Critical local information, globally.

Leverage the eyes and ears of local people in low information environments.

Emani lets you create robust local surveys anywhere in the world. Customers use the insights to assess risk, monitor needs, or explain incidents.

Responses come from real people. We build communities in some of the world’s most difficult places to operate, who are motivated to share crucial insights from the ground.

Our online platform also lets you onboard your own  employees, contractors, and beneficiaries – turning them into important sources of information for local monitoring.

Why does international business use Emani?

  • Public opinion polls in remote corners of the world, such as Adamawa, Yobe and Borno in Nigeria.
  • Security risk assessment by neighbourhood of key African and Asian cities.
  • Robust assessments of social risk as part of broader ESG monitoring packages.
  • Regularly and automatically source updates from employees and contractors at operations sites in multiple African countries.
  • Monitoring of beneficiaries’ knowledge, attitudes and practices in settlements for displaced communities.

The right information, right away.

Emani exists in three parts - DataSource, DataStream, and DataPlatform - so you pay only for what you need.



Emani DataSource gives you access to our communities around the world. You choose your questions, we get you answers.

We build communities of verified respondents who trust us. Even if your inquiry is a one off, you'll benefit from Emani's lasting relationship with community members.



Whatever the data source, it needs to be in shape and ready to go when you receive it.

Emani DataStream sends data from the field to our database. It then translates foreign-language responses, removes erroneous entries and transforms it into the format required.



DataPlatform visualises insights. For each indicator, the platform automates live, interactive visuals in multiple formats. Check how responses break down by age, gender, status and more, and see how trends are evolving over time.

Easily access underlying data too, so you can recreate your own graphics.

Human insight is integral to understanding

Many of us have come to expect monitoring mechanisms, public polling, and human intelligence gathering in complex environments to take weeks or months and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

Analysts still spend hundreds of hours each month using traditional, analogue methods: making phone calls, sending emails, and travelling to remote regions. 

An while new tools, like DataMinr have transformed how quickly we are notified about key events, we still struggle to understand why things happen and what drives local people to do what they do.

 The thoughts, feelings and observations of people on the ground, local people who understand the context better than international consultants and foreign correspondents.

Who are these local experts? You know them already: in-country colleagues, suppliers, contractors and partners, community leaders, journalists, and more.

Communicating efficiently across the globe, whether with people in your own networks or ours, is essential to getting the right information at the right time.
