Mobile data collection for international development programs

We help leading development organizations to achieve better visibility of operations with mobile data collection.

International Development

Monitoring & Evaluation in international development
Availability of reliable, accurate and timely data provides program managers with real-time visibility of program progress. Thus, managers get rapid feedback and corrective actions can take place in good time.

Reliable data collection made easy.
The mobile application for data collection is easy to use even for users with limited experience in using mobile tools.

Data is collected and stored offline. Reliable synchronization happens when network access is available. After synchronization, the collected data are visible online, on the web portal and on other field devices.

Errors are minimized with logic flows and validation rules. Every data point records who, when and where the data was collected, including details such as the duration of data collection and, if activated, tracking of routes taken by the data collectors. Data richness is further enhanced with contextual information, photos, voice and video

Enabler for results-based management.
Poimapper enables indicators to be defined to establish baselines and set annual targets for results frameworks. Measure and record inputs, activities, outputs, outcomes and impact.

Importing data from existing data repositories is enabled via our open interfaces to maximise the leverage of existing knowledge.

The key benefit is to provide visibility to the progress of the programs, giving the ability for rapid feedback and corrective actions to take place in time.

Create and manage surveys, adjust and scale-up
With Poimapper, you have total flexibility to define surveys, forms and checklists based on your own needs. Interactive elements like validation, calculations and conditional questions help efficient data collection and improve quality. Changes to surveys are automatically sent to the field without interruption of activities.

Access to data is based on user groups, roles and location, according to your organization’s needs. Poimapper is as suitable for small local non-profits as it is for major multinational NGO’s.
