"Sigmah helps organisations to run projects and report on their activities more easily. The flexible configuration of the software allows each organization to organize their work methods themselves. The initial configuration encourages them to reflect about how they organize their internal processes, which is an essential exercise when adopting a quality approach. Using Sigmah in an organization leads to the application of good practices within the team, and allows everyone to speak the same language, as they work on the same, shared foundation."

“At Première Urgence Internationale, we feel that an open source and collaborative approach, jointly developed on the basis of the relatively homogenous needs of humanitarian aid organisations, is the best way for us to develop a project management solution that meets our needs in terms of durability, independence, and flexibility.”
Director of Operations
Première Urgence Internationale
"Sigmah is quite easy to configure and can be adapted to our needs. The entry point for Handicap International was project cycle management and, in particular, managing donor contracts. This entry point was chosen because it is also the way that the association is organized."
"Tools like the dashboard, the logical framework and the calendar allow you to monitor planned activities and the progress made on projects in real time. This gives you a clear and up-to-date overview of all your organisation’s projects. It also limits the common problems caused by using the “wrong version”, and the fact that you can easily find the “right” version helps to save time and increase effectiveness."
Researcher, Information Systems
“Thanks to its document management functions, Sigmah improves information management within NGOs. It helps to limit « infoxication » by centralising the different versions of documents needed for decision-making in a central database. It also helps to build the institutional memory of the organization and limit the loss of data that is caused by the high turnover within NGOs. The fact that documents are easy to access at headquarters and in the field, without having to go through various intermediaries , makes it easier to share knowledge between similar projects”.
