Understanding your needs

Digital tools help amplify people’s capabilities to access information, share knowledge and connect, thereby contributing to positive social change. These benefits unfold when digital tools are co-designed with the people whose needs and expectations they are meant to serve. We believe that you shouldn’t have to adapt to a data management system, but that the system should reflect how data flows in your organisation or project.

We recommend to explore your digital needs, wishes and opportunities before selecting and introducing new tools. Approach us, if you are interested in an analysis of your data management needs and processes.

We regard ourselves as an independent consultancy – should we believe Mainlevel CONNECT is not the best solution for your project or organisation, we will gladly recommend other options or tools on the market.


Mainlevel CONNECT enables you to collect, analyse and report data for effective evidence-based project steering, learning and reporting. The software combines advanced features of different system types in one platform:

  • Indicator Tracking System
  • Data Visualisation Tool
  • Mobile Data Collection Tool
  • Management Information System
  • Geographic Information System

This reduces complexity and sources of error as data does not need to be exchanged between several tools. It also leads to a harmonised user experience as users do not need to switch between different tools for different purposes.

After contract signature, Mainlevel CONNECT will be accessible within a few days only. The setup and configuration can be done by you based on a detailed step-by step documentation (Knowledge Base) or even be fully supported by a Mainlevel Implementation Manager.

The following steps need to be completed to setup and configure Mainlevel CONNECT:

  • Selection of URL (e.g.
  • Optional customisation of look & feel (e.g. login page, colours, logos)
  • Configuration of navigation structure
  • Configuration of data collection templates (structural and operational data)
  • Optional import of existing data and configuration of connectors (e.g. Kobo)
  • Configuration of dashboards and charts
  • Configuration of results and indicators (e.g. definitions and calculations)
  • Configuration of permission scheme

Mainlevel CONNECT includes a role-based permission scheme. This means that users get access to different sections of the system based on their roles. For each role, certain permissions can be granted per section to view, edit and/or create data entries. The user accounts and permissions can be managed via a user interface in the system.

Permissions can even be connected to dynamic elements, e.g. countries, provinces, schools, action areas or projects.

For each Mainlevel CONNECT instance, seperate workspaces can be configured. This allows for the collection and analysis of data across different portfolios and projects in one software instance.

Although the data is stored and managed in different workspaces, Mainlevel CONNECT allows for synchronising data between workspaces. This setup is helpful, if data is stored and managed e.g. on country level, but needs to be aggregated on global level.

Mainlevel is a “Cloud Services Made in Germany” certified company. Mainlevel CONNECT is hosted on servers in Germany being fully compliant with German and EU guidelines. If you are not interested in a Software-as-a-Service agreement incl. monthly updates, we are flexible to host the software on any other cloud-based server environment.

Yes, the software can be configured in all languages, including Right-to-Left languages. This applies to both dimensions, the system language, i.e. how buttons and functions are displayed, but also to contents, i.e. how data entry forms and navigation items are displayed.

Mainlevel CONNECT is currently available in German, English, French, Spanish and Arabic. Further languages can be added and managed via a user interface in the system.
