Access to all your survey data in one place
Crunch enables you to have direct access to the data from your research studies in one place and in one format.
No need for banner books or tab books
Because you can do any analysis you like, you don't need to specify your data cuts in advance. Once you have a neat and tidy dataset, you can make your own cut of the data quickly and easily, including Excel tab outputs.
New visual ways to find your story in the data
You can instantly turn a table into a chart and back again, enabling a visual means to quickly identify a story. You can also sort the values in different ways and quickly swap the rows and columns.
Furthermore, Crunch highlights cells of interest on a scale enabling you to quickly spot where differences may lie. Crunch automatically applies cell shading based on statistical significance, but you can also customize to suit your needs.
New ways to collaborate with colleagues
Crunch is a collaborative platform: the variables you make and the analyses you save, you can share with an unlimited number of colleagues (or clients).
New ways to deliver to clients and stakeholders
As you review your survey data, you can bookmark interesting findings into a deck. Dashboards are a way to turn bookmarked findings into an elegant deliverable for sharing. Dashboards are made via a drag-and-drop interface.
Furthermore, there is no additional cost for dashboards, and you can share with anyone you like. Crunch is a perfect way to experiment with interactive dashboards as a deliverable — enabling your clients and stakeholders to see their data and answer their questions (removing the to/fro with you).
