checkbox server edition installed survey software

Checkbox server edition is for customers who require an on-premise survey solution hosted on their own servers. Offers the ultimate in survey privacy, security, and integration capabilities. Optional support plans available.

In addition to Checkbox’s family of online subscription options, we also provide our survey software in a free-standing “server edition,” which is available for on-premise installation. Using Checkbox server edition gives you complete control of your survey data and infrastructure. It’s ideal for customers with restrictive security or privacy policies, and for those who wish to maintain their own schedule of upgrades and new feature releases.

The server edition of Checkbox is sold via a perpetual license, which allows you to use the software for as long as you like, with no recurring fees. We also offer two types of optional support packages alongside our software.

Microsoft .NET-Based Architecture

Checkbox is built on the Microsoft .NET framework. Our software is highly secure, and designed for scalability, reliability, and high performance. The server edition can be installed on both physical servers and virtual instances, including Amazon Web Services, Rackspace Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and VMware Servers.

The server edition’s client-side experience is 100% web-based. Survey respondents and internal users need only a browser to create, take, and analyze Checkbox surveys. No additional client software is required.

Checkbox survey software remains in active development. We release updates several times a year. Server-version customers with an annual support plan are free to download and install updates on whatever schedule they wish, although we do recommend staying current, to take advantage of the best that our software has to offer.

Active Directory Support

With an enterprise license to Checkbox’s server edition, you receive full support for Microsoft Active Directory. Save time for survey users and administrators by allowing them to login using your existing Active Directory. You can map existing Active Directory membership groups to Checkbox roles. This allows you to set permissions easily, without the need to replicate your existing group structure. For example, all members of “Marketing” can be automatically given the Survey Editor role in Checkbox.

If you have multiple domains in your Active Directory Forest, no problem. Checkbox server edition supports using an unlimited number of Active Directory domains.

Web Farm Support

An enterprise license also brings compatibility with popular hardware and software load balancing and clustering tools, including Microsoft’s Network Load Balancer (NLB) and Amazon Web Service’s Elastic Load Balancer (ELB). See technical requirements.

White Label & OEM

OEM and white-label licenses are available for Checkbox survey software. Software developers, market research companies, and other types of organizations can create new revenue streams by embedding Checkbox technology into their own products, or by sub-licensing our survey software as a private label application.

An OEM or white label license spares resource-aware development organizations from having to build their own survey modules by offering a highly extensible platform that’s easy to integrate with any application capable of communicating via Checkbox’s .NET API or web services. Our developer tools make it easy for OEM & white-label license holders to re-brand and customize Checkbox software for a seamless end-user experience.

Customize, Integrate & Extend

All server edition licenses include free use of our suite of web services, which provides extended flexibility in customizing Checkbox to meet your organization’s survey-program needs. For even more thorough customization and extension, use the Checkbox SDK or source code.

*Excludes source code to Checkbox framework code, licensing modules, and any third party components that are embedded in the Checkbox survey software product. Source code licenses are available for internal customer use only. If you wish to embed our source code in a product to sell, an OEM license is required as well.
