Can I work with other members of my research team in MarketSight?
Can we collaborate and analyze the same dataset simultaneously using the MarketSight software?
Yes. That’s one of the major reasons to choose MarketSight, actually. Because it’s a web-based statistical analysis software application, MarketSight is an ideal platform for sharing data, crosstabs, reports, and charts online. Everything you create can be shared – or not – based on the permissions you set up for the other users in your account.
Can I view individual response data in MarketSight?
Yes. In addition to creating crosstabs, charts, and new variables, it’s very easy to view individual responses in MarketSight by simply creating a Data Table. You can filter results on any variable, sort the table, and export it to Excel.
How does MarketSight handle verbatims or open-ended responses?
During dataset import, MarketSight reads all text variables and automatically determines if they are in fact open-ended responses, or if they are text-based categorical responses that should be treated as such and coded (which MarketSight then does, automatically). If they are open-ended responses, they will be displayed in MarketSight as text when viewed in a data table. MarketSight also offers the option of having those verbatims coded with keywords through a partnership with text analytics specialists at Language Logic.
Does MarketSight offer technical support or does that carry an additional cost?
Technical support is included with every subscription at no additional charge. Our support team is available via email and phone on all business days from 8:00 am to 8:00pm East Coast U.S. time. MarketSight also has great Help content and Online Training for all product features.

MarketSight has major updates several times each year and has many smaller updates throughout the year. All updates are included in the annual subscription. Updates are performed automatically and are done during off-peak hours, rarely impacting access to the servers. Documentation and training is provided for every new feature added to the system.
