OpenBoxes Project

An open-source Logistics Management Information System designed for government and non-profit health systems in the developing world.

Openboxes project

Project Description

OpenBoxes was designed specifically for low-resource settings where existing infrastructure for electronic inventory management is limited. With minimal hardware requirements, flexible implementation options, an intuitive user interface, and user-friendly workflows, the software provides immediate results for the organizations working in challenging environments, who are looking for better inventory control and planning possibilities.

 

While OpenBoxes was built to address the specific needs of healthcare supply chains and supply chain staff in developing countries, new workflows and functionality can and have been built to adapt to the needs of other contexts.

 

Our role and the team

SolDevelo has been a key OpenBoxes partner since 2018. At the beginning, we worked with PIH and Justin Miranda to develop a new version of the system. Ever since we’ve accomplished this challenge, we are continuously contributing to OpenBoxes development, quality assurance, testing and maintenance.
