Nafundi designs, builds, deploys, and supports mobile data collection software.
We started Open Data Kit, the best way to collect data on a mobile device.
We've used Open Data Kit for years and we love it. Our latest project needed new features that were not in ODK Collect and so we came to Nafundi for help. We knew it would be a lot of work in a short amount of time but they delivered big time. If you need changes to ODK done well and on time, I can't recommend Nafundi enough.

I've been working with Nafundi's founders since 2009. From the Amazon rain forest to the heart of Africa, they have a rare ability to discern the essence of a problem and deliver solutions that are easy-to-use, work at scale, and make a difference.
Being able to quickly collect and process data is vital to public health programs. We've been working with Nafundi for years, and they are great at solving the pain points (on mobile and desktop) we come across. They work quickly, solve problems the first time, and give us the confidence we need to scale. We could not do our work without Nafundi.
