Data collection is a vital part of any developmental work. In the previous years data collection used to be done on paper and pen which was prone to a lot of errors and difficult to conduct on large scale.

SurveyCTO is one of the most reliable, secure, and scalable mobile data collection platform for researchers and professionals working in offline settings. Many organizations use it to power 1000+ rigorous, complex, and large-scale projects in 150+ countries. With sophisticated workflows, robust quality control features, and real-time visualizations, SurveyCTO collects secure, high quality data – even offline.
