Open Data Kit (ODK) is a free open-source suite of tools for mobile data collection, it is widely used in the developing world and it allows organizations to author, gather, and manage mobile form solutions.

The following comparison tables intends to clarify what are the differences between Teamscope and ODK.

OpenDataKit

Simple implementation

teamscope
Point-and-click interface
Use our web interface to create your study, build your electronic case report forms (eCRFs) and invite your team members. No need for programming knowledge.
OpenDataKit
Technical knowledge required
The major limitation of ODK is the need for programming or coding knowledge for it to be setup. Although the project is well documented, there is a considerable learning curve for a researcher to self-handedly use ODK for data collection.

Data encryption

teamscope
Enforced 
Data stored on our servers and on the mobile application is encrypted using 256-AES. Data in transit is communicated using TLS 1.3.
OpenDataKit
Optional 
Data can be sent through the network unencrypted and stored on a server as plain text. Moreover, ODK does not provide audit trials of changes to the data is collected or the structure of the forms.

Cross-platform

teamscope
iOS, Android and Web
Collect offline data using our iOS, Android or Web app (beta).
OpenDataKit
Android only
ODK Collect is only available on Android.  

Case sharing

teamscope
Seamlessly
Share cases between team members by simply synchronizing your data with the cloud.
OpenDataKit
Requires ODK Aggregate
For cases to be shared among team members they must be exported using ODK Aggregate.

Support

teamscope
Dedicated 
Support team in three languages: English, Spanish and Swahili. Available in 6 different timezones.
OpenDataKit
Community-driven
Support from the community may be slow. Although ODK has a growing community of volunteer contributors and supporters, an organization could find themselves in the situation that immediate response or request for support is not received.
