Key challenges in research

There is much pressure on researchers and PhD students to publish more papers, get cited more and of course to get more funding. But qualitative research takes time and current practices do not ease the situation.

Losing the context

It can be difficult to easily find key themes in a text when the researcher needs to revisit data after a period of time

Coordinating large teams

Productivity is significantly lower when a team of 2 or more runs a research project simultaneously or across geographies

Slow process

Every hour lost due to slow transcription and analysis leads to 10x increase delays in research paper dissemination rate

What differentiates Scrintal?

GDPR emphasis

We know how important sensitive data is to researchers and take necessary measures to keep their data safe.

Ease of use

Simplicity is key! We only integrate features that researchers need and suggest to keep the interface clean.

Simultaneous collaboration

Large teams can transcribe, highlight and exchange notes seamlessly in a shared workspace.

"For our research project “Solidarity in times of a pandemic+ Latin America, we conducted over 600 interviews in Spanish and Portuguese that had to be transcribed as quickly as possible. Using Scrintal helped us save a ton of time by allowing multiple teams to work on their transcriptions simultaneously, allowing us to get our project off the ground."

Take control of your time

Thanks to the technological advancements in speech to text, there are minimal differences between different automated transcription services. What sets one tool apart from the others is its target group focus and how it works to simplify editing draft transcript texts.

Change speaker names with one click

Once you type in the name of speakers, you can add new ones with one click instead of retyping all over again.

Highlight key points and add notes

Scrintal has rigorous GDPR procedures, and we offer Data Processing Agreement to each user.

Strong encryption

No one reads your data. Scrintal encrypts all data using the industry-standard AES 256.

Happy researchers

We are thrilled to hear that almost 60% of our current users gave Scrintal a try because it was recommended by their colleagues and other researchers.

Transcribing interviews is one of the most tedious but also important tasks of the qualitative researcher. Scrintal provided a good transcription quality and an intuitive and collaborative interface to edit transcriptions which greatly eases the burden of transcribing interviews. We are now offering it to all the PhD students in our department.

Our research project involved quite an extensive number of interviews which needed to be transcribed fast due to grant deadlines - Scrintal helped our team of 8 work simultaneously thanks to its collaboration feature which was a game-changer. Scrintal team was extremely responsive and helpful whenever we had any issues.

I randomly came across with Scrintal and was very pleasantly surprised with the simple and easy to use interface of the platform. As someone interested in qualitative research, I really liked the fact that they offer data processing agreements before taking any action.
