Client

Developed as part of InSTEDD's platform tools, Pollit allows the user to easily define a questionnaire composed of free text, numeric or multiple choice questions, by importing an online Google Form. By supplying a list of mobile phones to be surveyed, and using the Nuntium Local Gateway, the user can set up his or her mobile phone as a gateway for sending questions and receiving the answers from the chosen respondents.

Approach

Its aim as a project is to support a variety of scenarios in which collecting structured information from the field in the form of a survey is needed: collecting virtual signatures, identifying community needs, evaluating the status of ongoing projects, making quick tests after courses or conducting damage assessment surveys in the event of a disaster.
