More and more organizations are collecting PPI (and other) data via methods other than the traditional visit to a client at their home.  We'd like to know - what have you tried, what challenges have you had, and what is working?  


We tested collection of PPI via several different methods in India in this paper -  And Acumen, a PPI Alliance member, has done a good bit of this in their Lean Data initiative.  Grameen Foundation India worked with Acumen to collect PPI data via a call center for Ziqitza  -  


What other examples are there?
