About Us:

We are a friendly, dynamic and hard-working bunch.

We love data!


QDAS is a consortium of researchers, methodologists and trainers. We have expertise in a range of qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods approaches to analysis in a variety of academic, applied, government and commercial fields.


Our philosophy is to facilitate. We will always tailor to your needs, rather than impose ‘ideal’ ways of working.


Together, we have more than 50 years’ experience conducting research and training researchers to use qualitative software (CAQDAS).


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 thus provide unbiased advice on the use of software tools based on our own experiences and evaluations.
