    El interés por la comprensión holística de las organizaciones se manifiesta en la proliferación de artículos basados en metodologías cualitativas. Este hecho no se ve acompañado con el empleo de herramientas que contribuyan a la validez y fiabilidad de las investigaciones. Este trabajo pone de manifiesto la existencia de programas específicos para el tratamiento de datos cualitativos y explica la contribución que realizan en las diferentes fases del proceso de investigación. También analiza las ventajas e inconvenientes que se derivan de su uso y reflexiona acerca de su repercusión en la investigación de la Economía de la Empresa. / The proliferation of texts based on qualitative methodologies makes clear that researchers are taking a growing interest in the holistic understanding of the reality of organizations. This fact is not being supported by a development of tools which contribute to make such researchs more reliable and more valid. The following work gives account of the existence of specific qualitative data processing softwares, and explains -through examples taken from an empirical research- how they contribute to various stages of the researching process. It also analyzes the pros and cons of their use, and comes to a set of conclusions concerning how they may affect research on Management.
