TaroWorks is a mobile data management tool based on Salesforce.com. It began as a project with Grameen Foundation helping Grameen manage agricultural extension workers for social enterprises in rural areas. TaroWorks has since been developing and distributing this field data management tool to benefit other social enterprises and non-profits, who have their own field staff, in other countries and other industries.
“Our vision is to make it as easy to manage across the last mile as it is across the first mile,” Elaine Chang, TaroWorks’ manager of global market development, told E4C.
“This means that in addition to collecting data, we make it possible to push tailored information back out to field agents – making it possible for them to see personal assignments of things like regions or schools or farmers, to view previously collected data about their assignments, and to view performance metrics while offline,” Chang says.
