Highlight the important parts of your text data and analyze them in minutes

LiGRE’s codification tool helps you quickly link important text fragments to your research’s analytical concepts, allowing you to get the most out of your data, whether audio or video recordings, qualitative survey results, interview transcripts, or any other large body of texts.

In conventional qualitative data analysis software, this process typically requires a steep learning curve that can be daunting. With LiGRE, it’s as easy as highlighting in a book.

Work with team members on your projects’ documents

Follow the evolution of your respondents throughout your research

The respondent management module will allow you to track your respondents’ progress and compare their perspectives easily.

Import your codification tree or create it from scratch

Define independent variables to refine the socio-demographic profile of your respondents.

Add memos to the components of your codification tree with one click. Manually set the weight of your fragments to reflect their importance in your research, and much more.
