Mobile data capture

Simple implementation

Point-and-click interface

Use our web interface to create your study, build your electronic case report forms (eCRFs) and invite your team members. No need for programming knowledge.

Enforced

Data stored on our servers and the mobile application is encrypted using 256-AES. Data in transit is communicated using TLS 1.3. Our servers are located in a secure ISO 27001 facility in Frankfurt, Germany.

iOS and Android

Capture data on-the-go and offline with Teamscope's iOS and Android app.

Technical knowledge required

The primary limitation of ODK is the need for programming or coding experience for it to be set up. Although the project is well documented, there is a considerable learning curve for a researcher to self-handedly use ODK for data collection.

Open Data Kit

Optional

Data may be sent through the network unencrypted and stored on a server as plain text.

Android only

ODK Collect is only available on Android.

Case sharing

Seamlessly

Share cases between team members by simply synchronizing your data with the cloud.

Requires ODK Aggregate

For cases to be shared among team members they must be exported using ODK Aggregate.

Support

Dedicated team

Support team in two languages: English and Spanish. Available in 6 different timezones.

Community-driven

Although ODK has a growing community of volunteer contributors and supporters, an organization could find themselves in the situation that an immediate response or request for support is not received.
