We could easily store all our forms in one platform, view the progress of our work, make adjustments in the forms and treat the data in a quick and simple way, which otherwise would take us ages to manage!
Poimapper is very intuitive and easy to use. We worked with it practically without consulting tutorials!
We managed to build a lot of of forms in a simple way, and made adjustments in real time while we tested them on the field, without losing any data. We used the software in desktops, laptops, tablets and mobile phones with full compatibility.
We could follow the progress of our work in data viewer instantly. The map feature allowed us to view with precision the geographical distribution of our surveys all over the country.
Data is easy to export to Pdf, Excel and Word files and we could generate most of the charts and reports we needed.
Technical assistance was prompt and effective.
Some improvements could be made in charts and reports to make them editable in Excel or Word.
The Generate reports feature could also include more options for different statistical analysis (e.g. count, average, distribution) according to each type of question.
In order for Inovus LocalSolar projects to be successful, each individual light poles characteristics need to be captured, recorded, and mapped to determine the structural feasibility. By simply using a mobile phone, PoiMapper allows Inovus Solar to quickly record each poles details, take pictures, and map its GPS coordinates. Once the pole details are gathered, the field technician instantaneously uploads the data to the cloud making mobile phones the most powerful tool in the Inovus Solar toolkit. The program helps eliminate field errors and vastly improved the quality of our data collection process that is critical to our success. Just as important, it has also improved our collaboration between our Engineers and Project Managers giving the team instant access to the data.
On top of all the great features, the support provided by PoiMapper's team is unbeatable. They respond and resolve issues quickly and professionally.
Poimapper is well known as a datacapture tool and I have been using the product for over 3 years as part of an HIV/maternal health programme in 4 countries in Africa. The product generally works well in terms of datacapture on mobiles (smartphones and Tablets). The newer version includes intelligent logic which is useful, although we have had some data issues when conducting large complex surveys. The main benefit is that the data is stored on the phone as well as the server. The webportal, where data is viewed and can be downloaded, is continually improving. Standard reporting and dashboard facilities, however still need significant improvement. The admin control - creating surveys and administering user permissions - I still find quite difficult to use - not very intuitive and requiring a fast internet connection to work well which is often a challenge in sub-Sahara Africa. What is needed in my opinion for first line Managers is a simple reporting tool that they can easily and routinely access as a monitoring tool. Pajat provide responsive customer service and at our request they have integrated a documents section into our application which is very useful - containing all training and project information. We also separately use a mobile instant messenger (MIM) application for low cost communication. I do believe the Poimapper application has the potential, by integrating other features such as documents and MIM, to become a full programme management tool, not simply facilitating monitoring and evaluation but also helping to improve ongoing programme management effectiveness.
Reportage in our company before this software has been quite slow and we havent been able to deliver final raportage to our clients enough fast. It might took several days at least to collect every employees report and make it a one whole report where all the numbers and information is in one place. Reportage was also always on paper and it made everything so much difficult and slow.
This software enables us to give to our clients real time reportage. Reportage is much easier and faster with this software. This software allows us to make all different kinds of charts and diagrams very easily just with few clicks on the computer. Working and operations are transparent.
Our emplyees on the field have now much easier way to report on their work. The software is very user-friendly and it is easy to learn how to use the app.
- works well in remote area's
- map with data collection point shows us if data collectors actually goes to the field (farm)
- Doesn't work well on all smartphones. We have the best experiences with Samsung and Apple
- Not possible to import data
- not possible to view data in real-time in the portal per question
- not possible to export or make reports per question
Thank you for the review. Under Con's you mention: data importing and view data/export per individual questions. All these are possible to do with Poimapper. Please contact us [email protected] to learn how to make these happen.
All the best
Our team at Oceanwide Science Institute uses Poimapper to record a wide range of data during our marine surveys. The functionality of the software allows us to efficiently collect and process data points in the field. The ability to create customized data forms allows us to capture the information specifically relevant to our project. Poimapper offers the option to automatically upload the data points so they are ready for analysis when we return to the office, which is a significant time saver! In addition, the program is user friendly and intuitive. Poimapper has worked really well for us and we would recommend the app to anyone looking for an efficient, customizable data collection tool.
Plan International has been using Poimapper for 5 years now and its currently utilized in over 20 countries around the world. The use cases vary from M&E data collection to Rapid Needs Assessment during disasters, program implementation support to pilots in sponsorship data collection. Plan International staff in numerous countries have been very satisfied with Poimapper and thus we are continuously extending its use in our organisation. Ease of use, reliability, user support and advanced cloud portal make it ideal for our use. Happy to see that also the analysis and reporting side has been updated and improved recently.
Reporting took too much energy from everyone before.... and it took too much time. Now we know all the time what's going on in every location.
