The challenge

For 75 years Heifer has been working around the world to increase income, improve child nutrition, care for the Earth, and ultimately end world hunger and poverty.

Heifer struggled with systems unable to address donor transparency, reporting complexity, and a real time access to data globally. They had four or five different accounting systems spread across the globe and no way to get a comprehensive picture of the business.
