Profile Information

Why are you interested in FrontlineSMS? How did you hear about it? (To help us filter out spammers, we need as MUCH detail as possible, else we may not be able to approve your request. If you'd rather not share this information openly please email info@frontlinesms.com before joining)
I am amazed about how widely available mobile infrastructure is in even the most remote communities. I think this is a great initiative to release the software and believe there are so many possibiltites here.
Tell us about you. (Please also add an image to your profile)
I am a volunteer with an NGO in Medellin Colombia. We with Afro-Colombian communities in the Choco Bioregion. We approach development from a social business perspective and thus deal in FairTrade goods. I am interested in how Frontline SMS can be used to transfer price information and how producers can reply in order to help manage supply/inventory. It is possible that we will pilot a project in coming months.

Hi Kevin,

 

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly, and thanks very much for giving permission to re-post! I have now re-posted the article on to the FrontlineSMS blog here, linking back to the original site for reference.

 

It will be great if you can share future information here on the community; I really look forward to learning about the results of your pilot!

 

Here at FrontlineSMS we are seeking to build up a collection of case studies, providing an insight in to the key learning gained by projects using our software. It would be great if we could perhaps put together a case study on your project? If you are interested, we would be happy to draft the case study based on the report and recommendations you are already putting together. To give you an idea of what a FrontlineSMS case study would look like you can see an example from Plan International here. Just an idea - do let me know if you'd like to take this forward.

 

Anyway, thanks for keeping in touch, and for all the valuable work you are doing using FrontlineSMS!

 

All the Best,

Florence

Hi Kevin,

 

Great to hear more about the project you are working on and your use of FrontlineSMS, through reading this blog post: http://colombiareports.com/colombia-news/economy/16631-text-messages-to-help-centuries-old-choco-mining-tradition.html

 

This post provides a really valuable example of how our software can be used! I wonder if it would be possible to re-post this on to the FrontlineSMS blog, to share with the wider FrontlineSMS community?

 

Please do stay in touch, and feel free to ask if you have any further questions about or news on using FrontlineSMS!

 

All the Best,

Florence

Dear Kevin,

I visited the Choco a few months back (Nuqui, Coqui....) and met  Sergio Arcila from Fundacion Espave.  Are you working for that group?

Hi Kevin,

Glad to hear that more people is aware of this excellent software in Colombia,
In regards to your question, The project still on early stages, I'm not particular with Colombia telco providers, I know that a friend of mine successfully deploy a Project in Barranquilla, I think he says that he worked a deal with MIO but again not sure about it. Now, you don't have to have your FSM box in choco.. you can have it, lets say in Medellin ( where additional telcos should be available) Please let me know if you need some help with that.

Regards,

Peter
