Yes. We’ve built DevResults from the ground up to be highly configurable. You can choose to include various DevResults tools with one click and all program information can be modified as needed with a user-friendly interface. All aspects of DevResults are designed to be used by organizations large and small in any sector. Areas configurable by users include:
Yes. You can define precisely what each group of users can do and what they can see. For any given type of information, you can indicate who has full access, view-only access, or no access. You can read more on how we support permissions in our knowledge base.
No. DevResults is web-based, so it can be used from any computer without installing anything. No special software or hardware is required.
DevResults is optimized for Google Chrome, which is the fastest browser available today. We’ve built much of DevResults on Google’s framework, Angular, so using Chrome will definitely make for the best possible experience. With that said, you can also use Firefox, IE 9+, and/or Safari.
As with any web-based application, you need to connect to the internet to use DevResults. Since most of our users are in hard-to-reach places with slow connections, we’ve gone out of our way to make DevResults fast and lightweight. If you can use web apps like Facebook or Gmail from where you are, you can use DevResults.
You can hide the image-rich mapping features when you’re not using them, which makes it even faster.
All of your changes are continuously auto-saved, so you don’t have to worry about getting cut off and losing a lot of work.
DevResults can also integrate with offline mobile collection tools. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your integration needs.
When a change is made in DevResults, you’ll see an “undo” button appear immediately. DevResults also keeps track of changes made and allows you to review the change history. In most cases, we can revert accidental changes or deletions.
Yes. The user interface is currently available in Arabic, Burmese, Chinese, Dutch, French, Nepalese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Ukrainian. We'll be happy to add other languages upon request.
When using DevResults in another language, all dates and numbers are also shown in the appropriate format for that culture.
Yes. Many kinds of integrations are enabled by DevResults’ API. Find out more from our knowledge base here. You can also easily get data in and out of DevResults using Excel-based import and export tools. We’d be happy to discuss any other integration needs.
Yes. We've been involved in the IATI effort for years and are proud to say DevResults users can now easily export their data in the IATI format. You can read more on the announcement on our blog here.
Yes. We're happy to work with your developers or refer you to one of our partners that specializes in custom development. Contact email@example.com for details.

For 15 years, we have been hosting websites and web applications containing sensitive data for various U.S. Government agencies, the World Bank Group, and the United Nations system. We implement industry best practices to ensure the confidentiality and security of our clients’ data, and our servers have never been compromised.

DevResults is offered as on-demand software as a service (Saas). This approach has several distinct advantages:
We host our clients’ websites on Microsoft’s Azure Infrastructure as a Service Cloud (IaaS). We take care of all administration and maintenance, backups, operating system upgrades, and server deployments. The result: responsive websites and software that is available when your audience visits it, with no administrative hassles for your staff.
Hosting DevResults on the cloud has several distinct advantages:
Probably not. Over the years we’ve found that it makes more sense to house systems like this in the US, even if they’re being primarily used in a single country overseas. Besides obvious speed, security and reliability issues with local hosting providers, different internet service providers in a single country don’t necessarily have local interconnections; so it’s often faster to access a server in a world-class facility in US or Europe than on a server hosted locally.
Excellent! Please let us know. Drop us a line at email@example.com. We’re constantly working to make DevResults even more useful.
