**NEW** OS2 Overview
In the past when you ordered Online LIFO® Surveys and BCon reports, BCon used the "honor system". You would obtain login information for your clients and then you would inform us of your order. BCon is no longer using the honor system. We are required to manage the orders for online surveys and reports (Result reports and Summary reports are available without authorization) and authorize your account to create survey login codes.

In order to meet BCon's requirements --- and to make it easy for you to place and order we have created an order form for ordering surveys and other materials. We will make it a priority and make every effort to authorize OS2 orders the same day they are received, at times circumstances may prevent same day processing, please allow for this in your scheduling.

The New OS2 system offers two options to access the LIFO® Online survey.

Managed Participant Mode (MPM): If you do not require security of data, you use the MPM mode.

  • MPM requires you to enter participant names, e-mail addresses online or upload
  • You have the option of personalizing the letter OS2 sends with "need by date", etc.
  • The OS2 system will automatically send information to your clients.

Codes-Only Mode (COM): COM is designed to meet the strictest privacy requirements. COM generates survey codes only, thereby restricting access of personal or private data to the client only.

  • You obtain code for your client(s) and assign code for each individual.
  • You send your client an e-mail with code and directions for accessing the survey.
  • The results are saved with only the code. No name is attached. When you and your client receive results it will show only the code you assigned.

In addition the new OS2 system:

  • Allows you to choose the language desired for completing the LIFO® Survey.
  • Will allow you to start a survey --- stop, and return if necessary.
  • Has additional surveys online and more translations to come!
  • Provides the option of OS2 system to automatically send login information, reminders, et, when using the MPM.
