Our team of data collection experts primarily works with organizations in the local development sector. Our mobile collection solutions have been used in various districts – Bhojpur, Khotang, Saptari, Sunsari, Udaypur to name a few and have a proven track record in health, disaster risk reduction, and the gender based violence.
We specialize in delivering projects in challenging environments on short timelines. We provide total data collection solution (design, collection and aggregated data) All services are available remotely and in the field.
We have also partnered with research consultant – Progress Inc. (P) Ltd. to provide total research packages (from initial proposal, through field campaign, to final report).
How it Works
We design, build, deploy and support mobile data collection. We use open-source and enterprise tools to collect data on a mobile device. Open Data Kit (ODK) is a free and open-source set of tools which help organizations author, field, and manage mobile data collection solutions.
ODK provides an out-of-the-box solution for users to:
- Design a data collection form or survey;
- Collect the data on a mobile device and send it to a server; and
- Aggregate the collected data on a server and extract it in useful formats.
See your data right away. Learn – and adapt – more quickly
by skipping the costly, time-consuming, and error-prone
task of entering and cleaning data by hand.
