NGOs and non-profits suffer from inefficient paper-based processes and documentation and a lack of technology systems, which create barriers. These challenges impair the effectiveness of client services and thwart non-profits’ ability to track and measure program efficacy and demonstrate outcomes to donors.
There are very few efficient systems to track interventions related to a beneficiary/household over the tenure of a program. This in turn effects the ability to tailor specific interventions for each beneficiary to ensure the best possible impact/outcome for them.
CSR foundations/donors lack transparent means of understanding the reach and impact of their partner implemented programs and lack the ability to access real-time information about the beneficiaries that are benefiting from their initiatives.
Diona provides a simple, effective and affordable mobile solution for non-profits to manage all aspects of client service delivery and achieve vast improvements in worker productivity, client success tracking, and program outcome/impact measurement and results.
Diona Mobile Visits and Diona Mobility Data Manager provide non-profits with a mobile solution to manage all aspects of client service delivery. Smartphones and tablets are transformed into high impact tools to improve face-to-face client interactions, capture real-time data into a single system, and share information and insights across the organization and with partners.
