How we work

1.

Data built by listening.

Who knows your impact best? The people who experience it. That’s why we listen to them directly, building measurement tools around what they say matters most to their lives.

2.

Speedy and standardized.

Most impact measurement is either too complex to be scalable or too simple to be useful. Ours is a Goldilocks approach: 15-minute, standardized surveys built for repetition and comparability.

3.

By phone, by real people, anywhere.

Nothing gets to the root of impact better than a direct conversation. Our Research Assistants speak, by phone, in local language, to the people you impact.
