Status update: collecting data using tablets instead of paper

Build Change has relied primarily on paper-based inspection checklists and manual filing of photographs for collecting data on homeowners, trainees, and compliance rates of houses. This system can work on small projects, but it has limitations, including time lag between data collection, interpretation, and decision-making, and opportunities for errors and corruption.  We have started an ambitious switch to digital, in partnership with the Grameen Foundation and using Taroworks and Salesforce.
