The challenge with this sort of research is that once you’ve collected your information, what do you do with it? How do you quickly find the valuable answers that respondents are giving you from the collection of data you have across numerous sources? That’s where NVivo comes in. NVivo is software that supports qualitative and mixed methods research. It’s designed to help you organize, analyze and find insights in unstructured, or qualitative data like: interviews, open-ended survey responses, articles, social media and web content. When working with qualitative data, if you don’t use NVivo, your work will be more time consuming, challenging to manage, and hard to navigate.

NVivo gives you a place to organize and manage your material so that you can start to find insights in your data. With NVivo, your research is portable.
