We teach ATLAS.ti, Dedoose, MAXQDA, NVivo, QDA Miner, Quirkos, SPSS, Transana

We have established relationships with all the major qualitative software developers, and contribute to the development of their tools, via beta-testing and other feedback mechanisms.

Yet we remain wholly commercially independent from them and we provide completely independent advice on appropriate tools depending on your methodological and practical needs.

To find out more about these software programs, visit the developer websites, or read the reviews on the CAQDAS Networking Project website.

There are also several online resources which are useful starting points for making an informed decision.


We have had a working professional relationship with QDAS for almost ten years. Firstly at a “hands on” multi-day tutorial on the use of the software to support qualitative study methodology. The ability to work competently with groups as well as individuals was outstanding. Since then we have maintained a professional consultive relationship through the analysis of two research studies. We applaud their willingness to answer the same questions more than once, to meet you where you’re at in your project, and uncanny talent to tailor advice to particular situations and needs. We have begun data collection for our third study and are quite comfortable knowing that QDAS will be our “go-to” expert to fully utilize qualitative software to support our analysis. As experienced nurse educators, teaching/learning is our core business. We recognize the characteristics of individuals who engage effortlessly in the art of teaching to support active learning. QDAS provides those people.
