- Why use Akvo FLOW?
Why use Akvo FLOW?
Communications technology is improving so fast that it's making most organisations realise how little they know of their own work and its impact. Nowhere is this more true than the field of international development. We cannot manage development investments unless we can monitor and evaluate them from end-to-end.
Akvo FLOW addresses the monitoring gap by offering an integrated way to collect, manage, analyse and display geographically-referenced monitoring and evaluation data.
With the rapid advances in mobile telephony, even $80 phone handsets can capture geographically tagged information including photos and video. And even where internet access or phone network penetration is limited, phones can be used to collect data offline, and upload data at a later time in a convenient location.
What Akvo FLOW delivers
Experience has shown that use of Akvo FLOW significantly reduces errors in data collection. It also increases the speed and convenience of collection, survey management and data sharing and analysis, as well as increasing transparency in the data flow.
Over time, we will add high-end functionality such as scoring, statistical analysis, and customisable public maps.
FLOW use around the world
Akvo FLOW is being used by teams of people in some of the most complex and interesting international development environments around the world.
