two examples

The goal of both projects is to take something that is possible but expensive and difficult to use . . . and make it inexpensive and easy to use

Two Examples
  • EpiSurveyor -- lets anyone create data collection forms online and instantly distribute them to mobile phones worldwide
  • MIP (Mobile Info Project) -- lets anyone take their text content and create an SMS “channel” that anyone can subscribe to receive
example 1 episurveyor11

Kenya MOH officers design forms online, deploy them wirelessly to phones, collect data and upload it over the network in real time.

Example 1: EpiSurveyor
example 1 episurveyor12

Rather than wait 6-12 months for data entry to occur before analysis, they have real-time data collection, immediate analysis, and same-day action based on their data.

Example 1: EpiSurveyor

Example 1: EpiSurveyor
example 2 mip20

In Chile, the Ministry of Agriculture needs to communicate with rural farmers about prices, techniques, programs, etc.

The Ministry has its content (messages).

The farmers have phones.

Example 2: MIP

Until MIP there was no easy way for the Ministry to get the content to the phones

our approach
Our Approach

1. Identify something that’s possible but expensive & difficult to use

2. Use the web and the mobile phone to make it inexpensive & easy to use

2. Eliminate the need for ICT consultants

If you don’t need consultants to use Gmail, why should you need them for this??
