Field Surveys

How can Magpi's data and messaging tools help you?

Magpi is the fastest, easiest, and least expensive way to create electronic forms and deploy them to the field, with no need for programmers or technicians. We have decades of experience in supporting field surveys in even the most remote locations.

Skip logic, offline entry, automatic updates, photos, GPS stamping – it’s all there, for iOS and Android devices.  And you can easily create integrated workflows – without programming – that feed your critical data into your SQL database, Salesforce account, Google spreadsheet, or almost any other web-accessible system.  Key values can also trigger alerts, to-do items, or custom report delivery.

Although Magpi can be used for any kind of mobile data collection in the field – from household surveys to drilling rig safety checks – our start in global health means that many Magpi uses are health-related.  As an example, long-time Magpi users at the Unit of HIV and STD epidemiology at Cayetano Heredia University in Lima, Peru, have been using the completely free version of Magpi to assess the association between the Human Papilloma Virus and the Human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV) in indigenous women from the Peruvian Amazon. These researchers want to see if HTLV has a similar behavior as HIV with regards to increasing risk for cervical cancer. Their use of Magpi has been so successful that they have used it for many other purposes, including one in Lima concerning HPV prevalence among men who have sex with men.
