Mobile & Web Apps
The mobile and web applications we’ve developed have helped NGO partners on areas such as humanitarian response, peacebuilding, community-based inclusive development, civilian protection, human rights and disaster response. Agile software development allows our process to be more transparent and collaborative while delivering working functions and features incrementally.
ICT IN MONITORING & EVALUATION
Key to our intervention in applying ICTs in Monitoring and Evaluation is readiness assessment that looks into current practice and determines success factors and gaps for a successful implementation of ICT in M&E. We promote open source software when possible or free versions of popular mobile and web apps.
Learning Management System
Our Learning Management System (LMS) offering includes instructional design; setup, configuration and customization of Moodle open source LMS and development of e-learning materials using illustrations, animation and motion graphics. We partner with subject matter experts as needed for content development.
What Victor Sapar and his team at TechRemote accomplished with the VSO Peace and Resilience mobile and web apps surpassed our expectations. From the onset, it was evident that they think strategically building on our ideas and want to provide the most value given our limited resources. Victor's experience in mobile data collection and monitoring and evaluation in the context of development work allowed his team to bring more to the table than a typical software development company.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) - Caraga is thankful for the collaboration we had with TechRemote, particularly Mr. Victor Sapar, in the development of the Do No Harm Quick Check mobile app. The app allows looking into the conflict-sensitivity of a project or activity based on established Do No Harm principles and practices and gives immediate feedback on urgent areas that need to be addressed. Mr. Sapar’s experience in ICTs and development issues like peacebuilding allowed his team to execute well this project which was supported by GIZ Philippines.

Victor is considered already as a member of the BDA family because of his great contribution to the agency's institutionalization goal through the digital platform. BDA is always counting on Victor as it continues its journey in the Bangsamoro.

Victor Sapar facilitated the use of ICT tools to help improve the assessment activities of the Swiss Foundation for Mine Action (FSD) - Philippines. Working closely with our team, he conducted readiness assessment, review of attendant processes as well as staff training. He introduced free and open-source applications for data collection, cleaning, processing and visualisation.

Victor was instrumental in reactivating our website - making it more relevant and user friendly. More than applying a new design, he provided guidance on content development, attendant policies and processes as well as leveraging the website to help achieve our organizational goals. Probably considering that we are "non-techies" and also owing to his experience with non-profits, he facilitated the development of our website in a participatory manner thus effectively building our capacities along the way.
Raizsa Mae Anayatin, Executive Director, Mindanao Coalition of Development NGO Networks (MINCODE)
We have had a long and productive engagement with Victor in his capacity as ICT consultant. He not only helps us with web design and staff training, but also provides overall guidance in the effective communication of our work.
