Data drives the world and every business in it, making its management an inescapable and invaluable aspect of your business growth. For it to be a successful endeavor, you need to have data in its most valuable form after filtering the raw data obtained from the various sources. The qualitative data available also needs to be modified, as using it for quantitative purposes without the necessary transformation towards gaining a quantitative value is not possible. Qualitative data coding can provide that quantification you require.
Data coding goes to the very core of the respondents’ data and extracts the true value it contains. Being the precursor to data analysis and acting on vast quantities of raw, qualitative data, coding requires a deft touch to accurately identify pertinent segments of data to assign the corresponding preliminary codes, filter and refine them until the most precise and concise codes are left. Care must also be taken to not eliminate the data deemed excessive as it could contain value in some other form; the researcher must only summarize the segments deemed useful after the quantification by coding. You need the support and expert touch of a quality data coding company to make the process a successful one.

Qualitative data is actually a valuable asset because it contains the full expression of the respondent when answering a survey’s questions. It is, in fact, the default manner of obtaining market research data since most, if not all, respondents tend to utilize their emotional experience with the product or service offered when explaining it to surveys. Thus, when coding happens and experts are tasked with the selection of important parts of the data, they have to condense long sentences of qualitative nature into summaries of quantitative quality that can be further processed in the proceeding analysis stages. They do this by reading the sentences, or listening to them as the case may be, and recognizing the most pertinent subject of that sentence. They note that phrase and attach it to the sentence by associating a numerical value to it. This value helps in the extraction of the relevant data whenever required. Thus, what started out as large quantities of qualitative, raw data gets summarized into snippets that contain quantitative value and are retrievable due to the numerical values associated with them.
The march of technology towards increasing automation has given rise to Artificial Intelligence and machine learning algorithms that can expedite any computation related tasks multifold due to the ability to learn as it works on its tasks. This ability has made AI a standard across industry types, with the data management and analysis sector lapping it up most eagerly due to the multitude of benefits it offers. As a data management company dedicated to being at the forefront of the industry’s trends, SunTec Data is always innovating and adopting the latest technologies to provide its services. AI/ML for data coding is a standard feature of our bespoke data services. We utilize the latest algorithms to conduct the coding process as it provides the accuracy and speed of processing that is unparalleled. It is most suited for the task as the amount of data that needs to be sifted through and filtered during the process is substantial, and what would take days to complete takes a few hours at most. What it means for you is reduced expenses and excellent data coding results with quick turnaround times, helping you to gain the all-important early bird advantage in the market.
Data coding is a complex process where a person, usually assisted by a software, extracts the most pertinent concepts out of qualitative data for the sake of attributing quantitative values to it during market research process, after gathering the often large quantity of customer or prospect feedback data from multiple survey sources. Experts performing the coding have to rely on coding methodologies to ease the process and make it less vulnerable to giving erroneous results. The two most common coding concepts applied are In-Vivo coding and Descriptive coding. With in-vivo coding, the respondent’s original quotes are retained when the relevant code is created. They’ll contain the direct phrases and words of the participant, along with the original voice/tone. The idea is to preserve the originality of the responses in the data collected. In contrast, descriptive coding is used to create codes that contain the core topic or summary of the feedback. These codes use top-level themes as their root. It captures the essence of the respondent’s statements without diluting it too much, while also affording the flexibility to render the codified data more digestible to the proceeding purpose for which it is to be used. There are others like binary coding and process coding, but what they have in common is that the coding results will vary depending on the subjective interpretation of the data by the professional performing it.
SunTec Data’s data coding accuracy is a hallmark of the service offered. We insist on giving your market research data the qualitative data coding it needs to truly have the impact on your business it is meant to.

They will be assisted by sophisticated AI/ML algorithms that not only hasten the process but also render the entire thing that much more accurate. Our AI models are trained enough to detect possible valuable data and assign the most relevant numerical values to them for improved ease of extraction from the database whenever required. The end result is a culmination of all of these to give your data the transformation it needs to undergo rigorous analysis and provide valuable information that you can use readily to better strategize your marketing and overall business operations.
