SERIOUS ENTERPRISE SOLUTIONS FOR NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
Humanitarian Software Foundation (HSF) is a non-profit that is passionate about helping to create better solutions that help benefit humanity. Our primary focus is on research and development to help create better technology and systems for humanitarian aid organizations.
Secondarily, HSF is here to support worthy humanitarian non-profit organizations with grants or facilitation of 3rd party technology support. New initiatives are also in the works to develop solutions on other fronts, name green energy.
Humanitarian Software Foundation (HSF) helped develop our web based supply chain software solutions and website development tools. Our supply chain solutions are tailored for the humanitarian sector: NGO’s, humanitarian aid, and other related non-profits. Our software has developed over a thirty year history of software development and implementation experience.
In 2016 the fourth major evolution of this development emerged with the launch of HELM© (Humanitarian Enterprise Logistics Manager) and Portessa™ Portal Builder. HELM is our core supply chain/warehouse management solution. Portessa is a customer portal building tool that can be used to customize HELM, or to extend functionality to build web portals and other solutions.
Historically, our flexible solutions attracted clients that had unique needs. The humanitarian aid/gift in kind market sector certainly has a unique business model and set of needs. The substantial differences in the models used by these organizations and traditional WMS clients was the driving force to create HELM as a separate product line from it’s predecessor, iBEM.
HELM addresses the unique needs of humanitarian aid organizations. From small foundations working in a local community to large NGO’s providing disaster relief world-wide, they all had a common thread – their business models did not fit well within traditional systems. Many aspects of non-profits are different. Receiving, valuing, and tracking donated goods, for example, is something that few traditional supply chain systems could address, until now.
Other features built into HELM include the abilities to handle complex and regulated product tracking and shipping. Our knowledge and ability to address the unique needs of this very worthy group of clients, combined with experience with pharmaceuticals, medical supplies, disaster operations, international shipping, third world countries, etc. was the foundation that our solutions are based on today.
