- Time was a critical factor in the National Census project. Inefficient days and long implementation processes hurt the company’s bottom line. Challenges such as limited operational insights, and inflexible platforms that do not enable easy edits, needed to be solved immediately. Real-time data and insights were crucial to best manage the massive workforce and tight schedule. Such information enabled swift decision-making.
- Previous softwares required numerous integrations to properly access and visualize data on a large scale.
- Such procedures took a lot of time and effort. So Mertens Hoffman opted for the only tool on the market which offers an all-in-one solution.
- To complete the National Census project, Mertens Hoffman used Pristo. The robust app made fieldworker planning and data entry a breeze. Ensuring accessibility and efficiency for employees, no matter their tech skills.
- The app is also available offline, an invaluable factor when it came to collecting data in remote areas.
- Additionally, the platform's real-time reporting opened the door for managers at all levels to monitor progress by districts, cities, and population types. Making it easier to manage the large workforce and measure progress all while ensuring the project stayed on budget.
Not only was the National Census project a success, but today Mertens Hoffman builds all their projects on Pristo. Today, Mertens Hoffman relies on Pristo for all their projects, totaling over +120 to date.
