Our team also has extensive research and survey design experience—including survey planning, implementing, publishing, and analyzing data in over 20 countries. In fact, it was our research work that led us to develop KoboToolbox. We have affiliations with Harvard University and other universities, and we have worked with many international organizations to collect survey data as part of program evaluations, assessments of population needs, and studies of the impact of conflict on vulnerable populations.

Feature development and other enhancements

Since its beginning, Kobo has worked through partnerships, joint initiatives, and service agreements to develop new features for KoboToolbox. Through development with partner organizations, new features are added every year to respond to data needs in the field.

KoboToolbox features are designed to be intuitive to use and produce high quality data in challenging settings. Feature development includes creating new tools, making modifications, and adding enhancements to fit with organizations’ internal requirements.
