The Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is a private Danish humanitarian nonprofit organization, founded in 1956. It serves as an umbrella organization for 33 member organizations.
Danish Refugee Council has deployed ActivityInfo for a number of country offices, including for case management for their work in the Rohingya camps in Bangladesh. Case workers use tablets with a local copy of the database while working in the camps, which synchronize automatically when back in range of WiFi or 3G/4G.
“One of the great things about ActivityInfo for me was that it was easy to maintain. It was very quick to set up and start using. The time from the day you decide to start using it to actually start data collection is very short. Another reason is that you don’t need to have a technical expert, like a developer in-house to actually start creating more databases or do modifications.” — Neda Sepehrnoush, Information Management Manager
