Kommentare: We use it for structuring team discussions so the participants are forced to declare and distill the fundamental criteria that underlie their trade-offs and priorities – the weights and investment priorities that emerge are immediately useful, but the method also builds group cohesion and understanding. We conduct formal Qualitative Analysis of transcripts of the group discussion recorded while the team performs the group experiment, so that outsiders can better understand the rationale behind the choices. Our outputs from 1000minds include formal peer reviewed science journal articles , confidential in-house reports for decision-makers, or sometimes just ways of building social capital in informal sandpit discussions of combatants that leave feeling heard and better about each other!

Vorteile: 1000minds provides an elegant, efficient and transparent way of reaching decisions about ‘wicked problems’ like sustainability that are contested by multiple ‘layers and players’ that all want their say. The software is flexible - decisions can be reversed, constraint customized, levels can be interpolated if time constraints forces their exclusion. Design features allow scientific reliability – there are modules for accuracy checking, tracing of the decision path, and filtering out junk responses from random clickers when used by individuals. The simulation module allows the user to design a practical experiment and predict the number of choices in advance. Cell phones can be linked to allow more effective and anonymized voting in group work. The underlying PAPRIKA algorithm makes the choice experiments as fast as possible so that concentration of the participants is maintained, so more trade-offs can be tested in each session. Best of all, the users have confidence in the outcome and process because software has proven credentials after years of use by diverse uses.

Nachteile: The graphics and data reports produced during group sessions are difficult to read by people at the back of a large meeting room. We usually solve this by taking a pause once the choice experiment is complete in order to transfer the results to PowerPoint (bolder graphics, colored lines and fonts are needed for readability).

Kommentare: I have used this software in a wide variety of practical applications. The results have been the same every time. I have been able to survey large (and small) groups of people in a short space of time and gather the information that's needed to make decisions. The feedback from participants has been consistently positive "easy to use", "intuitive", "the results are as I expected"....

Vorteile: The software has an intuitive design which makes it very easy to use, both from a developer's point of view in creating a survey and from a participant's point of view in completing it. Surveys can be designed to target specific audiences using the customisable options which means that the right information is being collected in a low-cost, efficient way. In-built quality checks ensure confidence in the data and is just one of the features that sets this software apart from others.

Nachteile: I am yet to come across any cons with the new version of 1000minds.

Vorteile: - Simplifies incredibly complicated analysis to insights usable for students - nearly impossible for us to do conjoint analysis without it!! Just so much useful information to be gleaned from a single set of surveys.
- High flexibility and customisability
- Easy to set up mailing list/get and track survey respondents through the pipeline
- Simple survey interface for respondents
- Awesome support and expertise from the 1000minds team (Paul!)

Nachteile: - Sometimes a suboptimal user experience for administrators/analysts (naturally, given the complexity of the analysis...) and survey respondents (sometimes slow or progress is ambiguous) -- for us, setting up was made significantly easier by customer support from the team

Highly recommended. Best in class

Kommentare: I've used 3 of the most popular "alternatives" and unequivocally recommend 1000minds. Exceedingly powerful yet the 'easiest' and most customer centric product I've used (enterprise solutions & popular "off the shelf" software). Pros
-Seamless Export and Import data directly.
-Packed full of complete examples
-A wealth of support documentation, hints & tips
-Short learning curve
-Accurate decision modelling meodology
-Great support
-Too many to name. I'm still discovering new positives almost daily
Cons
-Really only the landing page/UI. A lot of the 'power' in this product is revealed in layers. The UI is 'unique' yet logically intuitive.
