Warc partnered with Rippleworks to define the requirements of a new Service Delivery Unit platform
Warc helps smallholder farmers in Sierra Leone and Ghana grow their way out of poverty. Operating training farms to demonstrate best practices and profit potential for climate smart agriculture, and selling high quality farm inputs, Warc encourages broader uptake of modern agricultural practices.
Warc’s top priority was building the foundation and software systems to scale their Service Delivery Unit operations. Warc partnered with Rippleworks to define the requirements for a SDU operations minimal viable platform.
We approached the project with a clear idea of what we wanted to achieve but with doubts on how to get it done.
The project team helped us establish the foundations of developing something really big, something that will impact thousands of farmers.
The whole team started implementation right away and is excited to witness the fruits of this work.
