How Mobile Tech Supports Humanitarian Aid

Here are a few examples of how our offline mobile field service app, integrated with the Salesforce CRM, is being used to support humanitarian aid.

Building an Enabling Financial Ecosystem for Refugees in Uganda  

Grameen FoundationGSMA and MTN are implementing a project to identify, train and enable mobile money agents in two of the largest refugee settlements in Uganda – hosting over 339,000 refugees collectively. These refugees and surrounding communities face challenges in accessing training, savings and credit services to help them start sustainable businesses.

TaroWorks and Salesforce will be used to help manage program recruitment, registration, qualification, enrollment and training. The technology will also be deployed to collect and analyze demographic data on project participants, conduct research surveys and gauge project progress. (Learn More)

Current Data Key to Effective Humanitarian Aid

The sheer volume of refugees worldwide and the challenge of quickly getting them aid in remote areas, has prompted humanitarian organizations to digitize field operations so they can collect and analyze data, manage caseloads, deliver direct cash payments to disaster zones and conduct other business operations more effectively.

Here are a few examples of how TaroWorks’ mobile field service app and the Salesforce CRM have helped organizations respond to humanitarian challenges in near real-time, even in far-flung locations with unreliable or no connectivity.
