The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

LMMS is a stand-alone system that uses web-based mobile applications to better manage responses to disasters. The system enables digital registration of affected populations and automates how aid-agencies delivery humanitarian services, resulting in more effective, efficient and fully accountable practices. LMMS improves the effectiveness and efficiency of registration, distribution and project management while increasing accountability to both beneficiaries and donors. In a nutshell it automates business processes in digital software enabling humanitarian workers achieve their goals in a faster and more efficient way.
LMMS is developed by World Vision International for the humanitarian Industry and as such is currently used by over ten (10) International NGOs including UN agencies in over 25 countries.
LMMS is currently used by multiple humanitarian agencies; with diverse user groups including rapid emergency staff who handle human displacements, earthquakes, typhoons and other such responses; the capability to implement cash and electronic credit transfers in addition to managing the dispersal of traditional relief aid items; the capability to leverage modern technological advancements from cheaper smartphone devices to Cloud-based infrastructure for deploying centralized versions of the system
Today, LMMS is being used in urban and rural contexts, in refugee camps and in more settled communities. The system is being used under a variety of architectures ranging from multiple remote server deployments to consolidated servers being used by multiple agencies and local governments working together.
LMMS can work on most consumer grade devices running Android OS, which are easy to get and much cheaper than commercial grade devices. The system can import and export data from and into other systems thus enhancing data sharing and integration of systems.
