E-Tabs and Merlinco Alliance

Windows 10

E-Tabs and Merlinco have formed a strategic partnership, with a seamless link between their respective analysis and reporting platforms to create a powerful research insight platform.

E-Tabs and Merlinco, industry leaders in survey reporting and analysis software respectively, announce a new strategic partnership allowing seamless integration of their tools.

Users of MERLIN or MERLINPLUS are able to export their cross-tables into TabsML format which can be imported directly into the E-Tabs Enterprise solution for full report automation, or into E-Tabs Graphique for instant PowerPoint charting. This combination of tools provides the most powerful and flexible survey analysis and reporting platform available.

Please contact Merlinco for more information.

A new video has been uploaded on our home page to give visitors to our website an overview of the Merlinco product range. The video has a commentary but, for those without audio facilities, it should still be useful. We plan to add other videos about specific products in due course.

Three new MERLIN clients


2015 got off to a great start, with three new clients buying MERLIN. Two of them took MERLIN training in January:

ComRes is a consultancy specialising in using opinion research to inform organisations’ corporate reputation, public policy and communications strategies. ComRes will be using MERLIN for in house data production and analysis.

Data Liberation

Data Liberation is a specialist technology consultancy with a suite of products and services designed to make life easier for Market Research agencies and their customers. They will be using MERLIN to help with the backend processing of their largest and most complex project. Merlinco, who pride themselves on developing the software in response to customer demand, have made several enhancements to MERLIN to meet Data Liberation’s needs.

We are pleased to announce this new release of our software with major improvements to the production of Excel tables in both MERLIN and MERLINPLUS.

Users of Merlinco software benefit from a continuous program of developments – not just when there is a major new version.

Merlinco will be exhibiting at Understand (part of Marketing Week Live) at Olympia on 25-26th June. This is a good opportunity to meet clients and old friends, as well as new prospects, so please visit us at stand 474. Amongst other things, we will be demonstrating our MPI-Mobile interviewing module, which has recently been re-written to run on a range of mobile devices.


MERLIN Seminar Re-run?


We received very positive feedback from those attending the MERLIN seminar on 15th May but, unfortunately, a number of our clients were unable to attend on that day. We are therefore thinking of staging a re-run later in the year … so do let us know if you would be interested.
