It provides the key components of the Kenga platform that includes a mobile application and web-based server and a web client as illustrated in figure 1 below. The mobile application runs the Kenga-Mobi app that is downloadable from Google Play-store. The app in offline mode. The Kenga-Mobi app is configured to contain all the forms that enable data collectors to complete them, whenever they go out to gather data and it is stored on the phone until synchronisation is done when network connection is available.

The Web Server contains a data synchroniser Module, Kenga Server and Database. The Synchroniser Module handles all transaction between the mobile application and server, including updating forms and receiving the data. The database contains all data collected stored in a relational manner using Mysql database management system.

The client application uses a web browser to access the server on a laptop or desktop computer. The system loads a dashboard that displays all the data, question summaries, key performance indicators reports and system configurations.

Kenga is especially built to improve the effectiveness, timeliness and accuracy of data collection from resource constrained rural areas and present the results to all stakeholders for further action. The platform provides tools for all stakeholders to manage the data collection process, right from the field staff who can enter the data directly at sources to their supervisors who can review/edit the data as per appropriately assigned roles and permissions. Program staff can view performance data to enable them follow-up on reporting so as to ensure that all data is collected.

The data is captured from anywhere (with or without internet connection), and device (mobile phone of PC) using customized online, offline and mobile data entry tools. Using Kenga, you can get real-time overviews of project performance, or drill down for advanced evaluations using analytical charts, dashboards, and GIS mapping. You can automatically generate progress reports, and disseminate information to stakeholders via purpose-built user accounts online.

Kenga is a cloud-based software platform which streamlines results-based management and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of non-governmental organisations programs or projects. Kenga can help you to easily capture, track, manage and report on development interventions using sound performance indicator data, and deliver more impact to those in need.

Kenga is an enterprise level platform that provides a set of tools that use open-source components for data collection and custom made applications, all of which OMNI-Tech has been a contributing partner. If you want to lower your costs for data collection, improve on the time it takes to get the data in and analysis done, reduce on errors and manage your team better, then this is the solution for you.
