Sigmah, information management software for international aid projects

What does sigmah do?

Sigmah includes:

A dashboard to keep track of projects and funding

Sigmah’s home page is a dashboard that can be used to monitor projects and funding.

A tool for sharing and centralising documents

All key project and organisation documents are centralised in Sigmah and can be easily shared, both in the field and at headquarters. Different levels of access to documents and information can be established.

A project cycle management board

Sigmah allows you to configure your organisation’s project cycle and ensure that particular steps and practices are respected for each phase. Project cycles can easily be modified by the organization if their practices evolve over time.

A logical framework

Very often, the objectives, results and activities of international aid projects are presented in the form of logical frameworks. These can be entered into Sigmah and monitored.

A mechanism for monitoring indicators

It is possible to create and monitor all the indicators for each project, whether these are linked to the logical framework or not.

A calendar and reminders for each project

Meetings, tasks to be done and events linked to each project can be monitored by means of a calendar, with reminders.

An offline mode

The offline mode allows users to continue to work on Sigmah even when they no longer have an internet connection. They can then share their work with their collaborators by synchronising it when an internet connection is available again.


Sigmah has been developed based on a free and collaborative approach. The software is therefore constantly evolving so that it meets the needs of its users. Other features are currently being looked into. These can be found at the Sigmah Features Fair.
