Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts.) is pleased to announce that it can now offer clients in the UK and Ireland, Germany, Austria and the Nordic countries the full Provalis range of market-leading software for analysing unstructured as well as structured data. Provalis Research (Montreal, Canada) is the world’s leading developer of text analytics platforms with ground-breaking qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods software.
Provalis Research software is used in a wide range of application domains such as media analysis, market research, survey analysis, incident reports and competitive intelligence. It helps researchers to improve product and business performance, raise quality and safety standards and fully understand customer reactions.
“We’ve been successfully distributing Provalis software in France through our SigmaPlus operation,” said Adept’s VP Marketing Europe Anna French. “Now we can build on that success to bring these extraordinarily useful tools to clients in the UK, Germany, Scandinavia and all 19 of the European countries in which we’re currently active.”
The premium product in the Provalis range is ProSuite, an integrated suite of tools that allow users to explore, analyse and relate both structured and unstructured data. Users can perform qualitative coding on documents and images using QDA Miner, apply powerful content analysis and text mining on textual data using WordStat, and perform advanced statistical analysis on numerical and categorical data using SimStat. The interoperability of these tools allows researchers to integrate numerical and textual data into a single project and to seamlessly move back and forth between quantitative and qualitative data analysis.
QDA Miner is an intuitive, easy-to-use, mixed methods qualitative data analysis software package for coding, annotating, retrieving and analysing both small and large collections of documents and images. It is used to analyse interview or focus-group transcripts, legal documents, journal articles, even entire books, as well as drawings, pictures, paintings and other visual documents.
WordStat is a content analysis and text mining tool for fast, precise processing of large amounts of unstructured information. It quickly extracts themes and trends from documents, customer feedback, interview transcripts, open-ended responses, websites, scientific literature, social media transcripts and any kind of report. It also allows precise measurement with a state-of-the-art quantitative content analysis method.
SimStat is an easy-to-use statistical software application offering a wide range of statistics, intuitive data and output management features. It includes its own scripting language to automate statistical analysis and to write small applications, interactive tutorials and computer assisted interviewing systems. A SimStat data file supports not only numerical and categorical data, dates and short alphanumeric variables but also memos and document variables.
Provalis text analysis software provides the tools to analyse and quantify open-ended survey questions, or any other form of customer feedback. Respondees can comment in their own words, giving richer and more valuable information than ordinary surveys with pre-defined or multiple-choice responses.
These tools can also classify and analyse opinions in reviews, blogs, media posts and documents of any type. They can be used to identify reactions to a brand image and so assess the brand’s ‘personality’. They can be used to study how specific topics are represented in media, to improve the effectiveness of communications. They provide a means of extracting and organising meaningful data from the literature, from reports, from websites and any other unstructured source, transforming textual data into valuable insights.
