USAID / Tetra Tech - Development and Maintenance of Web Portal for the West Africa Biodiversity and Climate Change (WA BiCC) Program
Bewsys developed a website for the West Africa Biodiversity and Climate Change (WA BiCC) program as a way to facilitate knowledge transfer, information sharing and project collaboration.
Prior to this thinking to develop a website, WA BiCC identified its challenge when it came to communication and marketing amongst its operations of improving conservation, promoting sustainer climate behaviour and reducing carbon footprints across West Africa. Its activities involved constant communication with various stakeholders and this became a challenge.
With funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), WA BiCC decided to charge Bewsys with developing a website to help it obtain its aim of easy knowledge transfer and collaboration to promote environmental conservation and sustainability. Bewsys worked in conjunction with WA BiCC’s marketing team in developing the relevant content for the platform which included a searchable database of downloadable materials, a suitable mobile app and included two languages.
The impact of the web portal was its ability to improve communication between stakeholders and to track the progress of the various programs instituted to facilitate the sustainability, protection of the climate, and promoting clean energy adoption.
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.
Bewsys sure knows what it’s about. I’m particularly thrilled with the use of technology to accomplish tasks and also with the packaging of deliverables.
Great service. I will recommend any day, anytime.
The Bewsys team worked professionally on our assignment and sought to deliver our needs with great patience and creativity. They are reliable and competent, and I recommend them for any assignment. Bewsys sure knows what it’s about. I’m particularly thrilled with the use of technology to accomplish tasks and also with the packaging of deliverables.
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.
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.
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!
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.
