Unlock the power of your data. Transform your decision making. Amplify your impact.
We believe that sustainable change will happen faster if governments and non-governmental organisations become more effective, accountable and collaborative. With a team of data and development experts, an open source data platform and a proven methodology, we will help you power your decisions to achieve inclusive and sustainable impact.
Despite significant progress, huge data and knowledge gaps remain about some of the biggest challenges we face, and many people and groups still go uncounted.
We’re on a mission to change that.
Capture and understand data that matters
Collect, combine, analyse and visualise high-quality digital data from the field and boost the impact of your development work. We’ll work with you at every step of your data journey, from designing your surveys to training your data collectors and monitoring data quality as it comes in.
Improve and showcase your results
Improve your programme based on aggregated and reliable indicator results, and share them with the people who need to see them. We’ll work with you at every step of your data journey, from designing your monitoring framework to creating custom reports or a website to share your results.
