Panel Manager

PANEL Manager was designed to respond to the needs of everyone wishing to form and manage outside panels, for example: consumers, prospective customers, shops or in-house panels such as personnel, trained staff, job applicants etc.

Optical reading of documents is a tried and tested technique which saves you a considerable amount of time and effort. Up until now, it was difficult to set up, and its use was confined to heavy applications. The user had to print documents according to strict norms after which a special file, detailing the structure of the different pages had to be programmed for the optical reader. Once the documents had been read, the user obtained a raw file which had to be transferred to a software program especially adapted, in order to make use of the information.


With PANEL Manager you will :

  • Manage the make-up of the panel, i.e.: update, suppress or add members
  • Take into account the recovery of selective or regular/consistent information i.e.; reply coupons, requests, complaints etc.
  • Carry out an action on a part or the whole of the panel such as sending letters or questionnaires managing the returns, handling telephone calls, sending presents on birthdays or invitations to demonstrations etc.
