About Alstra

Alstra’s story started in March 2000 when the company was founded, under the name of Survey Generator.

It was successful right on the start, and the company grew rapidly. It developed from just developing survey tools and services to becoming a supplier of integrated solutions, with consultancy services related to project management and advice.

We changed the company’s name into to Alstra in 2002, but Survey Generator lives on as the brand name of the survey tool.

These days, Alstra consists of six highly motivated employees, who are all strongly interested in helping everybody from corporations like Demoskop, SKF, Saco and Com Hem to smaller actors such as Axánd Konsult and ARS Research.

Our Partners

Microsoft – software
Alstra is a Microsoft Certified Partner, which means that we have been certified to develop software in the Microsoft environment. We know the technology and we have the competence to develop tailor-made solutions, both for Survey Generator, but also for unique software.

CINT – panels
Alstra collaborates with CINT, a panel company. If you don’t have a specific target group, you can reach a representative selection of the general public, with the help of CINT’S panels. This is useful if you want to find out what the “general public” thinks about various matters, but also when you want access to respondents in other countries.

Readspeaker – speech enabled surveys
Readspeaker collaborates with the ReadSpeaker company, which has developed the ReadSpeakerEnterprise service. Survey Generator is available with this option, so that all questions and answers alternatives are read to the respondent. Alstra is working with several investigators, to develop ReadSpeakerEnterprise in Survey Generator.

Streaming companies – video in the survey
Alstra collaborates with a number of streaming companies, to present streamed films in Survey Generator. This can be a complement to displaying images in the questionnaire.

Market research – extra support
Alstra collaborates with a number of professional market researchers. They can help you when you need extra support for matters including strategies, question formulation and specific or more advanced analyses of your surveys.

Alstra’s office is strategically located in the Old Town area of Stockholm and is easy to reach on foot, by bicycle, public transport or if you take the car.

Walking
If you come from central Stockholm, we can recommend that you walk along Drottninggatan, Västerlånggatan until you reach Järntorget. Then it is just 50 m to Norra Dryckesgränd. It takes 15 minutes to walk from the Central Station, depending on how fast you walk.

Cycling
If you come from North, there are cycle tracks along both the west and east sides of the Old Town (Skeppsbron and Munkbron). You can park your bicycle alongside the wall in the lane, and it is easy to lock it to the iron grating.

Stockholm public transport (SL)
If you travel by subway, you can choose to travel to Slussen or Gamla Stan subway stations. It then takes five minutes to walk to Alstra’s office from either station. If you travel by bus, routes 2, 43, 55, 76 stop right outside, at Räntmästartrappan.
