“Our consultants were full of praise for the Cosmos app. They said it was most user friendly mobile survey software they have seen yet”

Toni Akinluyi, Senior M&E Advisor


"A big benefit of the Cosmos system is data security. Data collected about development is often sensitive, whether it concerns people's identities, behaviours, activities or locations, so it is crucial it does not fall into the wrong hands, not least because it’s often data about some of the globe’s most vulnerable people"

Andrew Whillas


"The system has strong quality assurance benefits including assuring our clients that the approved works at the targeted schools have been completed"

Andrew Whillas


“COSMOS does away with the need for paper-based surveys, reduced the risk of data being lost and cuts out the errors that can occur when the data is manually typed in from paper forms.”

Mike Brewin, Team Leader

“The best thing about COSMOS is that it enables us to remotely monitor our survey implementation in real time. By simply logging into the online COSMOS dashboard, we are able to view all completed and in-progress interviews by device, including their exact GPS locations and durations. This allows us to quickly and effectively respond to individual issues as they arise.”
