Our Software as a Service (SaaS) gives you on-demand access to our expertise to develop, deploy and view valuable, actionable data.

Our cloud-based data collection and traceability tools work either online or offline, making them ideal for use in even the most remote locations. The GeoSurvey™ mobile tool allows users to fill out a questionnaire from an inventory of preconfigured questions and to gather field information such as socio-economic data, field characteristics, work practices, project activities and behavior. The GeoTrace™ tool, available in both mobile and desktop versions, traces the raw materials and products along their journey through the supply chain.
