Shreddr: Data from Paper to the Cloud (UC Berkeley)


BI Filler Photo-01Development organizations around the world are increasingly reliant on accurate and timely data for decision-making at all levels. Unfortunately, the infrastructure and capacity for data entry and management have not kept pace, especially for low-resource organizations in the field.
