Learn From & Manage Across Your Portfolio

Named 1 of the Top 6 “Startups You Should Know About” by Devex, First Mile Geo has been used across the international development spectrum from USAID to the World Bank, Global Program on Forced Displacement, Mercy Corps, Interpeace, and Global Communities just to name a few. Join them to enable your enterprise to get smarter through data driven analytics too.

Stop using chewing gum and fishing wire ICT4D solutions that make you look smart. Leverage business intelligence so your organization actually will be.

Collect

Use the technologies that make sense to where you’re working. If paper makes more sense than iPhones… then use paper. You choose, we streamline.


Analyze

Why are you waiting days for the GIS team to get you a map of your projects? Why hire a ICT consultant to use chewing gum and fishing wire to tie ODK Collect together with some dodgy visualization tool?

First Mile Geo links data that you collect to easy-to-use maps for spatial analysis and interactive dashboards across datasets. You can even place weights on your variables and develop indices that help show where you’re having the impact you intend.


Monitor

Decision makers don’t have time to play with cool tech tools. They want insights and fast. First Mile Geo lets you receive automated Executive Briefs emailed to each member of your team in a format, language, and time they specify. And that’s just for regular reporting. You can even setup notifications so if something goes off the rails, you know it as soon as it happens.


Collaborate

First Mile isn’t just about a project. Once data is coming in across projects, regional and thematic teams will have a rich and rapidly growing evidence base against which success can be benchmarked. Everyone from project managers to leadership can access and leverage these insights --creating corporate knowledge and off the shelf capabilities organically.

Specific Use Cases within the Industry

By leveraging the First Mile Geo tool you can streamline reporting to donors and start building genuine institutional knowledge across the enterprise.

  • Capacity Building

    Enabling local institutions to make smarter data driven decisions begins with bending technology to the realities of the human capital and technical capabilities available to them. First Mile Geo simplifies this process by removing the need for deep specialist expertise to manage the full cycle from data collection to mapping and visualization.
