Why CountBig?

Comprehensive, Advanced Platform

Don't waste time and effort reinventing the wheel. CountBig utilizes the market’s statistical benchmarks in an up-to-date, digital and end-to-end solution.

Currently CountBig handles many national data collection missions in many countries, including house and population census of up to 100+ million residents.

Data Quality is the Key

In surveys that include only thousands of participants, keeping data quality might be easy. But when data collection involves tens of millions of participants, a tried and tested solution is required.

CountBig is designed to ensure quality of surveyed data. It supports data validation, online/offline modes, GIS, internal and external validations, survey versioning, field checks, call back checks, quality reports, and more.

Operations Management

Data collection at a national level involves a lot of hassles and challenges, and is usually time constrained. CountBig offers many data collection best practices and tools.

This includes enumerators and their supervisors’ structure plus the capability to monitor enumerators in real-time, enable supervisors review, approve workflows and produce productivity tracking reports. CountBig also utilizes a professional team specialized in supporting wide-range, digital data collection missions.

Dashboards and Reports

Alignment between huge teams involved in the census process is very critical; starting from top management to enumerators. That’s why CountBig is equipped with a large number of dashboards and reports for measuring operations productivity and visualizing data results. All dashboards and reports are segmented based on the hierarchy of responsibility. Also, CountBig exposes data in a simple structure to be utilized when building customized dashboards and reports.
