Mac-Based Qualitative Research Software


Until the launch of Dedoose, if you wanted to Mac-based qualitative research, you were out of luck. You could clunkily try to run something like NVivo or Atlas.ti from within its own Windows partition, which really defeated the purpose of having a Mac in the first place (as well as cutting even further into your budget). Or you could opt to run the Mac version of HyperRESEARCH, a legacy qualitative research software package whose functionality left a lot to be desired.

With the 2010 release of Dedoose, that dilemma has become a thing of the past. Because Dedoose is a true web application, it runs happily on ANY modern operating system from Windows … to Linux … to, of course, Apple’s own OS X. And it’ll run on your iPad too! Equally important, there’s no software to mess with – our latest and greatest enhancements are right there at your fingertips.

We’re sure you’ll love everything about Dedoose, from our intuitive toolsets to our “plays well with others” interoperability to our cost-conscious pricing model to our industry-leading data security standards to our innovative team research infrastructure. And you’ll enjoy it all, seamlessly, from within that beautiful personal computing environment that is Apple’s signature. The future of qualitative research is here.

As confirmed Mac lovers ourselves, we’re dedicated to making Dedoose the obvious choice for Mac-based qualitative research.
