Akvo FLOW is a tool that collects, manages, analyses and displays geographically referenced monitoring and evaluation data using mobile phones and web-based Dashboards and maps.

Akvo combines open source software and an open data policy with a strong partner network to facilitate coordination, training, learning and data sharing. Akvo FLOW is open source software, but we also run our software as a service (SaaS) for our partner network.

We also build and run a reporting tool, Akvo Really Simple Reporting (RSR), that shares development aid projects online with photo, text and video updates, with over 600 projects and 850 projects partners to date. We collaborate with partners Zimmerman & Zimmerman to build openaid.nl and Akvo OpenAid, which makes IATI data accessible through a web-interface.
