How Intouch helped Sightsavers be rated in the top 7 charities worldwide

“Intouch Business have been a vital partner in enabling process transformation across the Sightsavers organisation over the last 8 years by using their information management knowledge and agile software systems”

January 2017 saw Sightsavers’ work in the area of Neglected Tropical Diseases recognised by the highly prestigious GiveWell organisation, rating Sightsavers amongst only 7 charities in the world that meet their exacting requirements in demonstrating effectiveness in improving lives whilst underpinned by great financial and project systems. This award put Sightsavers in a strong position in tough economic times to to attract new major donor funding to finance our important health systems and social inclusion work across the Global South.

The first project we did with Intouch was our Balanced Scorecard system (or what we call our SIM Card) back in 2009. We had large quotes from product suppliers in the high six figures to develop a system to meet our particular needs. Intouch were able to quickly and very cost-effectively develop our SIM Card using their Servizio software framework. Our SIM Card system enabled us to demonstrate transparency in our strategic performance and to share the impact of our programme work with our stakeholders.

Intouch went on to develop a suite of integrated financial and project management systems that have supported our growth in the management of significant multi million projects with major international donors over the last 5 years. Intouch have continually shown a strong understanding of our people and business, bringing their flare for technology with pragmatic solutions using their Servizio software. Their systems have enabled us to expand our management of projects extremely efficiently and cost effectively, and demonstrate value for money in our project delivery.

“Intouch became our preferred Software Development partners back in 2013. I am delighted to say that our working partnership continues to develop, helping Sightsavers effectively reach out and support our work with beneficiaries around the globe.”
