Non-Profit

Driving employee connectivity, partner enablement, and customer experience; connecting people, process, technology, and data; enabling impact on experience while simplifying implementation

The Fourth Industrial Revolution will arguably become the most disruptive and transformative shift in history, and it’s happening at a rapid pace. One of the biggest areas of transformation will happen within the social sector. Non-profits, NGOs, and educational institutions have a tremendous opportunity to leverage new technologies to scale up their impact and ultimately achieve their critical missions. Advances in artificial intelligence and deep learning are helping make sense of this massive amount of data for delivering actionable insights to businesses and organizations alike.

Industry 4.0 offers huge opportunities to transform such organizations. In organizations that are often under-funded, resource optimization is key. Adoption of new technologies requires detailed planning for change-management across not only the digital architecture but also company culture. The compassionate vision of Non-profits combined with Industry 4.0 efficiencies has the potential to change millions of lives.

Amplo Global offers cost models for running corporate social responsibility programs for Non-profit organizations, enabling integration with non-profit ecosystems, leveraging its flagship product AmploFly4.0™.

Non-Profit Use Case

Customer Experience

A large non-profit organization was committed to improving their company culture and internal processes to deliver an improved client experience

Situation

Both the Associate CFO and Operational Director of the organization recognized the need for change management, particularly regarding the inefficiencies in the event management processes. The organization suffered from a resistance to new technology and a culture built on disparate processes. The result was less than optimal client experience, accentuated by an unacceptable ROI on technology advancements. Most work was still being done manually, despite serious corporate investment in what was to be company-wide technology.

Contributing Factors

The technologies that were available to the employees were not holistic, user-friendly or data driven. Employees in event management had settled on working independently, using their own array of software products and technologies, leading to inefficiency and a dearth of connected processes. Users were manually forced to follow up, escalating issues and doubling the workload. That minimized accurate data-driven decisions and contributed to repetitive errors.

Challenges

Top-down decision making and employee resistance to company-wide technologies and process updates were contributing to increased frustration at all levels and an inferior delivery of their services.

Modularized Solution from Amplo Global Inc.

Engaging in the AmploFly4.0 journey empowered the organization to better strategize technology changes, streamline processes and recharge its culture.  increased efficiency and improved productivity resulted from the framework AmploFly4.0 helped to establish for operationalizing existing technology, automating repetitive tasks, creating BOTs and measuring and tracking KPIs for employees. Those results supported their intention to apply AmploFly 4.0 initiatives to other challenges they currently face and will in the future.

Additional Benefits

Improved data collection from both vendors and ongoing processes fueled more informed strategic decisions. Connected technology and the implementation of a dashboard enhanced overall process visibility and the return on experience of users.

Green IT and Data

We can easily claim that our Green procurement programs can reduce expenditure and waste; increase resource efficiency; and influence production, markets, prices, available services and organisational behaviour. Also known as green or environmental
purchasing, green procurement compares price, technology, quality and the environmental impact of the product, service or contract.

Green is In

Green sourcing can also assist organisations in meeting multi-lateral requirements and guidelines which International Standards Organisation and other bodies have established. After reviewing current purchasing practices and policies of an organization along with life cycle assessment of the environmental impacts, the outcome is a regularly reviewed. Our “Green” services utilise fewer resources, are designed to last longer and minimise their impact on the environment from cradle to grave.

Green Infra

Investing in green infrastructure comes armed with many social, economic and environmental benefits, for water storage, purification and flood prevention, cooling urban heat islands, improved health, well-being and access to nature for people, as well as space and habitat for wildlife. Our strategies can incorporate both the natural environment and engineered systems to provide clean water, conserve ecosystem values and functions, and provide a wide array of benefits to people and wildlife.

Go green with our envious solutions

Our green infrastructure solutions can be applied on different scales, from the building level, to the broader landscape level. On the local level, green infrastructure practices include rain gardens, permeable pavements, green roofs, infiltration planters, trees and rainwater harvesting systems. On a larger scale, it impacts the preservation and restoration of natural landscapes like forests, floodplains and wetlands. Our Green infrastructure strategies will boost a company’s economy, enhance community health and safety, and provide recreation, wildlife, and other benefits.

Green Sourcing

As all companies are notching up their climate commitment game, their ambitions to source materials are also soaring! Be it green steel, recycled aluminum, or recycled plastic—that have lower emissions intensity than their conventional equivalents, production capacity for many pf these low-emissions materials, appears to fall far short of future demand.

Our strategies hence suggest that for supply chain decarbonization, companies should first understand both the emissions generated during the manufacturing of all the components and materials they now procure and their exposures to supply, demand, and price volatility for these inputs. We believe that charting a sourcing strategy to cut emissions spans over multiple time frames.

Green Supply Chain and Manufacturing

Integrating sustainable environmental processes into the traditional supply chain, like supplier selection and purchasing material, product design, product manufacturing and assembling, distribution and end-of-life management, our green supply chain involves value creation through the operations of whole chain. Though reducing air, water and waste pollution is the main goal, but it also enhances
the firms’ performance in terms of less waste manufacturing, reuse and recycling of products, reduction in manufacturing costs, greater efficiency of assets, positive image building, and greater customer satisfaction.

As you demand, so we supply

By implementing Green supply chain, the applications of the key sustainable development strategy outstand. Our module emphasizes how green practices can be adopted in firms to mitigate the environmental degradations and increase the economic and operational performance. We help our clients incorporate Green practices in supply chain management like:

Green material sourcing
Green marketing
Green management

Ecological design
Green transportation and reverse logistics
Renewable energy and biofuels Introducing green thought to hone your supply chains can help you save the environment and create a healthier bottom line. It is not just the ethical thing to do but also financially rewarding for the business.

Benchmarking

With the prioritization of ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) and the intense focus on climate change, Benchmarking has become a must to establish baselines, define industry best practices, identify risks and opportunities, and create a competitive environment within an organization. Our process can yield valuable data that helps companies evaluate and prioritize improvement opportunities, as well as, support lifecycle assessments and disclosure requirements.

Our competitive benchmarking can help determine whether or not the sustainability strategies are effective, provide recommendations for closing potential gaps, and assess the business value to be gained by addressing those gaps. Our process also provides a guidepost, so stakeholders, investors, customers, and industry peers have access to meaningful, standardized industry comparisons.

Materiality and Maturity Assessment

Our materiality and maturity assessment is best used as a strategic business tool that can benefit if applied as a sustainability lens to business risk, opportunity, trend-spotting and enterprise risk management processes. Rather than creating a separate one, our inclusive materiality process, can deliver valuable benefits, such as:

  • Ensuring business strategy takes account of significant social and environmental topics
  • Management of sustainability issues is embedded in wider business processes
  • Identifying trends on the horizon, such as water scarcity or changing weather patterns that could significantly impact a company’s value
  • Enabling different functions of the business to develop new products or services and stay ahead of competitors
  • Highlighting areas that are important but not currently addressed
