ACDI/VOCA is an international development nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C., United States, that fosters broad-based economic growth, increased living standards, and community development.
ACDI/VOCA embarked on an ambitious project in 2020 to replace a constellation of tools for M&E with ActivityInfo, a single platform for data collection, management and analysis. Following a successful pilot, ACDI/VOCA continues to expand their use of ActivityInfo to projects in 60+ countries, managing the details of hundreds of thousands of beneficiaries.
“When we did our initial assessment of the different data collection and storage platforms available ActivityInfo was one of the few platforms that provided the relational database schema, easy traceability and navigation of raw data for internal and external data quality audits, and allowed for customization of database forms and fields as well as a range of user permissions. It really is unique in this sense. It also assists in mitigating double counting of individuals/organizations that we assist. Then, it was important being able to utilize PowerBI and of course the data collection interface and there is the opportunity to just evolve with the team in developing the platform." — Dr. Jennifer Himmelstein Director of Corporate Analysis
