Our story

The DevResults company began as Caudill Website Design and Construction, Inc. After several years building websites for clients in the international development space, we noticed that we were building the same thing over and over again.

The programs we worked with faced similar challenges: They needed better tools to track their work, measure their impact, collaborate with their colleagues, and report on their progress.

Rather than organizations building their own custom software, we thought there might be a better way to solve this problem:

  • Software that was adaptable and not program-specific
  • A system that was reusable instead of disposable
  • A service that projects could subscribe to year-to-year, instead of making a huge upfront investment
  • A web-based platform that could be easily updated and continuously improved

In 2009 we stood up the first instance of DevResults. In 2011 the first USAID mission started using DevResults. In 2013 we went from three people to six, and diversified our client base beyond US-funded projects. In 2014, we handed off all non-DevResults contracts to focus exclusively on our flagship platform. The company grew to nine.

Today, DevResults is a small-by-design, fully remote and distributed company, with offices in Washington, D.C. and Barcelona, and staff in three time zones.

Our vision

As a company, we want to do good — good to one another, good to our users, good to the world.

Specifically, we want to democratize data so that development, humanitarian, and other social service professionals can monitor their activities, evaluate their impact, learn from their experience, and succeed in their work.

To do this, we provide tools and services that make data collection, management, visualization, analysis, and reporting more accessible to more people.
