What makes Quirkos Different?

Quirkos was designed by qualitative researchers to be the software they wanted to use, without the frustrations of other packages. The live visual interface keeps you close to the data, and it's designed with a few flexible features, rather than a clutter of things you don't need.

Our licences don’t expire, auto-save makes sure you don’t lose your work, and Quirkos is identical on Mac, Windows or Linux. If you’ve not used qualitative software before, Quirkos is a straight forward step-up from trying to do analysis with highlighters, sticky notes, Word or Excel.

Who uses Quirkos?

Quirkos is used in more than 300 universities across the world by qualitative researchers and students who trust it with projects big and small, and teach it in their courses. Organisations use it for evaluation and feedback, making the most of user comments and open-ended survey responses.

It’s also used in market research where time is a premium, and projects have to get off the ground quickly and get straight to actionable results.

But the simple interface leads to use in citizen led and participatory research, empowering communities and 3rd sector organisations to make powerful cases for service improvement.
