Quicken Loans is the nation's largest online mortgage lender and is headquartered in Detroit, Michigan. The company has closed nearly two million home loans since being founded in 1985.

Quicken Loans uses electronic survey and voting tools to collect feedback from their team members. Feedback may be gathered over the course of days with a survey or instantly by voting at meetings.

Currently, Quicken Loans uses third party survey and voting tools. Use of these third-party tools is cumbersome and results often fail to meet the needs of Quicken Loans.

Designed in collaboration with our clients from Quicken Loans, our Survey and Voting Web Apps provide survey and voting tools that are completely internal to Quicken Loans.

Using our web apps, team members create surveys and voting ballots, take surveys and vote, and review survey and voting results. Surveying and voting can be done anonymously and restricted using Geo-Fencing. Results can be exported to Excel spreadsheets.

Our Survey and Vote Web Apps supports all modern desktop web browsers as well as many mobile devices.

Our application uses a Model-View-Controller architecture with the Microsoft Entity Framework along with jQuery and JavaScript. Microsoft SQL Server is used to store surveys, voting ballots and results.
