Catapult is a not-for-profit design firm that provides design services to NGOs, Foundations and Social enterprises to bring product and service design to underserved communities overlooked by traditional design models.

The platform is used to document a robust set of insights, grounded in real stories and women’s experiences to help product developers, researchers and organisations create the right type of products, systems and services that help women prevent unwanted pregnancies throughout their reproductive journeys.

Custom analysis views to understand data across participants and unearth patterns and insights.

Objective of Collaboration

Manage Research Across Multiple Countries

The initial impetus to collaborate was driven by the uncertainties related to the pandemic and international travel. The project and philosophy evolved for the Catapult team (in North America) to support PIs working with local teams of researchers, collaborating on research design across countries.

The platform is a closed set-up. Only those who have been registered are allowed access based on specific roles depending on which research team they’re on, or if they’re in the Catapult or client team.

Templates vary by country and depend on the objective of a particular round of research. It also allows for the note taker to put in raw notes, and then annotate various fragments from it by adding comments and insights where relevant.

A participant manager dashboard helps the teams and managers track the research and milestones. Each participant is tagged with a unique  anonymised participant ID to aid the filtering of data during analysis and build a larger story of a participant across various rounds of research.

Analysis and Synthesis

Given the size of the sample across countries, and the rich insights gained from each participant, the platform needs to play a role in supporting the analysis of the data as well.

The platform’s analysis view allow for the teams as well as product developers and researchers to view annotated fragments and responses. These views allow for filtering based on participant demographics to gain deeper insight to bring into offline synthesis processes. 

Presentation of Insights, Prototypes

After various rounds of research, a version of the platform will be made available to key stakeholders to consume the insights and engage with the stories and personas that represent the women who formed the sample of the study.

Current Status

As of June 2022, the teams are carrying out the third round of research, and the platform and analysis views continue to evolve as data starts coming in.
