Project Detail

Background

Proforest, a non-profit group that conducts audits aimed at helping critical agricultural stakeholders adopt best management practices to enhance sustainability identified the need for efficiency in their practices. In performing audits, field auditors relied on manual (paper) checklists, documentation, and reporting processes which made the process cumbersome and resulted in inefficient data collection and information loss. 


Solution

Bewsys designed and developed an easy-to-use Proforest Field Audit App to allow field auditors to access and process audit information faster and easier to address this problem. The app was built to feature web-based components for audit preparation and reporting to provide all the relevant information such as guidance and legislation to anyone using the Field Audit App. 


Impact

The app has provided practitioners with a free, easy-to-use mobile platform to collect audit findings, collaborate with their team on field projects, and consult supporting online and offline guidance. The application has also been used for project management functions. The application has improved the operations of the field practitioners and has made the auditing process easier and faster. The application contributes to progress in sustainability through encouraging responsible consumption and production and decent work.

Working with Bewsys has been a tremendous journey. We have not reached our destination, but we are enjoying the ride. Although it was supposed to be a corporate function, at meetings, we built rapport and trust with the consultants, and at the same time, they enhanced efficiency and collaboration.

Very professional in their work and client communication. I was really impressed with their ability to meet all their deliverable schedules and, above all, submit a comprehensive user manual. I will recommend them to other projects.

UNDP Phillipines

Bewsys has been able to deliver what was expected based on the agreed timelines. The inception mission in the Philippines has been successful, and discussions with various stakeholders have been fruitful. Bewsys showed eagerness to know more about the unique requirements of the portal upon hearing it from firsthand users. They were able to accommodate various questions, comments, suggestions, and recommendations from different stakeholders, mainly from the government side, with each agency with unique requirements.

International Organisation for Migration (IOM)

Bewsys staff are results-oriented and adapted a lot of tasks, and were flexible to ensure the solution they provided was the best. A feather in their cap!

Association of African Universities

There is a great need for digital systems development in Africa. I think it will be essential to continue supporting institutions such as Bewsys so they can do these jobs better. Also, we need to think about solutions that can be deployed quickly to support other institutions where there is a match in need.
