Which program/database you currently recommend for creating Annual Reports?

I'm working as an Evaluation Advisor to IFDC to help them identify a program/database for collecting M&E data company-wide. Would anyone be willing to share which program/database you currently recommend for creating Annual Reports? For example mFarms, or, or other? Thank you!

Beside Excel, open source systems like DHIS, and expensive corporate legacy systems, Tableau is an option. This allows you to create dashboards  per your choice. The program is easy to navigate and learn. Public version is freely available. You can practice but you cannot save. Trial version is good for two weeks.

Hi Kay,

Great question! At the inception of the Evidence Project, we decided to invest in building our own online reporting tool. We contracted with a web development group and together designed a system that would allow our activity managers to report results at any time throughout the project and reference saved results. The system has streamlined reporting efforts overall, but our staff still require some support and encouragement in using the system.

Let me know if you'd like to learn more about our system.
