Clariwash Self-Washing Filtration System

Introducing ClariWash (pdf) The ClariWash self-washing filtration system is a water purification technology providing clean water to communities suffering health impacts from water-bourne disease such as typhoid and cholera. It has a low operational and maintenance profile and needs no power supply or control system nor spare or replacement parts. This makes it suitable to provide long term water security to poor communities lacking access to technical resources and support. The...

Webinar: How Mobile Tech Can Streamline Last Mile Supply chains

Without supply chain visibility, emerging market distribution efforts can experience stockouts that increase inventory costs, erode customer trust and decrease revenue. Mobile inventory management systems can help track stock levels and product movements between suppliers, warehouses and last mile distribution agents – even from offline smartphones or tablets. Using barcode scanning, demand planning and auditing tools, social enterprises and nonprofits selling products in emerging markets are decreasing delivery times and...
