Concern Universal uses BetterData to manage social accountability programme

Concern Universal uses BetterData to manage social accountability programme

Working with Kwantu enabled Concern-Universal to:

  • Eliminate paper forms and Excel spread sheets. With BetterData, all management and monitoring data are submitted, tracked and measured through the programme management app.

  • Provide real-time reports. BetterData provides both Concern-Universal and its donors with real-time reporting information. The most current status of activities, indicator data and implementation status of each municipality can be viewed at any time.

  • Eliminate multiple disparate systems. Since BetterData focuses on the MuniSAM implementation process, it incorporates all data needed to manage and monitor the programme. BetterData's modular approach makes it easy for Concern-Universal to incorporate changes or even new programmes as their work grows.

  • Create implementation and operational standards for MuniSAM implementation. Municipal level teams can work seamlessly with each other because tools are standardised and configured across all locations

Teba Development and Lima Rural Development automate $9 million a month in cash transfers to 130,000 people

Teba Development and Lima Rural Development automate $9 million a month in cash transfers to 130,000 people

Overview - Teba Development and Lima Rural Development Foundation process payments to over 130,000 people a month.  All of these people are living on the poverty line and depend on this income to meet their basic needs.  They are often based in remote areas and are hard to contact.  Hence, it's critical that their payments are made on time.  However, both partners have found that between 5000 and 10,000 payments fail each month.  The reasons for this range from in-correct account information to suspended bank accounts (in-active bank accounts are suspended quite quickly in South Africa).
