What do you like best?

Web based access is a good feature of dedoose Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have had a lot of trouble with customer service. It took them over a month to generate an invoice. Then it was wrong. They do not answer the phone so you can not talk to a live person. It takes them days to respond to emails. Frankly, it has disrupted my research. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Web-based is great but the customer support is lacking. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No benefits over NVivo and Hyperresearch at this time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that dedoose allows you to work together on a project simultaneously. For me, I work with dedoose only for coding purposes, coding for a research project. And dedoose is helpful that I can access dedoose easily through that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how the home page of dedoose is actually quite hard to navigate when you first start using it. There are a lot of components, features, and things going on with the home page dashboard. And there are multiple tabs as well. This set up makes it a bit hard for someone who is new to using dedoose and needs to figure out how to navigate through the tabs and etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Dedoose is great for coding, but this is only what I have used it for. In addition to this, I do know that dedoose is also used for recruiting purposes in research studies. If you would like to recruit participants for a reserach study that is online, I do know that dedoose is good for this - I heard from other colleagues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use dedoose to solve coding disrepancies for a research project. Two people on team (the two coders) have coded text based on behavioral targets, and I use Dedoose to log in to help them resolve any coding disrepancies and check that both independent coders are on the same page.

benefits - dedoose is easy to use in that regard. I know to go to the tab "Media" and click on the project I am working on and just work in there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is free, user -friendly, and has added product feature of importing all sorts of data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Two points:

1.Needs flash upgrade to login to the page.

2.Multiple file upload at a time(import) takes a lot of time. However, sequential import(one-by-one) is takes very less time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think for research analysis,dataset preparation, data validation, analytics this is one of the best software and much easier to operate than Excel. for e.g. Pivot tables etc. Also, make sure your flash is upgraded for any browser you use as the software doesn't have integrated Adobe flash in their software and it is needed externally. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am in research field and this software is used for research analysis basically text-analysis for preparation of data-set , defining of features, dimensions etc, coding of data in spreadsheet is a cumbersome effort. Dedoose make's the text/content analysis very easy, along-with import/export feature to different file formats. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I am using dedoose for a research project that involved coding focus group transcripts. My favorite thing about it is that it allows you to see what codes other have already suggested, and this is great because it makes the process a lot more efficient and allows us to build on each others work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I am a fairly new user, and have not run into anything that I do not like yet. However, when I first started it took be a bit to figure out where everything is located, but now that I know the basics the app seems pretty straightforward. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is great for research teams whose members are not located in the same place. It makes coding of interviews and focus groups really easy to coordinate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using dedoose for a university research project. Our team is not always in the same location, and dedoose makes it easier to continue collaborating when we are not meeting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
