Hi Mathias,

Nice to meet you. Glad you are a techie. I need all the techie help I can get. I'm looking to implement FLSMS in Kenya soon in the area of mass drug administration. Doing lots of ground work right now. Have you implemented FLSMS yet? Can you route responses directed to forms?.

Great to meet you Mathias.  We're just still getting started on our application in China.  Excited to get started!

Hello Mathias,

I wondered if you had used this application anywhere in the mountains?  Xinjiang perhaps?  If so, what did you do?
