The use of mobile devices for a house to house interview-administered survey data collection is becoming a practice along with the paper-based data collection tools. Though the electronic data capture mechanism is supposed to improve the efficiency of the data collection mechanism and the quality of the data, there is limited evidence on the cost-effectiveness of the technologies. This project aims to develop an online pre-implementation survey cost estimator to support the planning and decision of implementing agency. Scalable costs with sample size were estimated using parametric cost estimating technique. In this article, we used Introduction, State of the art, Concept, Implementation, Lessons Learned (ISCIL) format to present the overall development process of this online cost estimator.
