Before the implementation of collaborative work tools, all ALIMA teams wasted a lot of time sending documents between offices in the different countries of intervention, encountered downloading difficulties due to slow connection, it was impossible to work simultaneously on documents.
The Odoo ERP tool has been implemented with the aim of better managing the growth of ALIMA’s activities and improving the work of all departments.
The Collection & Development team had no tool for monitoring their activities. IT4LIFE customized the Odoo CRM module to adapt it to the needs of NGOs and created a donor CRM and a “Donors’ area” application. These tools allow real-time monitoring of different donations (street marketing, digital channels), data recovery from processing providers and downloading of documents such as tax receipts for donors.
DHIS2 software is used in many ALIMA field activities.
DHIS2 software is used for the collection and analysis of medical data (data on nutrition, public health, reproductive health …). After a pilot project in Nigeria, ALIMA plans to extend its use to all countries of intervention. Previously, teams used Excel, there were lots of calculations, high risk of error, and data had to be collected once a week. Thanks to DHIS2, data is now collected with standardized forms, key indicators are directly visualized, a dashboard makes it possible to follow developments, collection and use are easy.
