Mobile data collection made easy
formhub is built on a belief that data collection and analysis
should be fast, flexible and reliable. And open source, of course.

Data Collection Simplified
Safe, secure and private.
All data transmission to and from formhub is secure with industry-standard encryption. Data is stored redundantly and all systems are backed up nightly. Additionally, data is only accessible to your password-protected account (with the default privacy settings).
Offline & on the go.
Once you've uploaded your Excel-authored form, you can access it from any Android device using ODK Collect. Or generate a short URL and access the survey from a device with a web browser. Once cached, you can access the form and submit data while offline.
Built for sharing.
Since open data is a powerful force for development, we made sharing both data and surveys (ie, your XLSform) easy. You can share on the web or with other formhub users.
Open source and extensible.
The code that powers formhub is available as a free and open-source basis. We believe that being open is critical to achieving our goal, to build the best data gathering platform, period. Additionally, powerful APIs make integration with external services simple.
