Magpi Launches New Mobile Data Collection and Messaging Application Suite, Expanding Footprint from Global Development to Commercial Markets

WASHINGTON, D.C. (PRWEB) August 25, 2014

Magpi, a leading provider of configurable, cloud-based mobile data collection and communication applications, today announced the release of Magpi 2.0, making it easier and more affordable to create form-based mobile apps and outgoing SMS and voice messages. Magpi (formerly DataDyne) was founded in 2003 by two experts in global health and technology from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and American Red Cross. It’s the longest running data collection technology in international development and widely used in the global health and international development sectors.

With more than 31,000 field workers in 170 countries using Magpi – from organizations including the World Bank, the CDC, the American Red Cross, and the World Health Organization – the company now turns its focus to enabling the commercial markets to experience the full benefits of mobility: real-time data collection and syncing, dramatic time and cost savings, and improved data quality, all while reducing the environmental impact of paper.

Magpi empowers businesses in need of surveys, inspections, compliance audits, research, supply chain management, geo-data information collection and other forms to simply create a mobile form, then deploy it in minutes to any device. It also makes broadcast messaging possible for any organization, enabling users to create mass SMS or voice messaging campaigns in any language from an easy-to-use web interface, without having to work through local carriers.

The launch of Magpi version 2.0 enables improved mobile data collection and messaging with these new features:

  •     New data-entry flexibility – enter data one question at a time or all at once in a list
  •     Auto-update – form changes are automatically updated on connected field devices
  •     Auto-share – new forms automatically synced to connected field devices
  •     Subforms – easily repeat question groups on a form
  •     Improved network performance – optimized send/receive protocols for better performance over slow networks
  •     Dynamic messaging – broadcast messages can be timed to recipients' ages, appointments, and other special dates
  •     Import message lists – bulk import messages for broadcasting
  •     Track data modifications – improved logging of form and data edits

“John Snow, Inc. has used Magpi for five years, leveraging the tool for important projects such as assessing stocks of anti-malarial medications in Ghana, Liberia, Tanzania and Zambia as part of the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) and improving food security of women and children in Liberia,” said Mike Frost, director, JSI Center for mHealth. “By using Magpi to register new beneficiaries under the Liberian Agricultural Upgrading, Nutrition and Child Health (LAUNCH) project, we were able to cut the wait time between registration and the receipt of the first set of supplemental rations by two thirds. It's a simple but powerful approach to gathering and reporting important health information in challenging environments.”

Magpi forms are compatible with iOS, Android and Symbian devices, and offer real-time and offline data capture regardless of location. In addition, Magpi enables data collection via SMS or web entry, text-to-speech capabilities in 17 different languages, and instant data analysis and publishing. Organizations still using paper forms for collecting field data can use Magpi to easily increase data flow and quality while reducing their environmental footprint.

“We’re excited to reintroduce ourselves as Magpi and unveil the next generation of our award-winning product with new features,” said Dr. Joel Selanikio, co-founder and CEO of Magpi. “Field workers across the globe use Magpi to collect and communicate information, saving time, money, and lives, and we are committed to positively impacting the world through technology.”
