Once you have completed your OTMM Assessment, you are now ready to level up from your current level. You can use the guide below to move step by step to the next levels of leveraging technology.

These are only recommendations and you can explore all tools available in our handbook and build your next level.

Level 1:

  • Convert your Paper Forms to Digital by scanning them using simple tools like CamScanner and converting them to PDF for safe storage

  • Enter Important data from your paper forms and files into an Excel Sheets as a first step to Digitization

Level 2:

  • Identify metrics of success for your programmes and start building digital forms to collect data for these important metrics.

  • Move away from Paper forms and start using KoboToolBox to create simple Collect Forms for your data and train your Frontline staff on using KoboCollect, ODK Collect​

  • Use built in aggregation of Kobo or ODK to aggregate and do basic analysis on your data

  • Convert these basic analysis into Presentations and charts and share internally for insights and to communicate to the external world. You can try these tools​

  • Write a Policy on Ethical Data Collection and Management for your Organization

Level 3:

  • Add β€œDigitally Verifiable” elements to your kobo/odk forms. Like Photographs, time stamps, GPS location of a campaign so that there is digital proof of a programme being conducted and not just number of attendants.

  • Share analysis from data analysis back with your frontline workers, and to the community using pico projectors in the field and get their feedback on how to improve.

  • Add Google Earth Pro, Engine for spatial data analysis.

Level 4:

  • Use Google Docs to carefully document your Qualitative Data through Interviews, Focussed Group Discussions, etc.

  • Upload your data to Tableau and build powerful visualizations, projections using the data that you have collected and slice and dice them for better actionable insights.

  • If you are using data that is public, we recommend using ona as its free for public data and comes with and has a connector for tableau so you don’t have to manually take the data from your collect form to tableau.
