Forskning visar att handläggare upplever olika fördelar och nackdelar i användandet av ASI. Av resultatet framgår att handläggarna använder ASI Grund regelbundet i sitt arbete men att det finns svårigheter med att implementera ASI Uppföljning. Samtliga handläggare upplever att ASI Grund är tidskrävande och har en del invändningar mot vissa av frågorna.
