Use Viamo to:

Measure outputs, outcomes and impact.

Make informed decisions based on real-time data about the population’s knowledge, behaviors and attitudes. Involve the people you serve in the design, management, and evaluation of programs and policies. Collect information at a speed, frequency and cost previously impossible with in-person methods.

Population research

Collect key information from a sample of the national population in fewer than four weeks, for a fraction of traditional in-person approaches. Perform market research, feasibility analyses, impact assessments, pre and post campaign studies, and more.

Example partners: Facebook, World Bank, and Stanford University

Field data collection

Get rid of paper-based data collection. Equip your field staff with state-of-the art digital forms for ongoing data collection with a mobile app, SMS and IVR. Track field activities, monitor disaster response, report on stock levels, measure attendance, follow-up on referrals, etc.

Example partners: Aga Khan Development Network, Catholic Relief Services (CRS), Chemonics, Marie Stopes International, National Disasters Management Institute Mozambique, UNICEF, Yes Brands foods & Beverages

Monitoring and Evaluation

Run baseline, midline and endline surveys on a weekly or monthly basis to track performance indicators in quasi real-time. Evaluate the performance of in-person activities (such as household visits and beneficiary trainings) at different intervals after the activity to measure outputs, outcomes and impact.

Example partners: FHI360, John Hopkins University, DAI.
