SAN DIEGO - Sparrow Data Solutions is pleased to announce they have joined the Esri Partner Program as a Silver Tier Partner – Recall, Esri is the world leader in location intelligence and mapping technologies. Esri Partners, excel in using ArcGIS and ArcGIS solutions to solve real-world problems and are experts at amplifying the Science of Where ™. As an Esri partner, Sparrow will leverage Esri technology to deliver solutions, content, and services to its customers.
Sparrow launched in 2018 in order to help non-profit organizations collect, process, and report their work to current and potential donors using specialized GIS tools. "We recognized the growing desire of many donors to not only see where their investments are being used but also, to visualize the outcomes of their work. "Unfortunately small NGO's sometimes struggle to access the same funding that larger NGO's receive in order to do the critical task of Monitoring and Evaluating their work to show Sustainability. To help out we decided to create a company that can provide them with the same tools as larger NGO's without having to hire full-time specialists." (Martha Rodgers, co-founder, Sparrow Data)
Sparrow's experience and flexible approach allow them to build a plan that helps non-profits effectively collect field data, make informed decisions based on the real-time state of their projects, and tell the organization's story to potential donors.
