Great for managerial decision making

We have used PAPRIKA model in 1000minds for many use cases including picking marketing strategy, budgeting, new employee team allocation.

Pros

It is very easy to build evaluation case, involve others, handle decisions that would be difficult to make. Alternatives, we use, like real modelling, C5.0, Monte Carlo are way less agile, more time consuming (on a scale 100* times as expensive and slow to implement). 1000minds & PAPRIKA is awesome when you have given criteria, given options and want sorted solutions by score in a situation, where relationships between all criteria are murky.

Cons

App gives you one answer of what's the best, second best... option (with score). This is what most people expect, so it's probably ok. But it doesn't have any "what if" analysis where you could for example clone some solution and modify some answers.

Reasons for Choosing 1000minds

It gives great solutions when used properly. It's fast and easy to run a study and get solution even when the problem studied is very complex and you don't have all information.

Efficient and transparent decision making for complex systems problem solving

We use it for structuring team discussions so the participants are forced to declare and distill the fundamental criteria that underlie their trade-offs and priorities – the weights and investment priorities that emerge are immediately useful, but the method also builds group cohesion and understanding. We conduct formal Qualitative Analysis of transcripts of the group discussion recorded while the team performs the group experiment, so that outsiders can better understand the rationale behind the choices. Our outputs from 1000minds include formal peer reviewed science journal articles , confidential in-house reports for decision-makers, or sometimes just ways of building social capital in informal sandpit discussions of combatants that leave feeling heard and better about each other!

Pros

1000minds provides an elegant, efficient and transparent way of reaching decisions about ‘wicked problems’ like sustainability that are contested by multiple ‘layers and players’ that all want their say. The software is flexible - decisions can be reversed, constraint customized, levels can be interpolated if time constraints forces their exclusion. Design features allow scientific reliability – there are modules for accuracy checking, tracing of the decision path, and filtering out junk responses from random clickers when used by individuals. The simulation module allows the user to design a practical experiment and predict the number of choices in advance. Cell phones can be linked to allow more effective and anonymized voting in group work. The underlying PAPRIKA algorithm makes the choice experiments as fast as possible so that concentration of the participants is maintained, so more trade-offs can be tested in each session. Best of all, the users have confidence in the outcome and process because software has proven credentials after years of use by diverse uses.

Cons

The graphics and data reports produced during group sessions are difficult to read by people at the back of a large meeting room. We usually solve this by taking a pause once the choice experiment is complete in order to transfer the results to PowerPoint (bolder graphics, colored lines and fonts are needed for readability).

Reasons for Choosing 1000minds

Our decision was based on the following benefits, in rank order (most important first) 1. Scientific rigor and proven track record 2. Ability to provide weights for individual users: we could then scale these weights against additional surveys to find associations between choices an ethnicity, gender, income, relevant roles and activities. The software allowed seamless connection to the survey modules so that a participant is threaded immediately to the personal questions upon completion of the choice experiment. 3. The way the choices are structured is intuitively easy for novices to understand in a series of single steps (paired comparisons) – this makes the outcome more reliable. 4. A free trial and friendly help allowed us to test before we invested. 5. Flexibility to work in groups or with individuals 6. Ability to go all the way from making the choices around underlying criteria to selection of investment alternatives

Incredibly powerful software

Pros

- Simplifies incredibly complicated analysis to insights usable for students - nearly impossible for us to do conjoint analysis without it!! Just so much useful information to be gleaned from a single set of surveys. - High flexibility and customisability - Easy to set up mailing list/get and track survey respondents through the pipeline - Simple survey interface for respondents - Awesome support and expertise from the 1000minds team (Paul!)

Cons

- Sometimes a suboptimal user experience for administrators/analysts (naturally, given the complexity of the analysis...) and survey respondents (sometimes slow or progress is ambiguous) -- for us, setting up was made significantly easier by customer support from the team

A simple to use, low-cost, effective way to get the information you need to make decisions

I have used this software in a wide variety of practical applications. The results have been the same every time. I have been able to survey large (and small) groups of people in a short space of time and gather the information that's needed to make decisions. The feedback from participants has been consistently positive "easy to use", "intuitive", "the results are as I expected"....

Pros

The software has an intuitive design which makes it very easy to use, both from a developer's point of view in creating a survey and from a participant's point of view in completing it. Surveys can be designed to target specific audiences using the customisable options which means that the right information is being collected in a low-cost, efficient way. In-built quality checks ensure confidence in the data and is just one of the features that sets this software apart from others.

Cons

I am yet to come across any cons with the new version of 1000minds.

Easy-to-use, practical software for different purposes

I had a good experience and would recommend the software for anyone who wants to conduct a simple conjoint analysis and has no (or only limited) prior experience with and knowledge of conjoint analysis.

Pros

What I especially liked was that the software/app is rather intuitive. You can easily find what you are looking for, you can even change the terms that are used, a feature which is especially helpful if you or your clients are not familiar with conjoint analysis and you want to use other terms (e.g., you can change the term "criteria" to "attribute", and this term is then displayed in all your graphs etc.). You also have the choice to upload images to your criteria levels. E.g., if one of your criteria is "price" and your levels are $ 200 and $ 500, you can also upload images of price tags. You can further choose whether you want only the image to be displayed for a certain level, only a verbal description, or both. One great plus of 1000minds is the great customer support. Whenever I was uncertain about something or needed help, I got a reply within a few hours. There was no problem that could not be solved.

Cons

This software maybe isn't for people who want to conduct conjoint analysis with full profiles. The software only allows for applying partial profiles.

The best way to start with conjoint

1000minds really helped me with my thesis, namely customer support. The product is designed to be a tool that helps you and not something you need to worry about.

Pros

Despite being a user-friendly and easy to use software that does not imply the user knowing much about the economic models behind all of it, but allows them to work with them, the customer service is simply the best. No one will feel lost with the care, quick replies and informative answers from the team. 10/10

Cons

Some features like conditional questions could be added.

Highly recommended. Best in class

I've used 3 of the most popular "alternatives" and unequivocally recommend 1000minds. Exceedingly powerful yet the 'easiest' and most customer centric product I've used (enterprise solutions & popular "off the shelf" software). Pros -Seamless Export and Import data directly. -Packed full of complete examples -A wealth of support documentation, hints & tips -Short learning curve -Accurate decision modelling meodology -Great support -Too many to name. I'm still discovering new positives almost daily Cons -Really only the landing page/UI. A lot of the 'power' in this product is revealed in layers. The UI is 'unique' yet logically intuitive.

Got the job done amazingly well

Pros

Used this for doing a conjoint study. Setting up the attributes was super easy. Setting up validation & exclusion rules was really intuitive. Post survey analytics were pretty amazing and now I'm much closer to knowing my customer than I was before. Thumbs up!

Cons

Not applicable. Everything was pretty sleek and fast.
