The versatility of the HatchTank platform for online qualitative

In the world of market research, technology has become a key player, revolutionizing the way we gather insights. When it comes to choosing the best qualitative research software, a versatile platform is crucial for ensuring a seamless research experience and maximizing the value of the collected data. Not only will the right tool enhance participant engagement it will also ensure you’re collecting rich insights.

HatchTank was built with this in mind. We understand that technology is meant to make our lives easier, not more complicated. That's why we are here. We are invested in developing features both you and the participant will use without sacrificing mental exertion on the technology itself.
Here are a few features that make the HatchTank platform one of the most versatile online qualitative research tools in the market.

any browser any deviceAny Browser, Any Device:

The ability to participate in research studies from any browser or device is a game-changer. Whether it's a smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer, participants have the freedom to engage in the research process anytime, anywhere. This flexibility not only increases participation rates but also ensures that valuable insights can be captured from a diverse range of participants.

segment participantsSegment Participants: 

Effective research requires targeting the right audience. Our segmentation feature allows researchers to place participants into different groups, ensuring that insights are gathered from specific demographics or consumer segments. By honing in on the right audience, businesses can obtain highly relevant and actionable insights that drive their decision-making processes.

interactive and engaging methodologiesInteractive and Engaging Methodologies:

Hatchtank was specifically designed for qualitative research that is interactive and engaging. From video uploads to open-ended discussions and multimedia uploads, this platform enables participants to express themselves in rich and in-depth ways. By creating an immersive and interactive experience, researchers can delve deep into participants' thoughts, emotions, and experiences, resulting in valuable qualitative data.

concept relations

Concept Rotations:

This feature exposes participants to different concepts or options, enabling them to compare and provide feedback on each one. Researchers can rotate the order in which concepts are shown to ensure unbiased feedback and insights.  


response piping

Response Piping: 

Piping is a powerful feature that allows researchers to incorporate participants' previous answers into subsequent questions. By dynamically adapting the questions, researchers can explore specific areas of interest and encourage deeper engagement from participants.


video transcripts and instant translations Video Transcripts and Instant Translations:

Researchers can easily review and analyze video responses with transcripts within the same platform. This cuts down on time spent managing more market research service providers and shuffling additional files. Time that can be used to dig deeper into the insights and improve the output.


branching and logicBranching/Logic:

Branching or logic features allow researchers to personalize the research journey for each participant. By tailoring subsequent questions based on previous responses, participants encounter prompts that align with their unique perspectives. This personalized approach enhances engagement, as participants feel that their opinions are valued and understood, leading to more meaningful insights.

Some in the technology innovation space may argue Occam’s Razor. That more is not better and distracts from the core role of the technology being developed. In developing the HatchTank platform, we take simplicity to heart. Our disciplined approach to evaluating potential features is actually pretty easy. We ask, “Will this feature make it easier for a researcher to get the information they need so that they can spend more time on the insights?”

We argue that to make an online research study easy, efficient, and insightful, having all of the tools in one platform is the simplest solution.
