Repair data: why community groups collect and share

Many groups in our network are using our software to log community repair data after events. We asked some of them to tell us more about their experience with data. What motivated them to start recording data at repair events? What have they used repair data for?

1,000 events logged in our network

We’re celebrating having reached 1,000 events logged in our repairs database, affectionately known as the Fixometer. We started alone in London in 2014 on this project, and we have 110 groups in 12 countries who have logged events and contributed repair data to our network.

A community dive into our data on computer repairs

For Open Data Day, March 2, we celebrated our first ever open dive into our repair database, AKA the Fixometer. We were focused on gleaning insights from our data on over 2,200 repairs of desktops, laptops and tablets to push for longer-lasting, repairable devices.

10,000 devices recorded on our database

We are celebrating, as we’ve reached over 10,000 devices recorded through our database, affectionately known as the Fixometer. We are collecting this data together with our network, which consists of 60 groups in 12 countries.

Exciting new online developments to grow activity offline

We’re offering way more to volunteers than just our “Fixometer” which is becoming the engine driving a much larger online platform. Read about what we have in the works, for public beta release later in July.
