Commodity Tracking System Project Implementation in CARE Djibouti

Aidmatrix and CARE partnered together to enhance CARE's Commodity Tracking System (CTS), thanks to support from the UPS Foundation. Read the story from Tracy Allardice at CARE about the recent workshop in Thailand where 4 CARE country offices convened to discuss the CTS and its successful implementation in three locations in Djibouti.

Commodity Tracking System Project Update at CARE

The Commodity Tracking System (CTS) project held a workshop in February 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand with a group of CARE staff from around the world, representing 4 country offices – CARE Zimbabwe, CARE Kenya, CARE Bangladesh and CARE West Bank Gaza and representatives from CARE USA and CARE Canada HQ.  The objectives of the workshop were to enhance the knowledge of the CTS, review the recent enhancements, receive sign-off on the system, brainstorm about the further development of the Distribution module and conduct a mini Train the Trainer session.  CARE Zimbabwe brought 26 months of experience with the CTS to the workshop as they are the longest term users of the system and have contributed significantly to the development and enhancements to the system.  CARE Kenya came with many questions about the system as implementation planning is underway for the system to roll out in 5 locations in Kenya later this year.  The six locations are:  3 in Dadaab, 1 in Nairobi and 1 in Kisi.

After the workshop the CTS project team worked with CARE Zimbabwe to migrate their data to the latest platform of the CTS so they can enjoy the enhancements to the system.
