I am often asked what is the best software for cross tabulations, tables, crosstabs or whatever you call them. There is a huge choice of products ranging from high end products like MRDCL, Merlin, Quantum down to some free basic tools – and not forgetting Excel. But, QPSMR is a serious contender, but is it the best fit for you?
The answer to the question about what is the best software for cross tabulations, in fact, will depend on the type of users, the type of work, the size of the projects you want to run and, perhaps, your budget.
So, the best product will vary from company to company, but the feedback we constantly get from QPSMR users is that they love QPSMR because it is easy to use. This means that once they have had basic training, users can become productive quickly.
Ease of use is not the only benefit of QPSMR. The other major benefit is that it can handle the biggest of projects. Its speed of processing large surveys or large numbers of tables is unmatched. The other benefit of QPSMR is that it is ideal for handling data entry of any volume of paper questionnaires or for CATI surveys. The free use of the data entry module means that you can have literally thousands of data entry staff at no extra cost.
QPSMR is consequently a good fit for various types of users. Some good examples would be:
QPSMR has its core market where it is an ideal product. Of course, there are situations where QPSMR is not a good fit. Here’s some examples:
Well, QPSMR is reliable, established, but, above all, easy to use even for quite complex projects. And, anecdotally, users report that with QPSMR, you rarely need support as it’s obvious how to use it. That’s echoed by our support team who report that QPSMR support requests are very low.
A QPSMR licence entitles you to an unlimited number of free data entry licences. If you buy, a single QPSMR licence, you can have as many free data entry licences as you wish. QPSMR also allows you to output projects to Reflect. Reflect is a free tool that you can distribute to colleagues or clients so that they carry out secondary analysis from your projects.
