The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Limited Capacity seats available

DataWinners is an online mobile data collection service designed and built by Human Network International specifically for development professionals. Partners collect accurate and complete data in real-time for better decision making and reporting. DataWinners excels in "last-mile" and humanitarian contexts. Our partners can create simple and complex questionnaires themselves in minutes online, and those out in the field can submit data direct to the system via a simple SMS using equipment they already own, i.e any phone capable of sending an SMS. DataWinners has over 2,800 active users in 152 countries. CRS uses HNI's services in DRC, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Niger, Nigeria and Zimbabwe.
This interactive, hands on training session will complement CRS's presentation on the user experience with DataWinners in polio programming in a complex emergency. We will give a short presentation outlining the main features and advantages of DataWinners and a demo. We will register attendees for free trial accounts and give them hands on experience on DWs to:
- Build a simple questionnaire
- Register data senders
- Submit data via SMS and the smartphone app
- Analyze the data (spreadsheet, chart)
- Export data in one simple click to excel
We will provide guidance and supervision whilst walking participants through the steps of deciding whether DataWinners is appropriate for their needs, and address any questions as they arise.
