Data capture specialists Manchester

MOL is an organisation that knows the ability to collect information on students and their learning requirements plus quickly process and integrate this with existing systems is hugely important. They approached Gather to develop a fast and secure way of collecting, storing and accessing first contact data for student introductions.

Data collection app development

Having a presence at recruitment fairs and college open days is vital to MOL in order to meet and talk to students making their next educational journey decisions. Using a streamlined digital solution allows face to face time to be maximised, taking away the onerous task of filling out paper forms. Staff are able to concentrate on the much more important task of discussing student’s future potential and needs. The data is collected in an optimised format and sent straight to a secure management platform so there is no need to worry about backups or lost data.

Managing the data

When collecting data of any kind, it’s important to ensure there is a suitable means in place to retrieve it at a later date. When the data is personal or sensitive in any way, additional care must be taken over security and storage. In this case we opted for a very robust and scalable platform ensuring we future proofed it for further development. As with all our data collection solutions, the administrative panel allows data to be managed and retrieved in many different formats.


"We are extremely pleased with the level of service provided by Gather Digital. The application created for MOL had a positive impact on our organisation."
