Cassandre was designed in order to assist qualitative analysis in humanities and social sciences. It is used in Human Resources management, in Communication, in consulting, in R&D et in humanities and social sciences (sociology, anthropology, geography, economic sciences, philology, psychology, learning, pedagogy, philosophy...).

Cassandre helps to combine one (or several) texts corpus(es) and one (of several) analytical framework(s). Although it can be used as a desktop application, the software is designed to support collaborative work.

How it works

Cassandre helps the researchers to build analytical frameworks consistent with their hypotheses. With such a companion, the researchers chooses, in the material, keywords or idioms as accurate candidate surrogates for investigated phenomena. The software finds all excerpts that belong these keywords/idioms, so that all exerpts related to a phenomenon can be compared. Comparisons help to refine the hypotheses or raise new questions. And so on, the interactive analysis goes on...
