Powerful Tools

From coding and retrieval to analysis and reporting, HyperRESEARCH puts you in charge.

Coding an interview is easy

  • Select any piece of data in a source for coding—text, image, audio, video, or PDF (coming soon).
  • See your codes in the margin of your data for easy scanning.
  • Analyze subtle interactions by coding audio and video recordings, transcripts, or both at the same time.
  • Automatically code source material based on keywords.

Reports provide customized summaries of your data

  • Click to jump from your code listing to the coded source data in context.
  • Review all your coding, or look at a selected subset.
  • Protect privacy by automatically masking sensitive information.
  • Slice and dice your data using HyperRESEARCH's sophisticated code relationship functions.

Annotate your coding

  • Create memos for each place where you've used a code—make notes to yourself, record your thoughts about the work in progress, or communicate with colleagues working on the same study.
  • Enter your descriptions and notes for each code.
  • Include your memos in reports and save them as separate documents.
  • Use your notes and journal entries as source documents and code them for easy retrieval.

Analysis tools include word cloud and code frequency statistics

  • Analyze your data set—or a selected subset—using our suite of tools.
  • Visualize your text data as a word cloud.
  • Summarize statistical data about code use and frequency throughout your study.
  • Install new tools as they become available.

Theory Builder

  • Go beyond coding and categorizing—use the Theory Builder to frame and test a hypothesis.
  • Create a model and check it against your data, as seen through the lens of your coding.
  • Track complex code relationships using our inference-based engine.

The Code Map shows you visual relationships

  • Build a visual representation of your codes and their relationships.
  • Map any group of codes you want to focus on, and save all your code maps for later use or expansion.
  • Use a code map as a powerful code selection tool: Select a set of codes based on how closely they're related, then analyze or create reports based on the networked codes.

Want to show the data for one code? With HyperRESEARCH, it's easy.
Need to see where you used this code and that code, but not this other code? That's easy too.
Want to pick out just the places where two codes were both used for the same text? Easy.
  • Selectively filter cases based on which codes you used in each case. (Unfiltered cases are hidden temporarily.)
  • Show and hide coding based on code relationships—show only the codes you want to work with.
  • Analyze and create reports based on the filtered set of codes and cases to create "subset studies" from the data you select.
  • Use the sophisticated Boolean editor to develop complex descriptions of code relationships—and save them for later use.

No Complications

Your software should make it easier to do your research, not harder. You have more important things to do than spend weeks learning a software package, so HyperRESEARCH offers a near-zero learning curve to help you get started.

Coding is a simple process

  • Start coding right away with simple, intuitive steps.
  • Our small-footprint, self-contained design approach means better performance—even if your computer isn't this year's model.
  • Your learning curve becomes a straight road with HyperRESEARCH.

Built-in help covers everything

  • Need some help? We have you covered with built-in, context-sensitive documentation.
  • If you're looking for live training, attend a webinar—from basics to advanced topics—or view the recording whenever it's convenient.
  • Explore our Technical Notes and documentation for in-depth articles on topics from organization to analysis.
  • Contact technical support for personal help.

Phenomenology? Ethnography? Multiple-case study? Mixed methods?
HyperRESEARCH supports them all—without locking you in.
Found a new approach? Reached a new stage? Re-organize your work any time.
Do it your way. Not somebody else's.
  • Divide your data into whatever analytic units work for your research—or look at it holistically.
  • Code as a team and merge your work into a single study file.
  • Sources and cases are independent, so a case can use more than one source.
  • (And, of course, you can use the same source file for more than one case—ideal for coding group interactions.)

For Mac or Windows

Fully cross-platform by design, HyperRESEARCH is with you whether you use a Mac, a PC... or both!

HyperRESEARCH looks and acts the same whether you're on Mac or Windows.

  • Full feature equality means you'll never be frustrated by being on the "wrong" system—all our features work the same way, whether you prefer Mac or Windows.
  • Move your work seamlessly between Mac and Windows.
  • Easily transfer and merge study files, no matter which system they were created on. Your platform-diverse research group can exchange work in progress without a hiccup.

Mac laptop at home and Windows desktop at work? No trouble.
Your team has Mac and Windows users? No problem.
Cross-platform from the ground up. No barriers.
  • Buy HyperRESEARCH and install and use it on your Mac, Windows system, or both—for two-platform use, there's nothing extra to buy .
