In this paper, a day-labour Mobile Electronic Data Capture and Browsing (MEDCB) system is presented. In building and evaluating this system, the primary aim was to evaluate the possibility of applying mobile data capture and browsing to the day-labour market with a view to improving data capture and verification accuracy and efficiency. The MEDCB system consists of a mobile client application and a web interface. The system was evaluated with non-profit organizations working for day labour semiliterate job seekers. Results showed that data capture, processing and browsing is a possibility in day labour market. Improvement in accuracy and efficiency was also seen with the use of MEDCB. We describe the design process, present initial findings and discuss the results.
