Knowsi is a product that started with my experience and frustrations as a Design Researcher. The tools we use are fragile, ad-hoc, and borrowed from other disciplines. Plus, they aren't particularly human-centered. So that needs to change.
Knowsi starts with Consent and Privacy at its core because good qualitative research is built on trust. Researchers hold an incredible power assymetry over their participants– a necessary but uncomfortable tradeoff in good qualitative research. Knowsi strives to build the equity of participants without undermining the needs and security of the researcher by providing great privacy tools for participants, while enhancing the communication and collection options of the researchers.
Our roadmap is focused on making a great experience for participants, useful tools for researchers, and first-class privacy compliance tools for businesses.
Knowsi is a SaaS application run by a small, non-venture backed company. We're starting our pricing off on a cost-base: we need to cover the early costs of building and maintaining this application while also testing and building it with you. That means it's going to be buggy sometimes, or have some things missing.
As we develop the product, we'll be increasing the price commensurate with increased functionality. We'll also experiment with our model a bit, and try to involve you in that.
One thing we can gurantee: you price will always be locked in for 1 year. Your individual price will never increase more than 25% per year. That means that if you sign up with us today at $5/mo, your subscription will be max about $12.20/mo in 5 years time. You might be getting $30/mo worth of features and functionality, but you're still going to be paying $12.20.
Are there new features you'd like to see, or things that aren't working like they need to?
