've got time to do it twice, you've got time to do it right, the first time," we have discovered that the secret to delivering fast AND accurate results every time is... experience.
If the end result seems simple,
then we've done our job.
It may not seem like brain surgery to you, but to us... it really is. The devil lives in the details and we have learned how to distinguish the critical ones from the rest, while never losing sight of every one of the vast number of details that comprise one, "simple" photo-survey.
And while simplicity isn't really our primary target, we are proud that the by-product of a lot of experience, a set of crystal clear goals and, of course, a need to stay on plan is what we deliver, every time.
Trusted by the Best in the Industry
The people that make it all happen.
CEO & Founder
No matter how much he may deny it, the ongoing success of SurveyStudio is mostly Tyler’s fault. After earning his Masters in Architecture and a BA in Environmental Design from the University of Colorado, he spent a decade of his youth practicing as an architect. In 2010 he had an epiphany about the importance of surveys to the overall success of automated merchandising (e.g. kiosks) and founded SurveyStudio, where he now serves as our CEO.
Jeff was so impressed with SurveyStudio, he came out of retirement to invest and oversee Business Development. He joins the team after two decades as an unrepentant entrepreneur, founding (and selling) three companies of his own and licensing products to Computer Associates, Borland and Microsoft. He has an (almost) endless energy for sharing our message and strives every day to create a community of success within our industry.
Director of Operations
Along with having the coolest superhero name ever, Carla’s willingness to challenge the status quo and test assumptions make her the best choice for our Director of Operations. Prior to joining SurveyStudio, she served as the Customer Support Director for an adaptive technology company after accomplishing her Bachelor of Science Degree from Michigan State University.
Director of Systems
As our Director of Systems, Matt gets to live out his dream of uber-precision. Before he found his way (i.e. recruited) to help lead the SurveyStudio effort, he developed, implemented, and managed custom solutions for an engineering start-up, a midsize gaming company, and a global manufacturing firm. Internally, he's The Data Guy and commands all things Salesforce.
VP / Human Resources
Mari-Jo knows people. She spent 12 years as a Director of Client Services, with a focus on Human Services, before taking the lead as SurveyStudio's Vice-President and head of Human Resources. Her passion for serving others continues to keep our team focused on what's important for our partners and our own team members.
Laura earned her BA at the University of California, Riverside, though we don’t hold that against her. Heading up the SurveyStudio photo-survey team, we believe she is able to help keep our nationwide team of surveyors on the straight and narrow because she spent 5 years working as Site Director and Coordinator for youth development programs. We’re happy she survived that and used it to create her passion for team development, training management, and empathetic customer service.
