During our last LDSTech Conference, a small project team led by Hilton Campbell, Steve Mann, Simon Kerrou, and Jeff Macmichael used advances in smartphone technology to develop a Clean Water Evaluation app. The app will increase the efficiency and timeliness of project reports for the Church’s Clean Water Initiative.
The team started developing the app during the conference and finished it within six weeks after the conference. After the app is integrated into a Church database, it will be released officially.
The Church’s Clean Water Initiative is involved in over 50 projects annually that bless more than a million people. The projects are designed to provide sustainable access to clean drinking water in communities where clean drinking water is largely unavailable.
Currently senior missionaries visit a sampling of water projects and fill out a paper evaluation form. The form often gets torn, crinkled, soiled, or lost. The evaluation forms that actually make their way home have to be entered into a spreadsheet, thus increasing the inefficiency of the process with a double-entry.
