"IMPLEMENTING A NEW SYSTEM IS ONLY HALF THE STORY, THE SYSTEM MUST BE RIGHT FOR THE ORGANISATION AND ACCEPTED BY THE USERS IN ORDER TO GAIN THE INTENDED BENEFITS. A SYSTEM THAT ISN'T USED IS POINTLESS."
Over the years Precio Fishbone has worked with several NGOs developing Project and Programme Management IT systems to help NGOs improve international humanitarian and development work. Precio Fishbone's NGO journey started with the Save the Children Sweden in 2003 when we built their intranet and collaboration solution. We worked with them closely for many years and learned their operations, processes and challenges.
After a few years we were assigned to develop their Programme and Project Management system along with their Grants Management system. The solution was very well received and parts of the system were later implemented at Save the Children International and Save the Children Australia. The rumor spread and we were fortunate to initiate cooperation with the British Red Cross where we got the opportunity to develop their new Programme and Information Management System. We brought in our experience, operational and technical knowledge and selected modules from previous projects and implemented a new system supporting BRC´s international humanitarian and development work.
Based on these projects we packaged a "core" of key functions geared specifically for NGO operations, which became the base for further solutions implemented at The Church of Sweden and its International Division as well as for Diakonia Sweden.
The interest from other NGOs for this kind of system has been substantial. Many have also requested this system to be available as a cloud solution, based on SharePoint online in Office 365, due to Microsoft's appealing offer to the NGO sector regarding licenses. Based on what we've done previously along with the interest and wishes from several actors within the NGO sector, we packaged and refined the Programme and Project Management solution and created an Office 365 version - "NGO Online" based on SharePoint Online. Today we can offer a system that can be run either in the cloud or on local servers.
We are proud to have developed an IT system that helps NGOs improve the visibility and performance of teams, projects, programmes and the management of grants. The system has been very well received by both the users and the organisations and we are looking forward to cooperate with many more NGOs worldwide.
WE BUILD SOLUTIONS BASED ON ORGANISATIONAL UNDERSTANDING. WE HAVE SPECIFIC KNOW-HOW REGARDING REQUIREMENT AND ORGANISATIONAL ANALYSIS, IN HOW TO PLAN, DESIGN, DEVELOP, DEPLOY AND SUPPORT SOLUTIONS ADDRESSING DOCUMENT, PROJECT AND GRANT MANAGEMENT.
NGO Online is built on SharePoint Online, a part of the Microsoft Offfice 365 platform. SharePoint Online offers a rich set of standard functionality for information sharing, document management, task management, collaboration, workflows, integration and more. On top of this, the NGO Online platform offers extensive functionality specifically adapted and geared toward NGO operations.
NGO Online can be run on either the Office 365 platform or on-premise using SharePoint 2013. NGO Online is using WCF-services and a dedicated SQL Server database to improve performance and flexibility of the system. These components can be hosted in Azure or on-premise.
The architecture of NGO Online allows it to integrate with any modern ERP or HR system (for example; Agresso, Dynamics AX/Navision/CRM, PeopleSoft and SAP). Integrations can be set up using Web-services, SQL Server, BizTalk or similar integration platform.
