Powerful and flexible

Cosmos is a digital data collection platform that uses the power, flexibility and scalability of cloud technology to collect and visualise data from anywhere in the world.

It can gather accurate and consistent data and survey results from some of the most inaccessible parts of the world. Anyone with the app on their smartphone or tablet can input data and photos that are then fed into real-time dashboards for processing, analysis and adaptive programming.

Cosmos works in areas of little or no Internet connectivity – storing information for uploading when connectivity is restored – and its GPS capability pinpoints each data entry location accurately.

Our consultants were full of praise for the Cosmos app. They said it was most user friendly mobile survey software they have seen yet
Toni AkinluyiNigeria
A big benefit of the Cosmos system is data security. Data collected about development is often sensitive, whether it concerns people's identities, behaviours, activities or locations, so it is crucial it does not fall into the wrong hands, not least because it’s often data about some of the globe’s most vulnerable people
Mike BrewinZimbabwe
The system has strong quality assurance benefits including assuring our clients that the approved works at the targeted schools have been completed
