CommCare Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Model 

Budgeting is one of the most important considerations for any mobile project. Building a holistic picture of all the related costs associated with a mobile project takes time. To help organizations estimate the total cost of adopting CommCare (or other mobile technologies) for frontline programs, we have developed an easy-to-use budgeting tool called the Total Cost of Ownership Model

The TCO Model serves as a simple, transparent exercise for organizations interested in understanding the cost of maintaining a mobile solution. The tool provides a model to budget the adoption and deployment of CommCare over five years, and is based on 10+ years of experience helping hundreds of partners determine their budgets.

The TCO Model helps organizations:  

  • Estimate the total cost of adopting CommCare or other mobile technologies
  • Explore permutations and plan budgets accordingly
  • Help groups understand and/or identify the real cost drivers to maintaining a mobile system
  • Assess how these costs can be shared by governments, external donors, NGOs, or others
